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.
