Drew Carey Hair

April 16, 2011

Okay, so my knowledge of what the current tv shows are is pretty lame.  I’m still working my way through all the Golden Girls episodes.  I’m also fairly oblivious to which celebrities are making headlines, who’s just been eliminated on American Idol and the latest Lady Gaga fashion statement.

I’m not completely out of the loop.  I do glean some info from the general murmur of life—overheard conversions, magazine articles, online news headlines.  And every now and then, when i venture away from the BBC, i stumble on a show that captures my attention and holds it all the way through till the end.

Recent channel surfing led me to a show on the GSN called Drew Carey’s Improv-a-Ganza.  I immediately knew i would love this show as it is reminiscent of, if not almost exactly like, Whose Line Is It Anyway?  I loved that show.  I love improv.  It was one of my fav classes in college.

What was more shocking than finding this show, however, was the hair on Drew Carey’s head.  When did he get hair?  And why does he dye it that weird blonde color? Was it always that color?  Am i just dense?  Has he really always had hair but just kept it short, and why have i never noticed this before?  See for yourself.

The Price Is Right


In any case, he looks much better with hair.  And i do love hair!

I won’t even get into how on this same night Charlie Sheen made a guest appearance and pretty much proved how un-comedic he truly is.  Charlie Sheen, in fact, sucks monkey ass at improvisation.  But this has already been known.  His train wreck is unavoidable.  I think in this case, Drew Carey is the one that’s winning.


Goo Goo for Gaga

Lady Gaga amazes me.  I had the privilege of attending her show in my hometown and i have to say, it far exceeded my expectations.  I knew from a theatrical standpoint, it would be amazing.  And it was.

The concept of her show is the Monster Ball, where anyone can come and be whoever they want to be, waving their freak flag high.  “All the people outside are the real freaks,” Gaga exclaimed between songs.

There were some surprisingly touching moments during her show as she bared not just skin in her ever fashion-ambitious costumes, but insecurities stemming from awkward high school days.  Gaga is so accessible, so real, so normal, really.  And incredibly talented.  Not only did she not lip-synch, but she writes her own lyrics, her own music, even improvising a jazzy, blues beat with her boot heel.

How could you not fall in love with her?  I am completely goo goo for Gaga!
