She definitely is unique...
Alright, well this was my first introduction to the character that is Bob the Drag Queen. So I had very little expectations to the show and I had no idea what I was getting myself into here when I sat down to watch "Bob the Drag Queen: Suspiciously Large Woman".
I will say that she actually has a very vibrant and likable on-stage presence, and it is hard not to get swept up by the charisma and the energy that she exudes. She is everywhere at once, yet still managing to keep a focal point and continue on.
The jokes, however, well most of them actually, were just not really within my range of humor. That, or perhaps I just didn't get some parts of it, because I have no clue about the drag scene or about being a gay person in USA. She managed to get some smirks from me here and there throughout the show, but I wasn't actually laughing. So on that account, then this show was a little bit of a swing and a miss in contrast to my sense of humor.
I do, however, have a big sense of admiration for her and for her ability to stand out in the spotlight and not be ashamed of who and what she is. And I do think it is great that there is someone like her in the comedy scene, because she is a fresh breath of air.
Was I spurred on to go watch more of her material? Well, I will not actively be seeking it out. But if I get the chance, and happen to have come across it, then I certainly will. Perhaps there is much more to her than what she managed (or didn't manage, in regards to my sense of humor) to accomplish in "Bob the Drag Queen: Suspiciously Large Woman".
