Today’s Musing: Gender-Bending Musical Comedy

February 9, 2010

I’m several days late in posting this, but it’s completely worth it anyway.  It matters not that the “Late Night Wars 2” is over…if you still haven’t read my top 10 reasons to join Team Craig and made the change (are you really watching Jimmy Fallon?!), then you’re missing out on some truly subversive late-night comedy.

The best thing about this take on “Addicted to Love” isn’t how hilarious it is; it’s how long it goes on.  You know, at first, you’re laughing and laughing so much that you don’t take in the full scene.  But after about a minute or so, you start to realize exactly how rebellious this is – where else on TV do you see men dressed as women at length as an act (as opposed to say, SNL, where the point of it is to absurdly portray women badly for constant laughs), let alone the host of a late-night talk show.  Craig and his team are totally fearless and that is awesome.

If you’re new to the site, check out my other Craig posts, and if you’re a regular, enjoy!  Happy Tuesday.
