Funny, weird, light-hearted story
It has the feeling of a TV sitcom, complete with multi-generational relationships, a mix of plots, and a goofy character that may or may not be real.
Really, the play Harvey by Mary Chase.
The Nativity Scene is a well-orchestrated series of disasters that keeps piling up.
Squirrel Fishing with Doofus
Never got tired of listening to Conlan's characters. Especially Doofus.
