THE MARIAH NETWORK
Mariah linked up with Funny or Die to head up Mariah's Holiday Sketchtacular, a seven-episode series tracking Carey preparing for the holidays.
The series, shot in New York, features Carey preparing for the holidays with the help of FOD regular Bryan Safi, who teams with her for a Christmas cooking show and helps her audition Santa Clauses for her concert series. Guest stars include Jordan Klepper (The Daily Show) and Nick Swardson (The Ridiculous 6).
"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," FOD 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 launched December 15, 2015 on Verizon's go90 video app.

Mariah Carey's Managers Take Over
Mariah Carey needs a Santa Claus for her Christmas show, but every Santa who walks through the door to audition seems to have more attitude, more agenda and more bare skin than your typical Kris Kringle. Will Mariah Carey have to compromise her Christmas wishes this year?

Mariah Carey reads a very special version of the classic poem Twas The Night Before Christmas to some lucky children... with her own unique Mariah Carey spin on it.
Santa Auditions with Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey wants Christmas to be perfect and it's up to her two managers to make it happen. Luckily for them, they're not shy of confidence, but when it comes to tact, grace and common sense? Well, we'll let you be the judge of that!
Mariah Carey's Animal Choir
Mariah attempts to conduct a choir of animals through a rendition of Jingle Bells, but they just can't seem to get it right. The cow keeps zoning out, the birds want solos and the bear is so hungry that he... well, you'll have to watch to find out!
