"It's Christmas Eve. A beleaguered last-minute shopper is desperate to find the hottest toy of the season at All-Mart when a holiday shopping brawl knocks her unconscious and catapults her into… Dick Cheney's Holiday Spectacular 2005! It a macabre, hilarious world of bling, billionaires, and season's greed-ings featuring all of Dick's favorite carols. Highlights include: "We Three Kings (of Petroleum Are)", "Toys for the World (Are Made by Kids)," and "The Halliburton Chorus." This twisted holiday revue also features the 24-Carat Rockettes and a reenactment of Dick's favorite film: It's a Wonderful Presidency," state press notes.

The Billionaire Follies are the performing wing of Billionaires For Bush, "celebrating George W. Bush and the emerging plutocracy in song and sketch." The Follies have performed everywhere from the National Press Club (where Al Franken opened for them) to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the Million Worker March, to venues including Webster Hall, Spirit, and The Slipper Room in New York City. They have sung live on FuseTV, as well as on Air America's Majority Report, WBAI, and WNYE.

Billionaires for Bush is "a national do-it-yourself grassroots media campaign using humor and street theatre to expose politicians who support corporate interests at the expense of everyday Americans. Through witty satirical messaging, high production values, culture-jamming actions, and positioning themselves on the cusp of the progressive movement's advance guard, B4B strives to affect change for good in this country, and to inspire and hearten the American Left."

Ace of Clubs is located inside Acme at 9 Great Jones Street (9 Great Jones Street, inside Acme -- accessible from the 6 train at Bleecker or the B,D,V,F trains at Lafayette). Tickets are $15; they are available by calling 212-352-3101 or visiting www.TheaterMania.com.
