Critic’s Notebook: How ‘Chappelle’s Show’ and ‘The Boondocks’ Kept Us Laughing at R. Kelly

In the early 2000s, it was easier to mock the singer than wrestle with his alleged crimes. The documentary “Surviving R. Kelly” makes that difficult now.

Couple Can’t Stop Laughing As They Tell Story Of Epic OB-GYN Mishap

As parents to three children currently expecting their fourth, Chris and Rachel McQueen are no strangers to OB-GYN visits. But one recent experience was a real first for them.

On Jan. 3, the Kentucky couple posted a hilarious video after a mishap at the doctor’s office. In the video, they can barely stop laughing as they explain what happened at the end of their latest ultrasound appointment.

According to Rachel, “everything was going great” until the doctor started to examine her and accidentally inserted hand sanitizer instead of lubricating gel inside her. She asked her husband to imitate her reaction in the video. 

“Whoa! Whoa! Whatever you put in there, that’s hot! You got to go!” Chris said in his impersonation. As they told the story, the couple burst into uncontrollable laughter. “He grabbed the wrong bottle!” Rachel exclaimed. “Worst experience of my entire life.” 

Still as the video shows, they were clearly in good spirits about the mishap. “If you have a story that tops that one, let us know,” Rachel said. They also posted a Facebook status that day noting they were “feeling clean.”

The McQueens’ video was viewed over 5 million times. They told The Huffington Post they did not expect to go viral. “We didn’t see it coming at all,” Rachel said, adding, “But the number of views continued to rise, and you should have seen the celebration dance when we reached our first million!”

Rachel and Chris are parents to three children, ages 1, 3 and 4, and their fourth child is due Jan. 24. They have a YouTube channel called MotherHood Madness, where they post funny musings about the everyday adventures of raising kids. 

The couple have declined to share the name of the doctor or his practice, noting that they love their OB-GYN and still plan to have him deliver their baby.

Rachel said no harm was done other than the burning sensation and a little bit of dryness afterward. “There was never any concern about the hand sanitizer,” she said. “With no side effects a week later, all was well.”

Rachel told HuffPost she and Chris hope people get “incredible joy” watching their video. “We were literally laughing from ultrasound room to video!” she said. “We have had so much good feedback and are bringing laughter around the world!”

Daniel Radcliffe Can’t Stop Laughing During ‘Water War’ With Jimmy Fallon

Hopefully Harry Potter brought his gillyweed.

“Victor Frankenstein” star Daniel Radcliffe took on Jimmy Fallon in a “Water War” on Tuesday, and he just couldn’t keep it together. Radcliffe started laughing almost immediately, and once he got to dump water on Fallon, he pretty much didn’t stop. 

Radcliffe played a wizard for most of his childhood, so he’s used to doing pretty amazing things. Once he shocked people by pretending he was the receptionist at Nylon magazine, and during a previous visit on “The Tonight Show,” he expertly rapped the “Alphabet Aerobics.” But that stuff aside, seeing Harry Potter apparently get hit by a giggling charm is just as magical as anything.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

Keep ’em Laughing, and Laughing, and Laughing: One Man, Two Guvnors at Berkeley Repertory Theatre

I watched the Tony Awards on TV for the same reason I always do: the performances. Every year seems to bring fewer awards and more entertainment–yes, sometimes bombastic snippets from overblown musicals but sometimes real gems. I still haven’t seen anything to top James Corden‘s amazing one-man two-person fight from One Man, Two Guvnors, for which he won a Tony three years ago. Francis Henshall is a character who will go down in theater history, I predict, as memorable a creation as Hamlet or Willy Loman, except, you know, funny. Really, really funny.

It was hard to think anyone could match Corden–who now, speaking of TV, hosts The Late, Late Show–as Henshall. And yet, Dan Donohue, aided by a splendid cast, is doing just that in the production of One Man, Two Guvnors (jointly produced with Orange County’s South Coast Repertory) at Berkeley Repertory Theatre.

Berkeley Rep has won its own Tony–the regional theater award, in 1997–and its longtime artistic director, Tony Taccone, is a big reason Sarah Jones‘ terrific solo show Bridge & Tunnel, which she workshopped with Taccone at Berkeley Rep in 2005, won a special Tony Award the following year. But a great artistic director lets us see the work of other directors, too. So next season, he’ll present one of this year’s Tony best-play nominees, the provocative Disgraced, as directed by Kimberly Senior, who took the play from Chicago to London to Broadway. We’ll get another of Tony-winning director Mary Zimmerman‘s fanciful, visually thrilling adaptations of classic tales, Treasure Island.

The season will open in August with the world premiere of Amélie, a musical directed by Pam MacKinnon, who won her Tony for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. (If that doesn’t illustrate a diverse skill set, I don’t know what does.) And yep, we can thank yet another fine director, David Ivers, for the laugh-a-minute production now at Berkeley Rep.

This is a play that calls for beyond-excellent physical skills, outlandish verbal dexterity, even a little musical ability. In his efforts to not only cater to two employers but keep them unaware of one another, Francis Henshall offers one of the hardest-working roles in show business. He’s the heart of the show, whether literally serving his two masters–lunch, in their separate rooms, while taking more and more food for himself–wooing a woman, trying to budge a heavy trunk, or nimbly improvising with audience members. I hope Donohue doesn’t get his own talk show, because I really want to see him here again!

And yet the show would be nothing without formidable planets revolving around his blazing sun. Local treasures Ron Campbell and Danny Scheie are hilarious as the waiters, as are Robert Sicular as Charlie Clench and Sarah Moser as Pauline, his dim but lovable daughter, whom two men are fighting over, sort of. One of the men (Helen Sadler) is actually in disguise as her brother, accidentally killed by her rich-twit lover (William Connell). The other is her true love, Alan (Brad Culver).

British playwright Richard Bean‘s update of The Servant of Two Masters, Carlo Goldoni‘s commedia dell’arte masterwork, moves the action from 1740s Venice to Brighton Beach in 1963–hence, the lively four-man skiffle band that entertains before the play begins and during set changes, occasionally joined by a cast member. If the action didn’t proceed at such a headlong pace, you might start to wonder what surprise the next curtain would bring. In sparkles and wigs, Moser, Sadler, and Claire Warden (Dolly, Henshall’s romantic quest) form a Supremes-like trio. John-David Keller, who plays Alan’s lawyer father, sings a rousing, completely out-of-character song. Culver joins the band playing percussion on his chest, and Connell performs on air horns.

Add to this an endless variety of humor–from lame to clever, slapstick to topical satire, quick quips to audience participation…. If you think you don’t like farce, think again. Even when you see it coming, you can’t help laughing every time Campbell falls down the stairs, for instance. In fact, you leave the theater weak with laughter, and filled with admiration.

Through June 28, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, 2025 Addison St., Berkeley, 510.647.2949, berkeleyrep.org.
