Brian's Bombshell

This is one of my favorites. Another of the 5 that truly show the Kids.
It's nearly a monologue. And in truth, no one does a monologue better than Mr. Scott Thompson. Not to say I don't love the other guys, but Scott has a special sparkle on his own. He knows he has the undivided attention of the audience and he uses it.

I know this was recently posted, but I can't leave it out. It's from the pilot, like Reg and it's a piece they did on stage frequently. Another thing Brian's Bombshell and Reg have in common, they both fell flat in bigger venues they performed at. Brian's Bombshell was performed in NYC at the height of the AIDS epidemic, and the boys had included a character called, The AIDS fairy, played by Kevin. It didn't go well.
