Comedian Frank DeLima’s Christmas gift to fans and followers is a parody of the yuletide classic, “Blue Christmas.”
In his treatment, DeLima moans and groans – like most of us – about the prevailing inflation that affects every aspect of life. Eating – brunch, to cut out one meal. Shopping – a single banana, instead of the whole bunch. Commuting – selling his Caddy because of gas prices.
Of course, he groans In his own inimitable manner. In pidgin. This time, in his video, a companion – a sock puppet.
“Blue Christmas” sounds like a new song, with his new lyrics:
“Ima havin’ a Blue Christmas
“Hamburgah price outrageous
“Thanksgiving dinna set me back
“I gotta sell my Caddalac
“My money…no can go as far…”

The video also is posted on my Facebook page.
DeLima will premiere this parody at his holiday brunch show, at 12:30 a.m. today (Dec. 11) at Blue Note Hawaii, at the Outrigger Waikiki resort. Doors open at 10:30 a.m. (Blue Note announced the time changes earlier this morning).
And that’s Show Biz. …
