Dave Fitzsimmons’ “An Arroyo Café Christmas” 

Yes, he works for the other paper, but really doesn't Dave Fitzsimmons belong to everyone in Tucson? You don't have to answer that question. He does. It's the holidays, and our city's political drawing jester returns with a crew of other jesterly folk on Saturday, Dec.20, 2 p.m. at the Rialto Theater. The performance of this "new old-fashioned radio variety show," is also a taping for Arizona Public Media/ NPR 89.1/KUAZ 90.5. It features KVOA's Tom McNamara, MixFM's Marty Bishop , American Idol Finalist Crystal Stark, Mariachi Membrilo, Cowboy Troubadour Bill Ganz, The Grandsons of the Pioneers, and The Arroyo Cafe Players: Jay Taylor, veteran funny man, ad man, once appeared on the Tonight Show, Elliot Glicksman, attorney and comedian, Bridgitte Thum, B-Line waitress and '"Rosa", Mike Sterner, writer and stand-up comedian as Wilbur the Wildcat, comedian Henry Barajas, comedienne Nancy Stanley, Trailer Park Queen "Lurleen" and Mr. Theatre, Nick Sievert, of Gaslight and the Great American Playhouse. Tickets $10 at the Rialto, $15 at the door. If you bring a food item for the Southern Arizona Food Bank you'll get in for $10.
