An SCTV gem: Dusty Towne’s Sexy Holiday Special

Although I spend a lot of time focusing more on Christmas present, there’s classic holiday fare that I enjoy as well. One that’s more off the beaten path is an SCTV classic, “The Dusty Towne Sexy Holiday Special.”

The Dusty Towne character, portrayed by the wonderful Catherine O’Hara, actually only appeared twice, but her spot-on imitation of Rusty Warren’s slightly risque fare always delights. Featuring Andrea Martin as a Solid Gold dancer and John Candy singing a song while portraying drag icon Divine, it hits a lot of high notes in just a few minutes.

Enjoy a few laughs, a few stepped-on jokes and a number of choruses of “Isn’t that cute? Isn’t that true?” while enjoying the holidays.
