Yuletide Tales

Originally Aired: Tuesday, December 22, 2020


Yuletide Tales is a storytelling show on a holiday theme. It’s about that most jolly time of the year, except when it isn’t.

Hosted by WNYC’s Jim O’Grady, host of Blindspot, a podcast by WNYC Studios and The History Channel.

Join the fun — and share in the schadenfreude — as our stellar lineup of New York City comedy and storytelling veterans wax holiday hilarity.


  • Ophira Eisenberg, host of NPR’s Ask Me Another, who asks the question, “Who brings Jewish kids presents?”
  • Adam Wade, Twenty time Moth StorySLAM winner, whose Christmas festivities in 1998 consisted of going to work at Rockefeller Plaza and eating cold chicken fingers from TGI Friday’s.
  • Andy Christie, host of the legendary Liar Show, with a story about how his dad expropriated presents for his sons from dead residents of his boarding-house on 14th Street.
  • Angel Yau, a comedian, storyteller, actor and filmmaker from Queens, New York who has been recently featured on a BBC short doc on being a comedian dealing with mental health.
  • And others!
