Broadway (Wicked) and TV (Glee) ablaze Kristin Chenoweth hosted the Friday night aboriginal bright at 7 p.m. with guests Pete Correale, Zabruso, Nate Bargatze, Steve Patterson, Dave Hemstad and Ryan Hamilton. Actuality is a ysis of the bright from our console of Gazette reviewers.
OVERALL: So Howdy Doody lookalike Ryan Hamilton slays the army with his skydiving antics, again host Kristin Chenoweth wraps the appearance with a ardent crooning of Smile — by Chuck Chaplin — and the laff-fest turns into a sob-fest. Few dry eyes in house. Added music than chuckles this night: including Chenoweth, Zabruso and Steve Patterson’s new hit distinct Don’t Be An Arsehole.
HOST: Chenoweth sings like an angel, talks like Betty Boop, is four-foot-eleven and defintely activity to heaven — well, afore Bobby Slayton anyway. Hit addendum so aerial I ane she absurd my gles. But she additionally absurd us up: “Thank-you Quebec for smoker and not bubbler milk” — and thereby bearing women about as tiny as her.
HIGHLIGHTS: Seriously, all Hamilton has to do is airing out on stage, and he has the army convulsing with his aw-shucks, goober perma-grin: “I attending added like a ball club logo than a comedian.” True, dat. Dave Hemstad on two per cent milk: “How abundant stronger is milk than booze that you can aftertaste the added one per cent.” Hmmmm.
LOWLIGHT: Apart from seeing disco-dancing, t-shirt-tossing dude way too generally over the aftermost few years of galas, standup was a little spotty. (“But I am continuing up,” Chenoweth cooed.) Could accept acclimated the berserk activity of Moshe Kasher and Bo Burnham.
OVERALL: It was musical. It was whimsical. It was, at times, hilariously funny … although the abundant account interludes sometimes overshadowed the absolute comedy. But hey, the bright fit its aggressive host.
HOST: First-timer Kristin Chenoweth accepted aboriginal on that “I sing aerial addendum aback I’m nervous.” But there were few falsetto freakouts as the television and date adept joked, teased and swore her way into Montreal’s heart. The admirers admired her; all trash-talking, sweet-singing, four anxiety and 11 inches of her.
HIGHLIGHT: Ryan Hamilton on accident his contacts, his address and his float ascendancy while skydiving (I may or may not accept wet my pants a bit, too). Dave Hemstad on white aliment as a aperture biologic — “It leads to mayonnaise. And two per cent milk.”
LOWLIGHT: The best affair that happened to Steve Patterson was accepting his mic abort as he stepped on stage. It led to some abundant ad-lib (“Maybe there’s addition who works actuality who could advice me?”). Sadly, already he got aback on clue the set was a letdown. Bankers are -holes. So are politicians. We get it.
OVERALL: “I’m a little afraid about that one,” a acquaintance said about this first-time bright host. The admirers did not allotment that fear. And Kristin Chenoweth, so candied and abusive and abuse funny, aloft everybody’s game. Best bright yet. Maybe ever. Even the change music duo, Zabruso, was appealing spectacular.
HOST: Was it her achievement of Popular from her Tony-nominated role in Wicked? Was it the cooter accident story? Was it her adept best of the Charlie Chaplin agreement Smile (“though your affection is aching…”) as a closer? Abuse you Kristin Chenoweth for authoritative me cry afterwards bedlam so hard. Brilliant. Wickedly brilliant.
HIGHLIGHTS: Ryan Hamilton was awfully good, starting with a revisiting of jokes about his outlandishly blessed face and catastrophe with a account of skydiving dventures. But the golfer-turned-comic Dave Hemstad snuck up on me with his on aging, and I enjoyed Nate Bargatze for his disbelief of snake-bite emergency acknowledgment and Pete Correale on the backroom of restaurant aliment baskets.
LOWLIGHT: This is area we usually aces on the agreeable act, which this night was Zabruso, but the army admired them and I kinda did too.
