All Mariah Carey wants for Christmas if for you to endlessly laugh. The pop star linked up with Funny or Die to head up Mariah’s Holiday Sketchtacular, an eight-episode series tracking Carey preparing for the holidays.
The show will be a grab bag of New York adventures for Carey. In a pair of installments, she will be in an animated retelling of “ ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” while in others, she will be auditioning new Santas for an upcoming holiday concert series. FOD regular Bryan Safi will also appear in Carey’s in-show cooking program.
“I loved collaborating with Funny or Die on this series of holiday-themed sketches,” Carey said in a statement. “These videos are fun, festive and full of holiday cheer, and I had an absolute blast making them.”
“We at Funny Or Die feel strongly that you haven’t celebrated the holidays until you’ve listened (preferably in one sitting) to Merry Christmas, Mariah Carey’s landmark album from 1994,” FOD president of production Mike Farah said in a statement. “So when given the opportunity to re-team with Mariah, the indisputable Queen of Christmas, on a holiday inspired sketch comedy series, we thought it was the perfect and hilarious addition to our go90 channel.”
