Broadway veterans Julia Mattison and Joel Waggoner of Advent Carolndar, the viral social media sensation where the duo created one original holiday song for the first 25 days in December for the past three years, are back with their first-ever live shows to get everyone in the holiday spirit at Chelsea Music Hall (407 W 15th St) on Monday, December 12 at 7 PM and 9:30 PM.

With Advent Carolndar's first live performances, fans attending the show can expect to sing along to such hits as "On the Brink!," "There's a Reindeer in Our Yard (We Should Eat It)," "A Very Sondheim Christmas," and "Stable Girl," as well as clutch their pearls while Joel and Julia nosedive into some one-night-only improvised carols that are guaranteed to go violently off the rails.

"Advent Carolndar was first born out of a wild caroling party at Julia's house in 2018 where we sang 'Why is Sausage Not a Christmas Food' until 5am and neighbors threatened to call the cops," said Joel and Julia. "Now, we're so excited to finally be caroling with friends again, bringing our hijinks to Chelsea Music Hall, and joining our wonderful fans for a night of laughs, booze, and holiday cheer. If the cops are called this time, we will be sure to make them join us in a singalong."

The live show at Chelsea Music Hall is directed and produced by Tim Drucker with associate direction by Joyah Spangler.

Tickets for the live performances at Chelsea Music Hall on Monday, December 12 are currently on-sale at DICE here. Doors will open at 6:30 PM for the 7 PM show and at 9 PM for the 9:30 PM show.
