Christmas in July 2019: Dominic Caruso
Christmas in July 2019: Dominic Caruso of 1701 Press
1. What is your favorite Saturday Night Live Christmas/Hanukkah/New Year's Sketch?
It's a toss up between Steve Martin's "Christmas Wish" and "Desert Island Christmas" featuring Paul Simon marooned with Victoria Jackson (who just happens to know how to create incredible Christmas gifts--like a multifunction wristwatch--from scratch, using only natural resources found on the island).
2. Do you most look forward to watching holiday episodes from series? Specials? Movies? Animation? or, all of it?
I have my favorites, but I like being surrounded by all of it and feeling as though Thanksgiving through New Year's is one big party. That's the vibe I like, anyway.
3. What's your favorite soundtrack from a holiday program? (it doesn't have to have been officially released as an album--just what program features your favorite collection of music?)
Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. I mean, come on.
4. What one program are you patiently (or impatiently) waiting for me to review on this blog?
I don't know. I do enjoy weird things & you've covered many. Is Christopher Walken in anything Christmas-themed?
5. What change in Christmas entertainment have you noticed over the years? Do you like the trend?
There's a lot more of it, I think. The music in Christmas entertainment is getting more diverse and better, too. Even workaday productions often include some cool Christmas deep cut, or a special recording/performance by one of the actors, which is always fun to discover. So, I like the trend.
