2Good4U, the Bay Area's only all-girl boy band, spices up the holidays with "Who Doesn't Like Ass in December?," a variety show of sketch comedy, music, and spoken word that focuses on what we all want for Xmas: booty

There are only so many times you can watch Martha Stewart chopping down a Christmas tree before gagging on your eggnog, but 'tis the season for bad TV specials. Before you resign yourself to sleeping through the month, check out "Who Doesn't Like Ass in December?," 2Good4U's attempt to spice up the holidays. The Bay Area's only all-girl boy band presents its take on the standard variety show with a lineup of sketch comedy, music, and spoken word that's as wacky as you'd expect from a group whose members include RK Cola (the country-western crossover star), Pepper Tumeric (the virgin), and Butterscotch Brunette (the sexy secretary).

Poking fun at the PC mood that dominates the holidays, the crew of comedians and musicians has produced a nondenominational show that everyone can agree upon. What's the one thing all people -- regardless of race, religion, gender, and sexuality -- can see eye-to-eye on?, wondered 2Good4U. You guessed it: ass, butt, fanny, tuchis, can. Whatever you call it, everybody loves booty.

Hosted by the Mistletoe Ho, the extravaganza features 2Good4U's festive remakes of pop tunes (Shakira's "Underneath Your Clothes" becomes "Underneath Your Tree," a ditty devoted to the ways each band member rings in the season). Special guests like Mike Spiegelman and Bucky Sinister spread joy to the world, while Kitten on the Keys, Teeze! A Tribute to 80s Hair Bands, and other musical groups regale viewers with carols and mayhem. Though the evening's based on pleasing everyone, not all of the acts are without controversy. One routine includes a parody of an arts and crafts television show host who takes her post-9/11 patriotism too far by decorating her tree with the severed heads of Arab terrorists; another is an all-cast rendition of Band Aid's schlock-rock "Do They Know It's Christmas?" that could have the audience up in arms.
