On Broadway!

OMG How the hell did I miss Regis and Kelly: On Broadway?! For an entire week they stepped into roles in the show. Watch below as Kelly Rippa takes the SERIOUS route and instead of hamming it up for the studio audience Rosie O'Donnell style as a Shark Girl in West Side Story.

Keep It Campy!

Haven't blogged in forever because I was working on THIS. Camp gold! And make sure you wait around for the song towards the end.

Selling It in CT!

Oh rich. See any familiar faces?

Music and The Knee Slide!

Thanks Dani Spieler for this RICH treat. And thanks belly shirt/jazz pant combo looking very 1998. Watch to the end for moments of greatness including Portia De Rossi and an amazing bamboozly turning ending which drops into some sort of "whore knee drop" that looks like it hurts on many levels.

Chicago is campy

Or that's what Matt says. Check out some of the pictures he sent me while out teaching a master class (which is rich in itself.)
On the street
In some dance studio

Dancing Hookers!

If you're going to make a musical about campy coked out pimps and hos circa 1990 (???) then this is the way to do it. It's the campiest belt fest EVER. I could say this was my first glimpse at camp- back in 1997, this was the first year Rosie O'Donnell hosted the Tonys and they were AMAZING. This number was played over and over on my VCR, though I'd lost much of the rest of the tape when I recorded over it accidentally for a Mary Catherine Gallagher/Aerosmith SNL sketch. 

EVERYTHING about this number is perfect. Talk about bitches...

Friday, March 27, 2009


Talk about beat changes. This is rich.

Did anyone know that Tila Tequila had a song?! I didn't it, nor was I prepared for this video. Style, lyrics, EVERYTHING is unexpected in a jaw-hitting-the-floor kind of way. It's truly shocking.

Part Of Your World!

Campnation is proud to premiere Marla Mindelle's newest theatrical extravaganza "Part of Your World!" Belt/mixing has never sounded better!

Notes on Camp

by Susan Sontag. 
Seriously. A must read.

Ring It!

UMich kids are campy. Here's a RICH example. This is a number from the dance workshop choreographed and performed by a campy group of freshman girls. It's chock full of lady-like hip gyrations and non-stop beveling. I actually love it! A+ ladies!

Every day is a HOLIDAY

Thanks Nina for sending this. The combination of Rosie and Jennifer Holiday AND those striped cell block tango gobos scattered on the floor got me wet. The straight up belting is great, but just wait for the ending. Like, is she serious!? What a BITCH!


So I've been lazy in posting as I've been living in a HUGE loft downtown for the past few days, but I've got some good stuff coming your way over the next few days, including this little video that I'm sure you've at least heard about...
Anything Meredith Viera does is hilarious, as far as I'm concerned. What a rich BITCH!

Monday, March 16, 2009

Battered and bruised...

Dani Spieler is hilarious. I can't stop laughing. Ohmigod.

Sunday, March 15, 2009

God Bless!

God Bless America and thank you AKB for this one. Not since Marla Mindelle has some bitch been able to blend her belt/mix/head voices so seamlessly. Good work!

The Cheeky Song

My friend Richard sent me this amazing treat from the Romanian pop stars, the Cheeky Girls. The first video is their audition (for an early American Idol type show) and the second clip is their resulting video. I'd like to give a big round of applause to the genius that decided to produce these talentless bitches. They're amazingly weird little innocent sluts. Nice work, producer.

Sexy Man Lady

Perez Hilton posted this on twitter and I seriously couldn't believe my eyes. Why would anyone let this man make such a complete fool of himself?! Is this a slutty workout video? Someone explain!

Sandy and Lypsinka!

Sandra Bernhard and Lypsinka from the 1992 HBO special "Sandra After Dark." Brilliance.


S a J. Then read this and look at the pictures.

It's baaaaaaaaack!



Patti LaBelle gives us a lesson in subtlety. Enjoy.

Ana Nogueira is a genius.

She always was and always will be.

Take this song she did brilliantly in The Batterys Down. Then she improvs an acoustic version. 
First, the original, below. Fast forward to :25 for the song.
Now, the acoustic version. 
She's RICH.

Stop it!

Stop doing "embedding disabled by request!" STOP! STOP! STOP!


I'm going to link it no matter what. Stop making it so hard. If your clip is campy and you don't want people to see it, don't put it online.

That being said, ENJOY. And thanks to that rich bitch RISCH for sending me this gem.

Just like a circus...?

SecretTrois, a clan of RICH black chicks dancing to pop songs is back, and better than ever. My favorite moment comes at 1:00, but just watch the whole thing. The choreography...

Great American Soup!

Ann Miller is my hero! Thanks to my youtube friend who sent this!

Tuesday, February 24, 2009


This little bitch was on The Soup this week, but here is the extended version. She's a genius.

