He’s presented the quirky North Bay holiday show Twisted Christmas Live for seven years, and now, longtime Bohemian stage reviewer, playwright and general man-about-town David Templeton hosts Twisted Shorts, an evening of short films celebrating the offbeat side of the 25th of December. Combining live commentary with weird short films, Templeton and co-organizer Dan Zastrow are going for a vintage late-night-television, movie-show feel, and the results should prove to be hilarious. Among other films, the 90-minute program includes Santalicious, in which Santa’s reindeer investigate Mr. Claus’ sudden weight loss; Present Tense, a mock home movie in which a Christmas morning gift swap turns horribly awry; and the bright and chipper Suicidal Christmas Trees, a look into the various miseries and ailments of our arboreal companions. Take a walk on the wild side with Twisted Shorts on Thursday, Dec. 10, at the Rafael Film Center. 1118 Fourth St., San Rafael. 7pm. $10. 415.454.1222.Gabe Meline
