NEW YORK, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Mariah Carey is getting in the holiday sprit with comedy troupe Funny or Die to star in a new eight-part series, Mariah's Holiday Sketchtacular.
Set to premiere Tuesday on Verizon's go90 video app, the sketch comedy series will feature Carey and a host of Funny or Die comedians getting ready for the holidays around New York City.
Episodes include Carey holding Santa auditions for an upcoming concert, Carey hosting a cooking show and an animated retelling of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas narrated by the pop star herself.
"I loved collaborating with Funny or Die on this series of holiday-themed sketches," Carey said in a statement. "These videos are fun, festive and full of holiday cheer, and I had an absolute blast making them."
"We at Funny Or Die feel strongly that you haven't celebrated the holidays until you've listened (preferably in one sitting) to Merry Christmas, Mariah Carey's landmark album from 1994," Funny or Die president of production Mike Farah said in a statement. "So when given the opportunity to re-team with Mariah, the indisputable Queen of Christmas, on a holiday inspired sketch comedy series, we thought it was the perfect and hilarious addition to our go90 channel."
The series premieres days after MTV announced that the singer's holiday favorite, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is no longer the most streamed song in stores this holiday season getting replaced by The Shins' cover of Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime."
