I'm Sending Up Susan Lucci Again!
Just in time for the Oscars, along comes You Like Me, the riotous recreation of celebrity awards acceptance speeches, created by Michael Schulman and Rachel Shukert.
Next Saturday night at Ars Nova--the night before the actual Oscars--you will gag to the procession of performers re-enacting the gratitude, groveling, self-aggrandizement, sincerity, awe, and purposeful forgetting of names as immortalized by various trophy holders in golden boy history.
Last time around, I spoofed Susan Lucci's well-earned tour de force when she finally won the Daytime Emmy for All Children.
I'm doing it again!
After all, just like Susan herself, I know the words.
Here's last time's performance, to refresh your mammaries.
Oh, and if you want to see me do Gloria Gaynor, Donna Summer, and Kiki Dee, come to 54 Below this weekend.
