Not-So-Gentle Viewer: Sassy Gay Friend: Hamlet (2010)


Despite the fact that this video shamelessly promotes stereotypes of "sassy" gay men, I can't help but wish somebody had told Ophelia the things he does. "There is something rotten in Denmark, and it's [Hamlet's] piss-poor attitude!"  (By the way, how pathetic is it that I've only just now figured out how to embed youtube videos?)

I saw that sketch at Second City last August! There was another one with Juliet when she finds Romeo dead and it about to stab herself. He stops her and they celebrate her new-found "slut" status by going shopping.

I saw that one as well. Both of them crack me up, despite the cliched flamboyant gay man.

Love, Love, Love Second City!!! The show they're running now is called "The Taming of the Flu" and my absolute favorite line was "a little piece of my soul dies every time I hear a grown man say the word 'Twitter'" (Adrian and his girlfriend are visiting over their spring break and I'm taking them the 50 year anniversary "Best of" show on Monday for her birthday.)

That's classic! I'll keep an eye out on youtube for it, since I think that's the best I'm going to get. :)
