Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com MAY 27,2005 15 flSIOn BRIAN MOYLAN Thanks to a comedy special, two new reality shows and a great documentary, the tube is heating up just in time for summer. Summer TV sizzles TRADITIONALLY, MEMORIAL DAY weekend is the start of the summer season. Not only does this mean we can all break out the white shoes, but also that all the shows that air during the regular television season are reruns or on hiatus until the falL But this Memorial weekend there is plenty to keep gay TV watchers busy, including a new comedy special, two sexy reality shows and a wonderful documentary "Laugh Whore," the new Showtime special from gay comedian Mario Cantone, will delight fans who miss his fast-talking, bombastic alter ego, Anthony, Charlotte's gay wedding planner on "Sex and the City" From the opening number, Cantone dances his way to center stage and commands the audience's attention for the entire 90 minutes. During that time, he morphs into many personalities, including more than a few familiar divas. Every gay man thinks he can do a good Cher or Liza Minnelli or Judy Garland or Barbra Streisand, but Cantone actually pulls them all off, very well. Not only that, he can do a spot-on Katharine Hepburn, Sammy Davis Jr. and Michael Jackson. The most touching and funny moments come when he talks about his quirky Italian-American family (including a hysterical characterization of his boozy sister). In these moments we see that Cantone isn't just a familiar screaming queen, but a wonderful comic and storyteller. VHl's two new reality shows, "Kept" and "Strip Search," feature lots of male skin. "Kept" features actress, model and former "Mrs. Mick Jagger" Jerry Hall as she picks from 12 men vying to be her kept man (with a six-figure salary) for a year 'Strip Search" is, as the title suggests, the search for seven men to form a new troupe for "The Thunder From Down Under," an Australian-based, Chippendale's-style male revue with shows in Las Vegas and around the world. Both shows are similar to Bravo's "Manhunt: The Search for America's Most Gorgeous Male Model," where the men were dull but hot and tossed aside their shirts whenever possible. On "Kept," the first challenge that the 12 sexpots face is to strip off their clothes, put on Speedos and <f| MORE INFO 'LAUGH WHORE' Showtime/Saturday, May 28, at 8 p.m. ■KEPT' VHl/Sunday, May 29. at 8 pm. •STRIP SEARCH' VHl/Sunday, May 29, at 9 pm. TICKLED PINK' TV Land/Wednesday, June 1. at 10 p.m. Model and actress Jerry Hall (center) uses her quest for a man to get the contestants to show lots of skin in 'Kept,' a new reality show that debuts on VH1 Sunday at 9 p.m. swim across the Thames in winter. Ms. Hall tromps through the show as a gay ideal: rich, beautiful and fabulous, with a horde of beautiful boys doing every ridiculous task she can think up. The off-putting thing about both shows, however, is the participants' insistence on their heterosexuality. On "Kept," Seth, one of the more annoying contestants, says to dashing contest Ricardo, "You have a really nice body You know, not in a gay way" Yeah, yeah, keep talkin'. AFTER THE MINDLESS entertainment of this dynamic duo, catch "Tickled Pink," a new documentary on TV Land, a perfect fit. "Pink" looks at both the history of gay people on the boob tube and how the way we watch has changed. Less worried about the post-"EUen" world, "Pink" would rather talk about things like "Bewitched" with its evil diva Endora (Agnes Moorehead) and fey Uncle Arthur (Paul Lynde). While many shows would only look at the things gay men love about campy classics, this hour-long special gives equal time to lesbians, with a nod to the butch Jo (Nancy McKeon) on "Facts of Life" alongside finicky Dr. Smith (Jonathan Harris) from "Lost in Space" and gay male favorite "Wonder Woman" next to lesbian love "Xena: The Warrior Princess." There also are plenty of gay actors and gay favorites on "Tickled Pink" talking about their contributions to television, like Rue McClanahan from "The Golden Girls," Carson Kressley from "Queer Eye," lesbian comedian Judy Gold, comedy writer Bruce Villanch, "Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry, "Roseanne" costar Sandra Bernhard, "Dynasty's" Diahann Carroll and, lo' and behold, Mario Cantone. Insightful, entertaining and thorough, the show is mostly a primer for straight people about gay culture, but trust me: You'll think it's a hoot — and informative.
