A Christmas Carol - new video from the Socks
Just in time for Christmas, the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre have recorded their version of A Christmas Carol, which they hope you'll enjoy (and which you can look forward to being heavily plugged this time next year).
Two lucky audiences in London and Bath had the pleasure of seeing this sketch live in our two Christmas Specials earlier in the month, which were shows I dearly wish I'd filmed. But one is always nagged by the fear that videoing a show will jinx it, and I erred on the side of having a good show rather than getting it on tape. As a result both shows went marvellously, and I think the Bath audience's reaction to A Christmas Carol would have been the ideal one to capture for posterity (though their laughter did manage to stretch the routine out to a good twenty minutes, so you very much had to be there to get the best out of it).
All of which suggests we really have to line up more Christmas Specials for December 2014. In the meantime here's a bit of seasonal fun for you all. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year when it comes.
