Get Ready for a Hilarious Holiday Extravaganza: Paul Lynde's Festive Special on Amazon Prime!

TRAILER - Making the Yuletide Gay from Cinephobia Releasing on Vimeo.

Get ready for a baby boomer's delight with a side of festive hilarity! The comedic genius Bruce Vilanch, known for "Get Bruce!", teamed up with director Scott Rockett to create a side-splitting TV special hosted by none other than the iconic Paul Lynde, brilliantly channeled by Michael Airington.

In this uproarious holiday extravaganza, Lynde plays host to a star-studded lineup featuring Tab Hunter (played by Spencer Day), Sal Mineo (brought to life by David Hernandez), and the flamboyant Liberace (performed by David Maiocco). Joining the merry band are Evie Harris (played by Jack Plotnick), along with special appearances by Seth Rudetsky, Jackie Beat, and Lady Bunny as themselves.

This outrageously funny variety special takes your favorite queer legends from both past and present on a tour de force of festive performances. The musical romp, filled with original music and lyrics by the 14-time Emmy-winning composer and arranger Dominic Messinger, is a celebration of Christmas with a queer twist.

Liberace's piano numbers, cheeky sexual innuendos, a never-ending flow of libations, and a collection of daring Christmas song remakes that would make your grandmother blush – this fabulous special has it all. It's a perfect blend of nostalgia and contemporary humor, promising to bring a little Christmas QUEER into your celebrations.

You can catch all the laughter and merriment exclusively on Amazon Prime.
