Mack & Poppy holiday shows in LA Dec. 22

Mack & Poppy will return to Los Angeles to celebrate the holidays with It’s Christmas! (F#*k The Mayans!), for two shows only on Saturday, December 22 at 8pm and 10pm, at the Cavern Club Celebrity Theatre inside Casita Del Campo Restaurant in Silver Lake. Assuming the world doesn't end the day before, Mack and Poppy,accompanied by Jack Cheddar at the piano, will bring their one-of-a-kind Christmas show to LA audiences. Featuring favorite tunes from last year's show as well as new material, Mack and Poppy will once again give holiday revelers an irreverent evening of song and laughter that's sure to be talked about ... at least until New Year's Eve. 

Crooner Mack Diamond (Tod Macofsky) began his career as a child star, singing on street corners with his two older brothers, Shlomo and Moishe. Later, Mack suffered a decade of depression and alcoholism in Las Vegas, where he spent eight years performing his solo show, A Yiddishe Mackie, at The Imperial Palace. He met the lovely Poppy Fields while she was in the chorus of Jubilee!, and the rest is showbiz history.

Southern Belle Poppy Fields (Christopher Michael Graham) escaped the narrow-minded confines of Possum Trot, Alabama, and traveled the world as a singer/dancer/actress, entertaining celebrities,  businessmen,  and  heads-of-state. After a  successful  beauty  pageant  career, the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas called, where Poppy wed and divorced four husbands before finally meeting and marrying the “Sensation of the 24-hour Buffet,” entertainer Mack Diamond.
