Dances with Words Goes Online!


Monday, December 7, 7:30 PM CST

What has a hundred legs and shouts, “Ho, ho, ho?” A Santapede.

Bestselling author Richard Lederer and musical comedian Bill Shipper are taking their hilarious wordplay show online for Christmas and the Holidays!

From "A Cat’s Twelve Days of Christmas" to a pun-thology of Christmas carols,  DANCES WITH WORDS celebrates the fun world of Christmas with puns, jokes, poems, history, and song. You'll hear favorite carols and holiday songs to enjoy and parodies to laugh at. 

After performing together in person dozens of times in front of thousands of people, these two verbaholic punsters bring their memorable musicality, rhythmic rhymes, tons of tonality, and heaps of hilarity to the howl-idays.
