If you are an avid “Game of Thrones” fan, a casual fan who wants to catch up on the show, or have no idea what I am talking about, the Funny or Die web series “Gay of Thrones” is for you honey! Let’s be honest, “Game of Thrones” can be emotionally brutal, and this week was no exception, but luckily Funny or Die is there for you every Tuesday to bring you some much-needed laughs.
Each week, the hilarious and fabulous real-life hairstylist to the stars, Jonathan Van Ness, asks a new celebrity guest star each week the one question he needs to know, “Did you watch Game of Thrones this week?” No matter what the answer (even if they beg for no spoilers) Van Ness will deliver his over-the-top, impressively succinct, and NSFW recap of the latest “Games of Thrones” episode, complete with his signature character nicknames names. For example, Bran is “Miss Cleo”, Arya is “Baby Kristen Stewart”, Cersei is “Blond Cher”, Daenerys Targaryen is “Christina Aguilera”, and my personal favorite is Ramsay Bolton as “Evil Elijah Wood”.
So, if you missed this week’s episode, want a recap, need a laugh because you are still traumatized over Sansa’s wedding night, or you just want to stop crying every time someone says “hold the door”, check out this week’s recap replete with spot-on pop-culture references, celebrity guests, and all the Westeros realness you can handle.
“Game of Thrones” airs Sundays at 9pm on HBO and “Gay of Thrones” goes live on Funny or Die the following Tuesday.
