Revisiting her lost 1972 Granada TV special Christmas Agogo! (to this day considered an unaired classic) this Christmas join down on her luck comedy-cabaret-chanteuse Miss Hope Springs as she rummages under her tree to unwrap a glittering array of original seasonal songs from her back-catalogue, all sprinkled with a fine frosting of vintage-Vegas glitz.
Expect fabulously festive numbers performed live at the piano with cheeky Cha-cha-cha's swinging Jazz, finger snapping Pop and instant sing-a-longs including Christmas Calypso, Santa is a Woman, Bagels and of course her un-saintly theme song The Devil Made Me Do It. If you get enough eggnog down her Hope might even spill the beans on her 'Ritz to the pits' life and loves in LA, Paris and beyond with Liberace, Tab Hunter, Barry Manilow amongst others in this hysterical trip down her, by now somewhat potholed, memory lane.
