Christmas is a time for giving and receiving, but it’s also a time for returning. Everyone has received a gift that made them contemplate buying the giver a home test from the National Institute of Mental Health for their next birthday. The Dallas Comedy House (2645 Commerce Drive) has a novel plan for disposing of those unwanted Christmas gifts. Their I Can’t Believe I Got This S*$& for Christmas?!? show will turn those worthless hunks of capitalist byproduct into the inspiration for improvised scenes for one special night. They'll even donate your unwanted items to charity. It's way better than making another dreaded trip to the mall or using the gifts as targets for skeet-shooting practice. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Tickets are $8-$10 and they're available at dallascomedyhouse.com.
