‘South Park’ Snarksters Bringing ‘Book of Mormon’ to the Stage

Might we expect a joke or two about the missionary position? The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, aka the Mormon Church, is getting the “South Park” treatment once again—but a little differently this time.

Ivy League Musical: Yale Edition

What would-be matriculators at Yale University might think of this lengthy and cringeworthy musical promotional video, cooked up by a group of the Ivy League school’s current undergraduates and recent alumni, is unclear, but we’d like to point out the obvious after enduring a brief run-through of their efforts: Some people have been watching a little too much “Glee.”

‘Jihad The Musical’ Hits Edinburgh Stage

You’ve heard the hype, now see the show—or at least its standout number, if you’re not currently in Edinburgh, Scotland.  Here, we present footage of foolhardy star Sorab Wadia as self-styled megalomaniac Hussein Al Mansour, singing “I Wanna Be Like Osama” in “Jihad The Musical,” playing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival until the last week of August.

George W. Bush, the Musical
