Watch The Big Gay Sketch Show
- 3 Seasons
The Big Gay Sketch Show is a sketch TV show that appeared on the LOGO channel from 2006 to 2010. Like Saturday Night Live, it had traditional and music-based sketches, pop culture parodies and recurring characters. Unlike Saturday Night Live, these sketches were made from a gay, lesbian and bisexual point of view. This show was developed by Rosie O'Donnell and directed by Amanda Bearse. Rosie O'Donnell did appear herself on the show. Rosie O'Donnell was not the only person that appeared on the show as themselves. Chaz Bono, Elaine Stritch, Rob Bowman, Amanda Bearse, Sharon Osbourne and Colman Domingo all appeared as themselves on the show. This show's cast was deemed to be full of up-and-coming comics. Kate McKinnon did become a cast member of Saturday Night Live. In 2009, LOGO searched for a new cast member by having an online talent search titled "The Big Gay Casting Competition." People would upload videos to logoonline.com and website visitors would proceed to vote on the videos. The winner was Will Heuser who had appeared on Big Brother 14 as a cast member. He appeared on one show as an extra, not a cast member as promised.
