Strichy at Wally World

Busy, busy, busy today.

I'm rushing out now to meet my fabulous cousin Kristie - - the one who sent me my dvd boyfriend - - for dinner and then we are off to see THE LIFE. Boho is hosting a special fundraiser tonight for Season of Concern and I can't wait to see the show!

But, this just popped up on YouTube a few days ago. My friend Michael had sent it to me awhile back when it was on another site, but finally I can add it here.

This is a gay sketch comedy troupe doing a scene about Elaine Stritch getting a job as a greeter at Wal-Mart.

If you haven't seen the documentary of the making of the cast recording of COMPANY or if you haven't seen Elaine's one-woman show ELAINE STRITCH AT LIBERTY, I'm not sure if you'll find this funny AT ALL, but to me, this is comic gold.

And speaking of Wal-Mart greeters and comic gold, here is THE FAMILY GUY's take on Dick Cheney if he got a job at the front door of Wally World wearing one of those smocks adorned with a happy face.

Ah, Dick. Is he dead yet?

I think Dick's undead, actually. Maybe a vampire? I could see that.

Stephen Rader said...

yinyang - I know. Everytime I see Mr. Cheney, I hear Gene Wilder from YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN screaming, "It's alive. It's alive. IT'S ALIVE!!!"

I like the concept of the Elaine Stritch thing, actually...very intelligent! It would have been funnier if it had been some skinny GUY in a wig, though...he could do that scratchy old voice to a tee!

Stephen Rader said...

Aaron - I agree 100%!!! And the guy would have had the good sense to draw in some really nasty veins on his legs that would show through those black hose. :)

However, her dead-on screaming of "WRONG!" - - right out of the COMPANY documentary - - is quite genius.

Family Guy rules! American Dad is pretty good too.

I agree with Yinyang, Dick is one of the undead.

Stephen Rader said...

Whim - Yes and yes!!! I can absolutely see Cheney saying to all the customers, "Go fuck yourself. Go fuck yourself. Go fuck yourself."

It's sheer heaven!
