Colin O’Leary‘s past Car Ride Showtunes have a cult following on YouTube, The WOW Report and with RuPaul’s DragCon attendees.
He and I have stayed in touch since my first posts of his genius videos and he just sent me his latest effort. Perfect timing for multiple quarantine viewings and shares.
Yes, he’s the star, but his mother is always best supporting actress/walk-on/ deadpan co-star and her driving duties have been switched for household chores. Her expressionless performance practically steals every over-the-top scene from her talented, manic son.
This one has a witchy/Wizard of Oz-ish theme with some baseball diamond Liza, dining table Judy, rooftop concert Babs and neon Speedo street Gaga for some surprise diva drama. (There’s even shopping cart Baby Yoda!)
He asked me…
“Do you think 6 minutes is too long…?”
If anything it’s too short. Along with title “The O’Leary Show Must Go On” this saying also applies;
“Always leave ’em wanting more.”
