‘Tis the Seasonal Depression – A Holiday Spectacular!

Chicago’s premier LGBTQ comedy company debuts a brand new sketch comedy revue for that roller coaster of feelings that is the holiday season.


Can’t find that perfect tree? Emotionally drained by those extra AF relatives? There is no way Santa can bring you peace on earth? Uh oh, you know what that means?  The diagnosis: ‘TIS THE SEASONAL DEPRESSION.

This holiday season let GayCo Productions lift your spirits (especially the boozy kind) and make your Yule tide even gayer. Through all new scenes and songs – from finding Santa’s perfect mate, to seeing why it is better to give than to receive a terrifying present,  to when your body type preferences bleed into your holiday décor – Gayco’s ‘TIS THE SEASONAL DEPRESSION will remind you why this is, allegedly, the most wonderful time of the year. Who needs a Hatchimal or a Google Home when you can have the best gift ever: laughter!
