Tracey's New 'State'

By LillyKat

Has it really been almost a year since we've seen Tracey Ullman's State of the Union sketch comedy series? Is that possible?

Perhaps there should be a law that much comedic genius shouldn't be allowed to be away THAT long.

Thankfully, she's back for season two, which premiered Sunday night on Showtime. Is it bad I started laughing BEFORE the show even started as I was remembering the sketches from LAST season?!?

How I've missed my favorites: Blogs and Kisses Arianna Huffington; TSA Agent Chanel; Bollywood Pharmacist Padma Perkesh; Horror-Fear-Terror-Horror News Anchor Campbell Brown.

Newbies: Former First Lady Barbara Bush organizing a presidential garage sale; the woman stuck in her toy box of a car called the Mint Body Trap Hybrid with OnStar; Celine Dion Reporting from the 9th Ward in New Orleans; flight attendants charging $5 for emergencies - and they don't carry change.

And that was only the first episode.

New episodes of Tracey Ullman's State of the Union air Sundays at 10 p.m. on Showtime. Even if you don't get Showtime, you can catch up on all the goods over at the show's official Web site.

Don't know about the "State Of The Union" but Ms Ullman should get the "State Of Her Health" looked at. She should see a doctor with that tongue!



ps. Was the word verification choice of "phogie" trying to tell me something. Just because I can remember Tracey in her early days on UK TV doesn't mean I'm that old! :-)
