Let’s face it, some things in life are just too funny not to laugh at. And somethings in life (like “Toddlers and Tiaras”) are too appalling not to watch. Now when you combine the premise of “Toddlers and Tiaras” with the Champagnes a “proud pageant family,” you get the perfect combination of both. And laugh you will.
This funny and amusingly offensive mockumentary series centers around the world of children’s beauty pageants (the “Miss Stars Eyes Pagaent” to be precise). The setup goes like this: Michael Champagne (Sam Pancake) is the very proud, if not a little “swishy” father to Annette (Stacy McQueen), our little pageant princess (who happens to be played by an adult). Michale is married to Ribina (Dee Freeman), the professional smoker that supports the family, who is fooling around every chance she gets with Michael’s brother, Ethan (Troy Conrad). Whew.
It’s written and directed by Steve Silverman, who says, “It’s ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ meets ‘Reno 911′ meets everything that’s politically incorrect, but just a whole heck of a lot of fun to say out loud in the world today.”
The laughs (and the series) officially launches today, February 1st. But episodes can be pulled up online all day everyday at their website, www.prettytheseries.com.
Here’s the official trailer to tease you a little…
