If you think it's "too gay"...
31 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

...you're simply not paying attention. Yes, many of the sketches center around LGBT topics, which makes perfect sense given that it's the Big GAY Sketch Show airing on a gay television network. But for every two or three sketches that revolve around an LGBT character or situation there is one that has nothing to do with sexuality. Rachael Ray trying to survive on $40 a day in New York, parodies of Star Jones, a raw food cooking show, Barbara Bush on QVC, a "Chicago style" exercise class and so on. And even if the show were 100% gay humor, so what? It's not like there's some mad overflow of gay sketch comedy shows on the air that this is some copycat show.

The show can be hit-and-miss, but when it hits it hits solidly. The Fitzwilliam sketches are consistently hilarious as are the Chicago style sketches, the Maya Angelou reads from craigslist bits, the sitcom parodies and so on. The cast is very talented and routinely deliver good performances. Definitely worth watching more than once.
