Q & A with Eddie Mujica of Second City

Mujica_Eddie_06.2013_smMetropolis: Holidays in the Heights celebrates both the highs and lows of the holiday season. What are some of your favorite (or least favorite) things about this time of year?

Eddie: Favorite: Holiday movies. I try to watch Home Alone and Jingle All The Way once a year. Also, flying back home to visit family and get away from the cold for a few days. Least favorite: Paying for said flight.

Metropolis: Without giving too much away, what is your favorite sketch from Holidays in the Heights?

Eddie: I love all of the audience interaction sketches, the ones we get to improvise each night. We sing an improvised “sexy” Christmas song that’s a ton of fun.

Metropolis: That famous New York sketch show has some pretty memorable holiday scenes as well. Are there any that stand out in your mind as favorites or that inspired you in any way?

Eddie: SNL’s got a ton of classics… Schweddy Balls; Jimmy Fallon, Horatio Sanz, Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan singing “I Wish It Was Christmas Today”; “D*ck in a Box”… all so good.

Metropolis: And, of course, what we all really want to know… egg nog or hot chocolate?

Eddie: #teamhotchocolate
