Any Christmas special that starts with dancers lip syncing poorly on rollerskates should be alright with me. I don’t know who Russell Peter’s is, but he starts off his show with some horrible comedy about how Asian immigrants talk, so…

I want to start by saying this is not a holiday special, or a non-denominational special. This is actually a Christmas special.

Ok, Russell. Like many Christmas variety shows, this one has its fair share of celebrity visitors, including Pamela AndersonMichael Bublé
Jon Lovitz
, and Goapele Mohlabane. Goapele is one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen in my life. And she has a great voice! She’s basically the best thing about this special though. Buble ain’t too shabby either.

The jokes are pretty silly and not LOL-silly, but roll your eyes silly. And there are plenty that are off-color or at the expense of someone else, so use your own judgment as to whether or not that’s something you like to watch. I found it pretty charming that Peters had his own mother and then one-year old daughter co-star in the special. One big pro: it’s short. Otherwise, I would skip this one.
