Tiffany Reviews Night of 100 Stars
Have you ever watched a comedy, whether on television or live? If so, you probably either laughed at the jokes, or just sat there thinking "How lame can this get?" Comedy is supposed to be funny, and you want it to be. And Night of 100 Stars was just that.
Night of 100 Stars took place in a college. The theatre was very simple, but the performance, by three very talented interpreters, made up for it . They all did exceptionally well, especially with the pianist and the person on bass.
The first act, performed by a woman who is on The View, was the most hilarious (at least I think so), particularly when she interpreted a French opera diva singing "You feel up my senses" instead of "You fill up my senses," finishing with "So come feel me up again". Another funny thing that she did was pretend she was different people on television, including an Arkansas tourist in New York City. She was even doing the accent, saying things like "Look at how big these skyscrapers are." But the funniest act of all was when she said she was Italian and the pianist started to play the theme from The Godfather. This cracked me up, but all of a sudden she started to sing a song about food. "Pasta, salami, feta cheesie..and a pizza to gooooooooo." She finished off her act with the song and ran off stage. As everyone continued to laugh and cheer the next person was introduced to go on stage.
Unfortunately, I didn't find the second act funny at all. Some people might say a guy dressing up like a famous woman is the funniest thing in the world, while others, like me, think it's simply ridiculous. This second act was performed by a guy named Kevin (last name unkown). The whole entire time he was impersonating a famous actress named Carolyn (last name unkown), and to tell you the truth he wasn't very good at it because it was obvious it wasn't the real Carolyn. He acted out parts of her childhood and how she became famous, while singing (awfully) "Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friend." The only thing that he did not act out as part of Carolyn's childhood is when she called someone out from the audience. She happened to call out an elderly man to act out a skit with her. The skit was about the man being her father and that Carolyn was going away to be a famous star. The only funny thing about this was that the elderly man had a business selling nuts. Kevin¹s act was so lame that the only funny thing was a guy who sells nuts!
The third and final act was performed by the person everyone came to the show for: the one and only Marilyn Michaels. She delivered lots of laughs with everything she did, except for when she was trying to promote her album by singing some songs from it. This, by the way, was lovely. The two funniest things, I think, were when she acted out a skit from Wizard of Oz. As Dorothy, she became annoyed at the good witch, simply because her laugh was getting on her nerves. And when the Good Witch told her she could go home by just tapping her shoes she responded "So you made me waste all this time and risk my life when I could have just tapped my shoes?" The second thing that was funny is when she mentioned "Look at my legs. One is Christmas and the other one is Easter. Why don¹t you come and visit me between the holidays." The rest of the time she just took ideas from the audience and impersonated them, for example Barbara Streisand was one of them and she performed the song "People."
Overall, the show made me laugh. It was mostly about impersonations and somewhat about relationships, whether it was a love relationship or a family one. The nice thing was that it was Mother's Day and it was the perfect thing to put a smile on your darling mom's face. So whether or not comedy is your thing -- or even something you don't care about -- it's always nice to put a smile on someone¹s face.
