You guys are really in for... something! ;)
Not *quite* as repulsive as Michael Crawford's version, Mr Ball seems to be going for a *puke* slicker version.
He's less pasty, or, I'm not sure what. But then, I find Crawford repulsive in general, whereas Butterball is just not that threatening.
Butterball, LOL! I remember when I saw WIW last time, and cos we were sitting in the box, were actually quite close, just high. I remember making eye contact with Michael Crawford and suddenly feeling very dirty! Or more sorta like, "......ewww." Not so with Herr Quast though, that just made me wanna fold up and implode, but anyway!
Have you ever heard Anthony Warlow do his version of Crawford? It's brilliant.
Icky, icky Crawford. But we will wash him away with thoughts of Quast. ;)
Anthony Warlow doing an actual piss take of Michael Crawford?? Or just when he was in Phantom?
I for a second read that as 'Quast will wash Crawford'.................!
Yes, an actual few bars of complete, out and out mockery of Mr. Crawford. I'll try to dig it up for you.
Wow, I will do my best to never think of that again. Brain bleach!
Omigawsh, is it a good impression?
Oh if only brain bleaches were possible! So many things could do with a good bit of erasing ;D
It's spot-on and totally hysterical. I only wishe he had gone on to sing a few more measures.
I know, selective brain bleach powers would really come in handy.
Why must you terrify me so!?
Just think Jamie, you might make eye contact with that lump of lard - he might make motions/sign language to meet him at the stage door afterwards..... :P
Are you TRYING to give me nightmares! You'll be lucky if you get me into the theatre at this rate! You'll have to stun me first and then carry me in!
Oh I'll lure you into the theatre by saying they're screening the Eastenders omnibus or something ;) Then you'll realise it's just rhe crappy projections ofr this show, and wish it'd been Eastenders ;D
OH MY GOD AND YOU JUST MADE MY MOM CRINGE!!!!!
Isn't it just a nasty repulsive pic? Maybe there should be a warning on it ;)
Mr Ball is in there somewhere under the layers of all that stuff...oh wait, what am I saying, what make-up? ;)
Oh my gawd, please tell me you're joking (though wait, you have a Mr Ball icon there......uh oh.....) ;D
I think perhaps I should get a pic of them both in costume (urghhh) and put em side by side, see who looks the 'best'. MC has that gawdawful curly wig, but the sleek hair here also scares me.... pervy Count Fosco.
Crawford has that horrible pair of knashers that glow white, and knash away at the audience.....quite disturbing :/
Uuuugghhhhh.....I did not need to see this. Actually, I'm glad I did, otherwise I would've shrieked in the theatre!
Yeah, well your shriek would no doubt have been mixed with thefanatical screaming from his fans, he mighta thought you were one of them :P
