Some sketch characters are so vivid and sharply defined, you just want to see more. That was the case two years ago when Second City's Paul Bates and Doug Morency debuted their Cajun father-and-son musical duo the Williamson Playboys. Their now classic sketch was a MuchMusic and MTV Behind-The-Scenes parody during which the ukulele-playing, 143-year-old Cecil (Morency) and his tuba-playing papa, Rufus (Bates), took credit for creating every genre of music. Their latest comeback sees them warbling their way through a full-length Christmas show this weekend at the Tim Sims. Guesting are former SC mates Lisa Brooke, Sandy Jobin-Bevans and Marc Hickox (playing Heino), as well as upcoming teen sketch sensation the Young & The Useless.
