Last night, five whole days after SantaCon blew through New York City, the The Daily Show decided to air a quick treatment of the event. As you would imagine, the segment exposes the shitshow that happens each year. Most interesting, though, is watching the footage after learning about Costume Jim Glaser and his ties to both the annual pub crawl and his former connection to FIGMENT NYC (he sat on the board of directors, but just resigned).
Costume Jim decided not to identify himself for the masses on The Daily Show, but that’s him beneath the Santa regalia. Standing next to recently-hired civil rights attorney Norman Siegel and even interviewed by correspondent Jordan Klepper.
As a postscript, the LES Dwellers should pat themselves on the back, as their “SantaCon Free Zone” flyer was featured prominently in the shot.
