For a few days at the end of the year, guests at Walt Disney World will be able to see an improvisational comedy show called "The Comedy Warehouse Holiday Special."

The Comedy Warehouse was a popular club on Pleasure Island, but is currently closed. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, the holiday special will run from December 23 through January 5. The show was held last year as well, but at the much smaller ABC Sound Studio and only for seven days. With the theater filled to capacity at every show, this year the much larger Premier Theater will be used; the run has been extended to 14 days.

Alumni from The Comedy Warehouse will be among the performers in the show, which will use suggestions from the audience to remake holiday classics. According to the Disney Parks Blog, the show will include "holiday songs, stories, poems and movie scenarios." Performances are included in daily park admission.
