 Giant Dwarf strongly encourages masks at our venue

Justin Hamilton brings his friends together to (not) celebrate Christmas at Giant Dwarf.

Everyone knows Christmas can be a tricky time of year especially if you’d rather hang with Baby Yoda than Baby Jesus. On December 13 Hammo presents his Big Squid fauXmas Show at Giant Dwarf to help you navigate the holiday season. Come to the venue or watch online to see:

+ Rove McManus share what makes the perfect Dr Who Xmas special.
+ Cal Wilson’s “friend” Adele revel in her self-quarantine Yuletide.
+ Richard Fidler reveals the secret origin of Father Christmas.
+ Georgia Mooney sing the songs Carols by Candlelight are too afraid to cover.
+ Alice Fraser explains how a Jewish Lady Santa delivered goulash to a Buddhist household.
+ Alex Jae and Ben Ellwood discuss which movies will drive the family out of the lounge room.

Whether you’re in the venue or at home, you’ll be able to interact with the show and ask questions of your favourite acts as the night progresses.

This show is less “Bah Humbug!” and more “Bar Hammo!”

The Big Squid fauXmas Show can be enjoyed December 13, 6.00pm at Giant Dwarf or streamed online from the comfort of your own lounge.
