Jimmy James Christmas Show

“Older than Britney but younger than Madonna,” native Texan Jimmy James (born James Jude Johnson in Laredo) rose to prominence in the 1980s impersonating Marilyn Monroe so flawlessly that his increasingly iconic L.A. Eyeworks ad (shot by celebrity photographer Greg Gorman) has erroneously inspired everything from tattoos and iPad cases to postage stamps in the Central African Republic. Since retiring his Marilyn act in the 1990s, James has proven his chops as a recording artist (exemplified by the Billboard-charting 2006 club hit “Fashionista”), vocal impressionist (channeling everyone from Billie Holiday and Barbra Streisand to Elvis and Eartha Kitt) and comedic storyteller. Hosted by local stand-up Joan Riviera, the Los Angeles-based entertainer’s Christmas homecoming show promises a “festive sprinkling of holiday songs,” including “Blue Christmas” (as Cher), “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” (as Judy Garland) and “Feliz Navidad” (as Bette Davis).
