Christmas Without Tears 2018 with Harry Shearer & Judith Owen

A tradition that began in Harry Shearer and Judith Owen’s Santa Monica home, these annual gatherings have grown into a heartwarming house party around the piano that involves and entertains fellow performers and audience members alike. Since 2005, when the first public performance was staged at the Walt Disney Concert Hall to aid the people of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, Christmas Without Tears has been a guilt-free way of having fun and giving back. A portion of the proceeds from this London performance will benefit The West London Mission

A reverent and irreverent antidote to the most stressful of seasons, the evening includes both invited performers and surprise guests who drop into Harry and Judith’s onstage living room and share a song or a joke to bring the holiday spirit to all. Comics, magicians, and even circus acts have been welcome additions, adding the perfect mix that makes this a true variety show.

A throwback to simpler times, this homespun variety show is both festive romp and salve for the soul, serving as a reminder to all that Christmas (in Owen’s words) is a time to be with the ones you love… and sometimes, even family!
