NY Times raves "A delightfully thorny account of working as a Yuletide elf at Macy's. Priceless observations, both outrageous and subtle!" NY Newsday hails it as "a sardonic, merrily subversive tale—just the antidote to bright-eyed joy before too many shopping days have passed!" When it was first broadcast, it generated more requests for tapes than any story in Morning Edition's history except the death of Red Barber. It was brought to life off-Broadway, had a sell-out run at the Playhouse in 2015 and 2016, and once again, stage and screen personality Patrick Censoplano dons the candy-cane tights for the holidays in this outrageously funny one-man play about the author’s experiences as an unemployed writer taking a job as an elf at Macy’s department store in New York City. "Sedaris fills his one-man show with loads of different characters, which a charismatic Patrick Censoplano effortlessly handles. Censoplano seamlessly morphs and delineates into dozens of characters."
