The Rip Nelson Holiday Quarantine Special

Show Information

Hell in a Handbag Productions presents the return of America’s favorite has-been funnyman, Rip Nelson (Ed Jones) as he tries to make sense of out of this crazy Covid world, doing what he does best- making people laugh.

It’s 2020 and Rip is in the hospital after an ill-advised gig at on a pride cruise. Rip’s devoted make-up woman and confidante Gladys (Lori Lee), is worried sick, but Rip is more upset about the fact that Ryan Seacrest will be taking over as the host for his television holiday special! Rip’s not going to let anything- including the overbearing Nurse Ursula (Terry McCarthy) stop him from being on that show!

A determined Rip makes it to the studio with a little help from trippy magician, Doug Henning (David Lipschutz) and some very strong painkillers ‘borrowed’ from Nurse Ursula.

Rip soon finds himself in his weirdest television special ever, validated by the show’s opening number, ‘It’s a Really Weird Christmas’.

Join us as Rip goes on an amazing journey and is forced to confront his biggest holiday nightmare ever- himself.
