“Big Gay Sketch Show” Lovingly Shades “RuPaul’s Drag Race”: WATCH

We loved Big Gay Sketch Showthe out-and-proud sketch series that birthed such gems as the hottie UPS guy, Russian assassin Svetlana and the gay werewolf. But our favorite skit of all time has to be BGSS’s hilarious parody of the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. With loving digs at the season’s small budget, wacky judges and supernova lighting, it’s the best kind of compliment to our favorite show. And with RPDR: The Lost Season returning to Logo on Monday, September 30, this seemed like the perfect time to watch the sketch again.

Bonus trivia: That’s Tony-nominated actor Colman Domingo (The Scottsboro Boys) as Ru and SNL’s Kate McKinnon as Melanie Griffith.
