If you missed Drew Droege’s hilarious one-man show on stage, BroadwayHD has captured it for the screen. Writer-performer Droege stars as Gerry, the motor-mouthed house guest from hell at the Palm Springs wedding of his friends Josh and Brennan. Gerry is furious that the invitation forbids guests from wearing “bright colors and bold patterns,” which sets him off on a rant about gay assimilation and Lifetime movies, culminating in a riotous, coke-fueled meltdown.
