OMFG WATCH IT!: RAMBO, But Gay: The Musical. (They had me at “discharge”)

RAMBO, But Gay  The Musical

Sure there’s blood in guts and a super soapy shower scene in this version of Rambo from Michael Serrato (former cast member  of Logo’s Big Gay Sketch Show) .and Mark Byers, but in this musical version the audience is asked to reexamine what it is to be a man and what it is to be manly. This post DOMA tinkering of war veteran, John Rambo is hopefully just the first exploration of “Manly, But Gay” that Serrato and Byers get to tell.

The Nerdist has a review:

From one of the brilliantly twisted minds that brought you Neil’s Puppet Dreams comes the retelling of Rambo you never knew you needed, complete with three musical numbers and more homoerotic subtext than a Whitesnake music video: Michael Serrato’s Rambo…But Gay. Okay, maybe subtext is a generous term, but as Serrato explains in the video, he wanted to take something that society has branded to be hypermasculine and hyper-heterosexual and give it a gay retelling. The result is a campy, over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek take on Rambo’s bloody revenge saga, but with way better choreography and wardrobe.

Absolutely fucking brilliantly hysterical, or hysterically brilliant. I can’t decide.

This is all kinds of fabuloucity. They had me at “discharge”.


Joan Rivers LOVES The Gays and The Nerdist Chris Hardwick Wishes He Was One! (So Do We Chris)

When asked about her early days in showbiz recently on The Nerdist podcast hosted by super cute SuperNerd actor/comedienne Chris Hardwick, Joan Rivers praised her gay audience to high heavens saying:

“I would run down the street and do a single at a place called The Duplex [with] Woody Allen, Barbara Streisand and a guy  named Barry Dennen… all on the same bill, all written in pencil ’cause they  didn’t know how long you were gonna stay.

A lot of gay boys came in. Gay men were the first ones that laughed… God  bless gay audiences. [They’re] the most loyal to a woman. You know, they still  come around. God bless them.”

Hardwick echoed her sentiments about gay men once saying :“I wish I was cool enough to be gay,” in response to a question about his own sexuality. (Episode no. 246, starting about 14:30.)

We wish you were gay too Chris.  Because believe me, we gaygeeks would  be all over your cute little Nerdist ass like a pristine copy of Action Comics Number 1 in which Superman was debuted. 

And  we wouldn’t be worrying about creasing or staining pages thats for sure!
