Michael Bolton’s Big Sexy Valentine’s Day Special
I have told several friends that they should watch Michael Bolton’s Big Sexy Valentine’s Day Special, and all of them have assumed I was joking. This is presumably because Netflix makes no mention that the special is a work of satire, created by the team at Comedy Bang! Bang! and starring a slew of surreal humor’s top purveyors. Sarah Silverman, Fred Armisen, Andy Richter, Eric André, Bob Saget and Maya Rudolph are just a few of the comics featured in this unorthodox spoof. The result is an anticomedy showdown that smacks of the more ridiculous programs on Adult Swim. It has truly inspired moments of humor, and even when it’s not funny, it’s weird and obscene enough to be charming. Bolton’s wooden mannerisms may be intentional or the result of poor acting, but he manages to blend the goofiness together perfectly. Not your parents’ holiday special, but it’s really worth watching, even if you don’t love Michael Bolton. Who am I kidding? Everyone loves Michael Bolton.
