Santa Claus. Saint Nick. Big Bad Snow Daddy. He may go by different names, but he’s always the same guy. Or is he? The Master of Toys (trademark pending) has taken many forms on Comedy Central. Here are some that you may have missed.
THE SANTA WHO OFFERS DISCOUNTS
Nathan Fielder had a great idea: Let kids take discount photos with Santa Claus in the summer. But the plan went to hell, thanks to one tiny detail: Nathan didn’t have permission from the mall to be there. Look, folks, if you ask us, it doesn’t matter when children see Santa. What matters is that children see him get escorted out by security.
THE SANTA WHO TERRORIZES THE PLANET EXPRESS GANG
Ho, ho, ho, are you excited for Santa Claus? Enjoy that feeling while it lasts. In the future, Santa is an evil weapon-wielding robot feared throughout the universe. Beware — and make sure your Christmas bunker is stocked up with seasonally appropriate canned food.
THE SANTA WHO SELLS LIQUEUR
Santa may keep himself busy all December, but what’s the guy supposed to do the rest of the year? Sell booze, that’s what. As the Upright Citizens Brigade discovered, the jolly old guy is pretty fond of hanging out in liquor stores and bullying parents in front of their children. Keep up the good work, Santa!
