Santa Claus is a character, played by Paul F. Tompkins. He is good friends with Ho Ho the Elf (naturally).

His personality is multifaceted, with qualities of angry blowhard and violent meathead interspersed with a jolly, grandfatherly manner. Confirmed catch phrases include "Merry Christmas" and "Look at this candy-ass motherfucker."

Santa's brother is Kole Kringle. According to Kole, although Santa claims to live at the North Pole, he actually lives in Anchorage, Alaska.

He has three times been a host on the podcast With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus, where it is revealed that he hosts the daily North Pod podcast. With three appearances to his/her credit, Ho Ho the Elf is the only repeat guest on the show in over 1000 years. Santa has also appeared in The Thrilling Adventure Hour episode "A Christmas Treat".

It is canonical that Santa cried because he saw a murder.[1]
