And BWC cast member Lauren Adams ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt") talks about what's on everyone's mind: who else wants to sleep with hot Santa Kurt Russell? Featuring the improvised classic Holiday songs: "Olives On The Ends Of My Fingers (An Orphan's Manicure)", "He's Not Heavy, He's My Heavy Meats for the Holidays", "I Need More Wine to Do You In This Hallmark Christmas Movie" and "Crap Christmas Gift Quartet".
