“Big Gay Sketch Show” Outs Self, Alum
Written by Bwog Staff
Those of you who were around last year may remember Kate Berthold C’06. The three-time V-Show star, Tea Party improv cast member, writer and performer of the one-woman “Samantha Show” as her senior thesis, B&W Campus Character and part of the legendary Prangstgrüp lecture musical has moved on to her next role in life: starring in Logo’s big new gay-themed sketch comedy show, titled, uh, “Big Gay Sketch Show“.
A Bwog staffer caught up with Kate to ask about her thoughts on the premiere. “I really hope that a lot of people watch it. If it goes well enough, maybe I can quit my telemarketing job one day,” she said, adding that “the funny thing is that when this show premiers, I’ll be out to every human being in America except my Grandfather. AWKward…” If there’s one thing she can count on her fellow Columbians supporting, it’s awkwardness. Tune in to the aforementioned cable channel tonight at 10 to catch the first show, and check out this article on Kate from Columbia College Today and this one from the NYT on the show for more.
