In this hilarious sequel to Greater Tuna, it's Christmas in the third-smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including the hot competition in the annual lawn-display contest. In other news, voracious Joe Bob Lipsey's production of A Christmas Carol is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. Many colorful Tuna denizens, some you will recognize from Greater Tuna and some appearing here for the first time, join in the holiday fun.

Director Comstock also directed the sold-out run of Greater Tuna in summer of 2017. He said, "I'm thrilled to return to Tuna with a new cast of excellent actors. It's an enormously fun way for everyone to enjoy the holidays!"
Playing all the citizens of Tuna in this quick change tour-de-force are Joel Miller (An American Daughter, Doublewide,TX) and Benjamin Liberman (Talley's Folly, House of the Spirits, Complete Bible Abridged).
In Tuna, we see a collection of wannabes, ne'er-do-wells and felons, all tangled up in each other's lives as Christmas approaches.... Liberman and Miller are both excellent in their uninhibited goofiness.... Miller deliver[s] over-the-top characters many times, and he has a gift for it.... [Liberman] matches Miller's zaniness punch for punch.... The production team delivers well across the board. This is nice light and crazy fare.... (-Rob Spiegel, Talkin' Broadway Regional Reviews)
