This exclusive, seven-show engagement is sure to delight, as John serves up a steady stream of hilarious and heartwarming stories from his childhood.
Spend a few moments with John, remembering the simple things that made the holidays so special, from handcrafted Christmas toys and trees purchased at the Odd-Lot-Tree-Lot to the annual Gas Company/WE Energies Christmas Cookie Book, New Year’s Eves in the finished basement and many more.
More Holiday Tales with John McGivern recounts holidays past and present, plus all the richness and joyful chaos of life in the McGivern household around the holidays.
Don’t miss More Holiday Tales with John McGivern —a performance from the heart that is sure to give loads of laughs and a warm, holiday glow.
John is best known for his Emmy-award winning work on PBS. His one-man shows, The Early Stories Of John McGivern, Midsummer Night McGivern and John McGivern’s Home For The Holidays tell the stories of being the third born of six kids in a working-class Irish Catholic Family in Milwaukee.
His stories are personal and funny and touching and familiar. His themes are based in family and remind us all that as specific as we might believe our experiences are, we all share a universal human experience.
