Once Upon a Time

once mt 46fBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy


As if Sunday nights couldn’t get any gayer, with Pan Am‘s “Barbies in the sky” and the cougar mausoleum of Desperate House hags, ABC adds another “fairy tale” with Once Upon a Time to its line up. A novel idea, Once Upon a Time is about fairy tale characters, if they were real. Snow White’s Evil Queen Mother puts a curse on all the fairy tale characters, banishing them to the fictional Storybrooke, sans any knowledge of who they really are.

Once Upon a Time is clever, well produced, well acted, and brewing with potential. With riffs on Jiminy Cricket and wrinkled foreskin – oops, I meant Rumpelstiltskin (damn autocorrect!), Once Upon a Time fits perfectly in a line up that would get any showgirl kicking and any Dorothy clicking. “There’s no place more fit for a queen…” than ABC Sunday nights.

Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (, A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (, and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the “Divas and Lassoes” panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his “underground” status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
