The holidays are not that funny. Christmas with the Kranks? No thanks. Adam Sandler's Hanukkah animated flop, Eight Crazy Nights? Sorry, Adam, you should have just stopped with the song. Curmudgeonly-ness, however, is very funny. And now, Adam Corolla aims his signature rants at the holidays on his current stand up tour. There are so many things to be bitter about, where could he go with it? Being ungrateful for crappy presents? Phony yuletide cheer? Earbleedingly-incessant Christmas songs? Whatever sacred tradition he chooses to stab, it's sure to be hilarious and give Scrooges like us a warm, fuzzy feeling we haven't felt at Christmas since we realized our parents lied to us about Santa Claus.
