Britney Spears Gets The Thumbs Up For Her Sitcom Appearance

March 25th, 2008 // 14 Comments

Britney Spears appeared on How I Met Your Mother last night, and got some good reviews. She played a lovelorn receptionist with a thing for the Ted character, who looks like manga. Britney wowed the critics. Ok, she “surprised” the critics with comedic timing.

She looked beautiful and had screen presence,” says Charna Halpern, artistic director of Chicago’s Improv Olympic Comedy Club. “Even when she was behind the desk and they made her look kind of homely, she was adorable.”

Charna (hot name) has trained comedians such as Tina Fey, so I guess she knows comedy. A couple of other randoms thought she had stage presence as well.

Her comedic timing “was good at some parts, especially in some of her reactions,” says Dean Cudworth, director of the Idol Camp.

Ok, I have no idea who any of these people are. American Idol camp? But they were brave enough to go out on a limb for Britney, so I’ll let it pass. Maybe a situation comedy is what Britney needs right now. She can have the adoration of a live audience, there’s no need to lip synch, and she can live in her own interior universe. It’s almost perfect if Starbucks can cater.

    I’ve always enjoyed her on Saturday Night Live. She’s always done well. I think she’s a good comedian. I’m glad she did well on this show. Maybe she can get another SNL gig.
    Yay Britney!

    Good for her. She deserves good news. She’s darling.

    But what I really want to know is when the hell is Sam Lutfi’s day in court? If that guy truly kept her drugged, he needs to do time.

    I watched the epsiode, as I like this show, and I must say she did great. She made me giggle a few times. I think they could have found a friggen better hair piece for her though, it looked a little rough at the beginning of the episode.

    The part she was given was plenty enough for her for right now to prove she could pull it off and she did it wonderfully. However, that ball of yarn she uses as hair was in dire need of a good washing. Ugh.

  8. peachpie

    Man, LOL drunken lauren… nooo, manga is not a shortening of magnum p.i…. LOL!!!

    “Manga” are Japanese comic books/graphic novels. The word literally means “whimsical pictures” in Japanese.

  12. DruNken LauRen
