Bravo’s LOLwork: “Live in 3…2…1”

Bravo’s LOLwork demonstrated last night why it’s superior to other reality shows – it has a heart. Will Sharick found out that his cat, Winston, needed a nine thousand dollar hip replacement surgery. In response, the Cheezburgers rallied and put together a telethon to raise money to help Will. It was inspiring to see Will’s coworkers get behind him and to recognize, not ridicule, how much his cat means to him. 

 The team began with “audishuns” for talent, and it brought out an interesting array of characters. One woman had trained her cat to give her kisses by licking her lips. I love cats, but even I would draw the line with that one. Ali talked with a man who had taught his pet bird to play dead and meow like a cat, which was a pretty cool trick.

Forest took on the production side and had to direct the two cameramen, who had a lengthy debate about who was “wide” and who was “tight.” Forest missed the humor of this exchange and was more frustrated by being shut out of the technical discussion. Looking back, he might be thankful for that. Paul jumped in front of the camera as host and contortionist. His trick getting out of a pair of handcuffs was impressive, and his delivery was both confident and comfortable. Who would have guessed Paul would excel in a form of public speaking?
 
Highlights of the telethon included a bachelor auction of Forest, who Sarah described as “98 pounds of pure nerd muscle,” and Tori. But, hands down, the best part feature was Monda’s song to Will. Will looked extremely uncomfortable being serenaded, and the others couldn’t hold in their laughter when she got to the verse, “Give us your lunch money and feel like a winner. Put it towards a fund that’s what it’s for, so Will can play with his pussy once more.” I almost choked I was laughing so hard. Monda has been on the sidelines for most of the season, but she can clearly hold her own. Ultimately, the team raised the money to cover Winston’s surgery, and Ben Huh and Todd Sawicki helped them reach the goal with a generous donation at the end. 
 
There is only one episode remaining and Bravo has not yet announced if it will renew the show for a second season. Hopefully, it will, but it may want to consider expanding it to an hour. It feels like we miss a lot that would be funny. It would have been great to see some of the other talent in the show, check in on Winston, and see how Forest’s and Tori’s dates went. Everybody should keep their fingers and paws crossed that there will be more LOLwork in the new year. 
 
Favorite Willism: “Thank you, I really like my new hip.” (in a British accent, because Winston is British.)
 
Tune into LOLwork’s season finale next Wednesday, December 12,  at 11:30/10:30c.
