Comedian Joe Pera brings his comedic bit with a quirky “how-to” on choosing the perfect Christmas tree.

Fraser Fir, Douglas Fir, White Spruce, the list goes on and on. How do we pick the perfect Christmas tree?

"I guess a good place to start is just thinking about what you want in a Christmas tree.

Do you want sturdy branches for a homemade ornament or are you just going to go with nice white lights and keep it simple?
Do you want one that smells particularly good or are you allergic to a tree that smells at all?

Do you want a tree that will last the whole holiday season that you can have up right after Thanksgiving or do you want one to cut down the week before and then that's all you need?

Do you want a tree that is a shape that's angular and kind of traditional or do you want a shape that is more rounded?"

So what are you looking for personally?

"I want one that I can hang some homemade ornaments on and that will last as long as possible, maybe even halfway through January."

So I understand that you have a new TV special coming up, do you want to tell me about that?

"Sure, it is called Joe Pera Helps You Find the Perfect Christmas Tree and hopefully by watching the audience will be able to go out the next day and know exactly what they are looking for."

So when can we view it and where can we view it?

"Friday at midnight on Adult Swim and adultswim.com shortly after that."
