EAU CLAIRE — The Dave Rudolf Holiday Show, a free comedy concert for families with kids of all ages, will be presented Dec. 9 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The interactive family show will begin at 7 p.m. in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center.

Dave Rudolf's madcap theatrical production of songs, humor and heavy audience participation makes for an ideal family event. It features kids twisting to the "Candy Cane Twist," hula hooping to "Santa's Got a Zoot Suit," some traditional holiday tunes, Christmas parodies ("Oh Come, Oh Come, I Read the Manual," "The Little Dumber Boy," "Frosty the Slow Man") and lots of yuletide joy.

"Dave Rudolf captivates his audience," wrote the Chicago Sun Times. "Anything and everything that happens onstage or off during a Rudolf concert becomes fair game for his disarming wit."

Rudolf is a Chicago-area singer, songwriter and children's book author who has entertained families and children with his wit and musical talent for more than 20 years. He has written lyrics for Second City and Disney, his latter effort earning him a gold record, and his tunes have been featured on such diverse radio programs as Kids Radio, Dr. Demento and NPR. A 15-time nominee for National Association of Campus Activities Awards, he has received numerous awards from parent groups, including three Parents' Choice Honor Awards. His clean sense of humor and infectious energy captivates kids and adults and allows both groups to lose themselves in an enjoyable feel-good experience.

"Bubba Christmas" (2008), a follow up to his popular "Completely Cracked Christmas" (2002), is Rudolf's 22nd album.

Admission to the show is free. Candy canes, cookies and hot chocolate will be served. Donations of non-perishable food items for local food pantries are requested.

The show is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
