Product Description

Logo’s The Big Gay Sketch Show is back with another season of groundbreaking sketch comedy series! The eight episodes feature a combination of traditional and music-based sketches, pop culture parodies and recurring characters, all from a unique LGBT perspective.

Amazon.com

Sketch comedy--all too often dominated by frat-boy humor--gets "queer-eyed" on Logo's The Big Gay Sketch Show. The eight episodes of the second season feature much of what you'd expect: Over-the-top but affectionate impersonations of gay icons like Liza Minnelli and Elaine Stritch; sketches that do little but emphasize the muscular physique of hunky cast member Paolo Andino; and pop-culture parodies in which the characters are now gay lovers (for example, Lucy Ricardo and Ethel Mertz). The show suffers from the same weaknesses as straight comedy shows, like sketches that only have one joke and don't know when to end, woefully dated targets trotted out as if no one had ever made fun of them before (really, how many jokes about bears do we really need?), and recurring characters who could hardly carry one scene to begin with. But at its best, the show veers into surreal goofiness (Maya Angelou reading Craig's List personals as poetry) and bald but still welcome political digs, as well as moments of startling bad taste (a support group for May-December romances that concludes with mass projectile vomiting) that, if nothing else, will linger in your memory.

Surprisingly, the best material can be found in the bonus features. A satire about Logo deciding to turn the show straight is both topical and multilayered; sketches about a girl-scout troop leader freaking out when she gets lost and fag hags show a hint of character dimension; and "behind the scenes" footage mocking Logo itself is funnier than anything that was actually broadcast. Also, cast member Julie Goldman conducts a couple of refreshingly personable interviews with two of the show's other performers, Kate McKinnon and Nicole Paone. The Big Gay Sketch Show doesn't reinvent sketch comedy, but it does offer a super-powered Liza crying out, "There's a pain in my new hip--that means a homosexual is in trouble!" --Bret Fetzer

The second season really found its way compared to the first. The charactors had "matured" (some of them much like old cheese). The sketches were funnier although there were some that fell flat. I had the urge to listen to Grandma Bell on my earbuds even in my own house. In fact, my neighbor moved away a week after I played that sketch and I'm nervous that the two are related.
I laughed so hard at the Paula Dean and Jenny Craig sketches that I was afraid I would pass out and be found face down on the living room carpet with the other end pointed to the heavens. All I can say is, "Sir! Take my money. This DVD is worth any price!"

The "Dynasty" sketch and the "May-December Romance" sketch are my favorites. Julie Goldman is a true gift, especially as Natalie in the "Facts of Life" and "Super Liza" sketchs. Great fun. Maya Angelou never looked so good. There are a few misteps, but for the most part it is very funny, even the closing comments by Rosie O'Donnell and Chastiy Bono are fun. The only reason i gave it 4 out of 5 was there should have been more bonus footage, especially bloopers out outakes.

I was so happy when The Big Gay Sketch Show came out on DVD, when the second season became available I had to have it. Even though some of the cast has changed it is still jammed with funny skits and special guest surprises. When's season 3 coming out?

Simply brilliant. I'm in stitches every episode, over and over. As another review said - you can literally watch these sketches again and again and it never gets old. OMG Grandma Bell. Its worth 15 bucks just for her. The whole cast is spectacular and the skits are spot on (whether you want to admit it or not). And of course, what a wonderful addition to gay television. For the people by the people, you know?

Logo is INSANE for not airing this show more often. Indeed it is the homo version of SNL - when SNL was GOOD.

And if I am correct, they rely on DVD quota sales in order to be signed onto the next season, so pay [...] AND the chance to watch another season next year. What a steal!!

The first season was better. Unfortunately, this one seems to have been taken over by a gang of 12 year old boy writers. If you like crude, gross humor that involves bodily functions, then this is ideal for you. However, if you prefer intellectual, clever comedy, then you're not going to like this. The cast seems to be having a good time, but I found these episodes almost unwatchable. The extras, including interviews with cast members, are slightly interesting, but it seems padded.

I'd forgotten some of the skits. Is the third season going to be available soon? Wish there'd be more, though.

I SO wish there were more seasons to this show! Marvelous! I tried to watch one episode at a time but was always compelled to watch 3 or 4.
