Oops! I Christmassed Again

When: Fridays. Continues through Dec. 30 2011

Britney Spears turns 30 next month, but it's hard to imagine her outgrowing her role as a national punching bag. ComedySportz's lamentable update on A Christmas Carol imagines Spears as the humbug in need of a yuletide tune-up from pop stars past (Madonna), present (Gaga), and future (Bieber). Whether you idolize or despise the chosen celebs, this erratic, thinly plotted string of music-video reenactments offers little in the way of entertainment. There are humorous moments (Thom Gaughn has many of them, playing K-Fed as a bumbling dad to little Sean and Jayden James), but they're crowded out by cheap, repetitive, obvious jokes that keep this 45-minute show from going much of anywhere. —Keith Griffith
