Melissa McCarthy’s brand of comedy is risky and virtually unseen in the landscape of American media. She’s a woman doing a man’s brand of comedy with a confidence and lack of inhibition that has the potential to become legendary.
I’ve seen praise for the comedian popping up all over the place and I wanted to throw my hat in the ring as well. I’m convinced she will continue to be recognized for her courage. This February I fully expect McCarthy will be nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her turn in Bridesmaids. Anything less would be a travesty. Leave it to the Academy to turn a blind eye to this brewing original talent though. Either way, I wanted to share a link to McCarthy’s recent appearance on Saturday Night Live.
Watch the show if you haven’t seen it already. Not since the early 90’s or maybe even early 80’s can I remember laughing so hard at SNL.
Thank the Lord for creators like McCarthy.
