At Least It's Pink is a "trashy little show" starring Bridget Everett, a self-proclaimed "big girl." Michael Patrick King, executive producer of the HBO TV series Sex and the City is given top billing as director and co-writer. Kenny Mellman, who's known as Herb from the show Kiki and Herb, plays the piano. He shares the piano-playing role with Michael-Leon Wooley.
How can one forget what Paul Fussell wrote about fat proles: "flaunting obesity is a prole sign, as if the object were to offer maximum aesthetic offense to the higher classes and thus exact a form of revenge." I think this is the point of At Least It's Pink, which is primarily about Bridget Everett prancing about the stage in her underwear, with her fat stomach hanging out over her panties, singing about how she's a "big girl" and proud of it.
Through Bridget's songs, I learned that everything beta males fear about women is actually true. For example, beta males constantly complain about how women only like "jerks" and not "nice guys." Bridget has a whole song about this, "I Like You," about her first love whom she met at a kegger. Despite the fact that her boyfriend treats her like shit--he calls her "stupid," cheats on her with her best friend, gets her pregnant and refuses to pay for the abortion--she likes him because he's popular. I think it's the best song from the show, and you can hear it at Bridget's MySpace site.
Bridget sings about how much she likes black men. Especially big black men. Because they have bigger penises than white men.
Bridget likes big men because she says that what every woman really wants is for a man to make her feel small. Which is as I suspected. My own research with the National Health Interview Survey revealed that the ideal weight for earning money is 205 lbs, a weight considered "overweight" or even "obese" for most men, but society actually rewards big men.
At Least It's Pink is currently playing at the off-off Broadway venue of Ars Nova, and you'd better see it soon because I don't think this is the kind of show that's going to be around long or move onto bigger theaters. The typical tourist from the midwest is certainly not going to see a show which points out how people from the midwest are fat and low class.
The Ars Nova Theater has general admission seating, but you are advised to avoid the frontmost seats unless you want to inadvertently become part of the show.
Bridget Everett is pictured here, but you have to imagine what she looks like with less clothing.
