Hallmark Christmas movies are the fruitcake of TV. They have formulaic plots, the same cast of white actors and cheesy titles (A Christmas Wedding Tail, anyone?). Some find them a guilty pleasure, others have dedicated entire podcasts to their schlock. UCB’s Public Access Presents: The Best of the Worst Hallmark Holidays! takes obvious inspiration from this staple of hokey holiday entertainment. Eric Chad Ho and Koschka Bahr host the show, where three improv teams will read the synopsis of old and new Hallmark film titles and perform wholly improvised remakes, sometimes using audience participation. It’s better than watching Candace Cameron-Bure or Lori Loughlin.

UCB Sunset, 5419 W. Sunset Blvd., East Hollywood; Fri., Dec. 27, 10:30 p.m.; $7. (323) 908-8702, sunset.ucbtheatre.com.
