CHICAGO —- Can't find that perfect tree? Emotionally drained by those extra relatives? There is no way Santa can bring you peace on earth? Uh oh, you know what that means? The diagnosis: 'TIS THE SEASONAL DEPRESSION.
This holiday season let GayCo Productions lift your spirits ( especially the boozy kind ) and make your Yule tide even gayer. Through all new scenes and songs - from finding Santa's perfect mate, to seeing why it is better to give than to receive a terrifying present, to when your body type preferences bleed into your holiday décor - Gayco's 'TIS THE SEASONAL DEPRESSION will remind you why this is, allegedly, the most wonderful time of the year. Who needs a Hatchimal or a Google Home when you can have the best gift ever: laughter!
