The theatrics!

Haven’t you ever wondered what a funeral would be like with a little more drama?

A Black Lady Sketch Show took the idea and ran with it, reinventing a regular funeral as a “Funeral Ball” in a recent skit that sees Bob the Drag Queen acting as the emcee.

The tone abruptly shifts when Bob takes over to pay tribute to the fictionally deceased, Claudatious, and turns it into a ballroom competition filled with theatrics. Each guest coming out for their brief moment to shine gets rated on how well they do in categories such as “insisting on a solo, knowing damn well you can’t sing” and “we thought you died way before him.”

Every new contestant ups the ante, complemented by a snappy narrative from Bob, before they are rated in terms of just how much drama they’ve brought to the Funeral Ball.

Between the killer music, bold aesthetic choices, and flawless narrative structure to keep raising the stakes, you can’t help but ask… can’t all funerals just be like this?

A Black Lady Sketch Show's third season premiered last Friday on HBO Max. Watch the sketch below:
