I Wanna Be a Republican (2006)
1h 24min · Comedy, Music · 21 June 2006
In their first live concert film, the Kinsey Sicks -- America's Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet -- reveal the shocking news: they have gone Republican. In this mock GOP fund-raiser, Rachel, Winnie, Trixie and Trampolina, the four gifted singers and comedians who comprise the quartet, defend their conversion to conservatism. They sing -- literally! -- the praises of corruption, tokenism, greed and all things nuclear (both families and bombs). The Kinsey Sicks have been a cult phenomenon for over a decade. From Off-Broadway to Vegas and beyond, the larger-than-life Kinsey Sicks have developed a loyal following among comedy fans, music aficionados and lovers of biting political satire. Their hilarious, intelligent writing and their finely spiced menu of thought-provoking original songs and wicked parodies have won them a Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Best Musical and a Drama Desk Award nomination for Best Lyrics. They have won numerous a cappella awards and the New York Times has praised their "voices sweet as birdsong."
