Klaus Nomi as "Mame"


I always think of this this time of year... if Klaus Nomi had lived I am convinced that Saturday Night live would have dressed him as Lucille Ball in "Mame" and had him sing this song. Look at her hand gestures! Her outfit! She's practically Klaus already! It would have been PERFECT! "We need a little Christmas" was made for him to sing!

As miss Lethal knows, my dog for 17 years was named Nomi... he even had a friend named Klaus for a while! If they were both misbehaving when I was walking then I got to yell Klaus! Nomi! and not look totally wacked!

Santa Klaus

Lucy was 62 and too old to be playing Mame, hence the soft focus close-ups. She fired Madeline Kahn as Agnes Gooch and brought in stage vet Jane Connell.
