Tori Scott, “the Bette Midler of the new millennium” (Provincetown Magazine), returns to Joe’s Pub with her annual holiday show Vodka is the Reason for the Season.
Don't miss this "soul-baring singer and sharp comedian" (Huffington Post) as she recounts her early childhood fascination with The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and her time spent as a singing elf in an old folks’ home. Tori will take you on a festive autobiographical journey to celebrate what is truly special about this time of year (spoiler: it’s alcohol induced blackouts). Tori’s shameless holiday show includes stories new and old and songs by Dolly Parton, Madonna, Michael Jackson, and more.
★★★★ “Her voice is stunningly powerful…warm, generous and funny” – Everything Theatre, London
