In Search of the LOL, Part 3: The VGL Gay Boys

Last night, during a routine visit up to Columbia, my good friend/partner-in-queer-crime Zach introduced me to the wonder that is the VGL Gay Boys.  From Vulture:

In these semi-scripted video sketches, Cole Escola usually plays the funny guy (or gal—Bernadette Peters, say) to Jeffrey Self’s “straight” man, wrapping up sketches with intimations of murder—he says, in true improv-class form, that “it ups the stakes.”

Um, how have I not seen these before last night?

My personal favorite:

“And he runs into the burglars from the first one, and they chase after him…”

“Yes, and they just murder him.  They murder that poor boy.”

  1. I also in the last week found out about these guys. I thought the same thing, how could I have missed this?
