    I saw The Jerry Springer Opera in London…it's fucking brilliant!

  16. Elizabeth says – reply to this


    Jerry Springer was at my school the other day

  17. yoyo says – reply to this


    Saw this show in London a couple years ago. Absolutely fricking brilliant. I hope the American version can live up to the hilarity of the one across the pond. I still laugh just thinking about it!

    This opera played in London for a few years. It was even videotaped with David (Starsky & Hutch) Soul as Jerry Springer.

  19. Pbubbles says – reply to this


    ummm…this is not news. it is, however, a great show.

  20. Gina says – reply to this


    its been around for a longgggg time.

  21. from Holland, with Love says – reply to this


    How funny!

  22. beth says – reply to this


    I totally saw this in londo a few years ago, it is f'd up in a good way. there is a song titled chick with a dick

  23. Danielle says – reply to this


    This show is not new. It played in London for a while. It's even shown on PBS and other similar networks before. It's funny for about 30 minutes, and then it just keeps going, and going, and going for like 3 hours. It also takes itself WAY too seriously. It's really more disturbing and eventually annoying than anything else - and I'm a huge opera and musical fan!!

  24. marlena says – reply to this


    Perez….this musical has been in england for a while…it's just coming here now.


  25. dana says – reply to this


    I saw it in London 3.5 years ago. I had been warned it was overly offensive, yet I found rather unoffensive. It was amusing though.

  26. jojo says – reply to this


    I'm so seeing it ASAP. THE BELTER DIVA Kate Pazakis is in it!!! And Harvey Keitel is supposed to be great.

  27. Camsie says – reply to this


    I saw this in London - its amazing - watch out for the reaction from some crazy christians though!!!! Cue Jesus running about in a nappy. Sorry, diaper!

  28. FIX YOUR SITE PEREZ! says – reply to this


    Harvey Keitel is doing THIS?

  29. emmaloulou says – reply to this


    didnt jerry springer the opera premier in the west end about 3 years ago?! i thought this was meant to be the LATEST celebrity gossip! Its already been shown on the BBC in England and angered all the elderly complainers!

  30. Karen says – reply to this


    This is not new. I saw it several years ago in London. It is funny as hell and I would sure want to see it again. With guests like "chick with a dick" and "diaper man" it certainly does not get old and Jerry's "inner valkarie" is a hoot.

  31. JosephNYC says – reply to this


    Re: Danielle
    This has not been shown on PBS in the US as of yet. You are wrong. It was shown on the BBC in the UK.

  32. jen says – reply to this


    Check out the song, "I just wanna dance". The dance version was played in all the gay clubs a couple years ago. So good!!

  33. Aaron says – reply to this


    oh Perez.. the opera based on the TV Show Jerry Springer has been out since '04.. thanks for the late-breaking news..

  34. Robert says – reply to this


    Hate to say this, but this is very old news. It won a slew of major theater awards in Britain in 2003/04 and has since planned (but failed to receive enough money) for two Broadway productions. It's also called an opera even though musical is a far more appropriate descriptor.

  35. Laura says – reply to this


    This isn't new, Perez! I saw clips of this show LAST YEAR!!

    You're slipping, baby ;)

  36. Sunny Sam says – reply to this


    They make musicals out of anything these days. How about one about Michael Jackson's toilet habits?
    Sure it would sell well.

  37. fluffyreeves says – reply to this


    PEREZ, you call yourself a lover of England? I saw this on the West End in 2004! Get with it.

  38. Sonni says – reply to this


    This is old news. Although it would behoove you to look into Alison Jiear form the original cast-she may look frumpy, but bitch can wail.

  39. SNIDE says – reply to this


    I saw the London production too, it's excellent.

    Don't hold your breath waiting for anything Rosie is doing
    Seems like her and long time gal pal/wife will be splitting
    I have a feeling Rosie is going to charge her with stealing $$, like her frind Kathy G did to get out of large alimony

    Rosie in her blog this week talked about how she now has to keep tabs of her $$
    Her brother gave her that advice, but before Kellie was the family banker

    That would be a fun Divorce Court case

    Jerry Springer the opera was on in london 4 years ago, i dunno if it still is. My parents went and saw it.

  42. M says – reply to this


    Heh. Emily Skinner ftw.

  43. olddd newssss says – reply to this


    this news is almost 5 years old perez. It opened on west end in april 2003. I saw it 4 years ago as well as owning the cd. there is also a dvd version too.

    at the theater it was at in seven dials they have toilet paper in the loo with the sheet music on it.

    but i imagine a 2 night new york debut will be very successful. considering that even though it is written by english it is more a staple of american culture.

  44. phattjabba says – reply to this


    What year was this written? The musical is like five years old or more

  45. KT says – reply to this


    Can't believe you haven't seen it already, Prezzle. It is so wrong and so, so funny. xxx

  46. imogen says – reply to this


    what?? this has bene out for aages. it was quite contrevercial here, it aired on the bbc and got quite a few complaints so it will be funi to see how it goes down in america.
    'fucked up the ass with barbed wire' - is a repeated line from one of the songs, great stuff. oh and 'what a cunt, what a cunt, what a fucking fucking cunt', is another, hehe

  47. alex says – reply to this


    yeah…not news. i saw this 4 years ago with david soul. it was supposed to come to the US in 2005 but it wasn't well received. glad to see its coming now, its really good.

  48. melinda says – reply to this


    Oh my God. Only in America.

  49. Andrea says – reply to this


    This is nothing new, The Jerry Springer Opera opened in Minneapolis over 3 months ago.

  50. Jamie says – reply to this


    Yeah Perez the musical has been around for years. I saw it in London in 2004, it was great!

  51. Jessica says – reply to this


    I saw this show in London in 2004 and it was amazing! Absolutely hysterical but also really smart. I have a role of toilet paper I took from the theater's bathroom. It has the lyrics to one of the songs…'Your Jerry Springer Moment.'

  52. notselfhating says – reply to this


    it'd be nice if all us homos didn't make $$$ off this BS about the rest of us.
    perez, the only thing you have going for you is that you is that you have a credit card and could pass for joan rivers' stuntman
