Watch the new episode of UNHhhh – it’s the show where they talk about whatever they want
You might never have watched an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race but regardless, you have to treat yourself to a weekly dose of the surreal comedic stylings of Drag Race alums Trixie Mattell and Katya Zamolodchikova.
This is a web series where two drag queens sit in front of green screen and – loosely – talk about a topic, but there’s something unique about UNHhhh that makes it compelling viewing and utterly hilarious.
The chemistry between Trixie and Katya is a great starting point. They’re funny, intelligent, they don’t care if they look stupid, and they seem to genuinely enjoy each other’s company. Layered on top of that is some next-level editing. Editors Jeff Maccubbin and Ron Hill use all the tricks of the trade to add extra levels of context and humour to whatever rambling story that Trixie and Katya might be trying to navigate the viewers through.
This is possibly the best thing that’s ever been filmed.
Trixie and Katya are currently away from Los Angeles – Trixie is performing in Provincetown while Katya is touring her one-woman show – and so instead of a new episode, editors Jeff and Ron have put together a random selection of moments from recent filming sessions. This is their eighth random collection, and it’s definitely worth watching.
The joy of these episodes where random bits of content are spliced together is that they make just about as much sense as a normal episode which is supposed to be focused on a specific theme.
There’s so many highlights in this episode – I particularly liked the discussion of male wigs – “Life is not community theatre, bitch!” as well as the exchange about the colour of their nipples – “What colour is your nipple?” “You dont’ want to know…”
The bad news is that it seems that the UNHhhh team are going to be taking a break for the next few weeks until Trixie and Katya return to home-base and new footage can be filmed. It looks like we’re going to be re-watching a lot of back-episodes to fill the void.
