'Santaland Diaries' at the Gamm


From award-winning humorist, playwright and National Public Radio contributor David Sedaris, a dose of unconventional holiday humor. The author's real-life experiences as a Macy's Christmas elf named Crumpet...  including a humiliating job interview, elf indoctrination, run-ins with miscast Santas, pushy parents and a host of oddball characters...are merrily subversive and fall-on-your-knees funny! Gamm Resident Actor Steve Kidd reprises his role as Crumpet the surly Macy's elf in the retelling of Sedaris' comic monologue about life in a crass, commercial winter wonderland.

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
