If The Boys Upstairs taught me nothing else it’s that there’s a finite number of “bottom” jokes in the world, and I’m pretty sure I heard them all used again in America's Next Top Bottom: Cycle 5! at the Actors’ Playhouse. The Hollywood import, in which the audience votes by ballot on the winner, features seven “ass-piring” contestants who “stretch” themselves in various challenges because they want to “get it in the end.” See what they do there?
All outrageous femmes, the boys get quizzed to test such essential bottom skills as dancing and “minding other people’s business.” Just barely holding it all together is Upright Citizens Brigade alum Pete Zias as legendary ’90s club kid Teddy Teddy and Drew Droege in tragic drag as messy hostess Trina Sugg. Imagine my giddy excitement when I discovered halfway through the show that Droege voices Feathers in the “Planet Unicorn” Web series. Give it up for Feathers!