Monday, February 16, 2009


If I see this on facebook ONE MORE TIME I am going to throw up. Seriously, it makes me dizzy. It's an ad for a test and you have to say how many mouths and eyes the guy has. Gross.  Suck it Facebook.

Hilarious Child

OMG This MADE MY MORNING. Thank you Dani for bringing me one of what is sure to be the BEST VIDEOS I have seen in 2009.

Cheating Slut

A few nights ago at a local neighborhood gay bar, this shit came on the TV screen. Thank god. This is RICH. Carrie Underwood sings this camptastic song while bitches in leather tear apart fake cars. FOR THE ENTIRE SONG. One of my favorite parts? 1:00 in. Good one, Carrie.

Phone Manners

Ohhhhh this is RICH. I want to hug and slap the FUCK out of this bitch. Thanks Michael for the clip.

I do what I want...

...because it's my birthday.

There's nothing campy about this clip. But it's SO. FUCKING. GOOD.

FF to 2:30.

Pussy Popsicle

This morning Dani's Facebook status was "Dani is never pussy popping again." Obviously that's a lie, but someone responded saying they didn't know what it meant. So I thought I'd do my part and give him the proper definition and demonstration of one of the most satisfying discoveries of the 90's. had a lot to say, but this was my favorite definition:

4. A girl who sticks popsicles in her puss and then eats them.

What? Ughblechewww. That makes me want to kill myself.

Pussy Pop

Beautiful song. Beautiful dance.

Miss America

Brendan sent me this RICH clip and I was instantly sorry I missed this years broadcast. That being said, I'm also thrilled I missed it, as it's a two hour block of time that I'll never regret losing.

Listen to Miss New York sing, and check out the little fact bubbles that pop up during her triumphant performance.

I am OBSESSED with digitally animated musical versions of Barbie movies. This is the latest bitchsical called "Barbie and Diamond Castle"....

Thanks MATTEL, for making a musical about a diamond castle. Bring it to Broadway, NOW.

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Long time...

Wow it's been a while since I've posted. I've been dog sitting at my friend's house and have taken a mini break from the computer. Looks like I didn't miss much. Are we really so starved for theatre news that has to post pictures of the West Side Story LOAD OUT from the run in D.C.?!?!!?!?!? Thanks Broadwayworld. You're worthless.
One thing I did stumble across is, where you can do things like this:
And check out this stoned Ariel Jake sent me:
That's all for now. Stay campy!

Friday, January 23, 2009


If you haven't heard, Patti Lupone stopped the final Saturday night performance of Gypsy because someone was taking a picture. Ridiculous.

My friend Randy is a genius and used the bootleg to create this. Nice fucking work!

Tuesday, January 20, 2009


Thank you Matt Murphy for this clip and THANK YOU PATTI LUPONE for wringing one more ridiculous moment out of the wet washcloth that was GYPSY.

Sunday, January 18, 2009


Matt sent me this RICH card. Camp gold.
Click here to check it out.

Saturday, January 17, 2009


Get it Babs! Fast forward to 2:30 and prepare for the most ridiculous belting ever.

Thursday, January 15, 2009

I Go To RIO!

Did anyone else get the chance to see "The Boy from Oz" on Broadway? I did. It's RICH. This is the closing number. It begins with some campography in white costumes after which Hugh Jackman descends from the top of the stage on a piano staircase and mambos with Liza Minelli, Judy Garland, and chorus boys with pineapples on their heads. RIDICULOUS.

Tuesday, January 13, 2009


I was looking at pictures from the final performance of Gypsy (????) and this was just below the final picture. RICH!

Monday, January 12, 2009


My favorite girl is the JEWEL COLLECTION bitch. She's worth this entire video! Thank you Brendan!

What's campier than shameless high belting?

Doing it while your ass is planted on a bench. Keep up the good work, women of the world. (Violet: Meggie Cansler, Daisy: Katie Klaus)

An excerpt...

...from Patti Lupone's blog:

November 2004

"We did have one sour moment at Bucca da Beppo. The hostess was a controlling condescending ignorant ex-cheerleader, punishing us for being late by 15 minutes and not seating us for half an hour while our table sat there empty. I complained bitterly. So don't bother with the Bucca da Beppo in Minneapolis.", what?! Can you imagine being THAT hostess? At THAT Bucca di (it's spelled with an i, btw) Beppo?




Click here. Obviously.

Fried Chicken!

Thanks Adam!


Taking a cue from that late nineties gem "crazy/beautiful", my new favorite thing is to take two words that don't belong together and make them a totally acceptable title. sexy/emaciated. righteous/button nosed. poopstain/plastic soul.

Since this girl is actually hilarious but I feel kind of bad posting this, she's adorable/hilarious. Enjoy (Thanks Marla for this one)

Monday, January 5, 2009


For this clip. I still love Hillary too. Every little thing about her. We're gonna make it after all!

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Oh. Mi. God.

Fun and Flirty!

This almost took away my terrible New Years hangover. Thank you Matt!
