    I’m not a fan of his, but I really wouldn’t call this a gay minstrel show. He’s a gay comic, and his current shtick is talking to people on the street about celebrities, and he even has his own show doing so. If the object of his excitement where not a celebrity popular with gays, I don’t think you would feel the same way. In his work that I’ve seen, and even in this segment, there isn’t anything that you could point to and say “see, he’s acting really extra super gay so people can laugh at the LGBT community”. The premise of this segment was that he’s a huge, over the top, Madonna fan— not that he’s gay. I’ve seen straight guys act this over the top at a lot of events, they just we’re working for Conan O’Brien at the time, or sober.
