I wished I could share with you this happiness, but the best I could do is direct to you to search for “monomane” on the usual video streaming sites. Do it. Now. Then go back here.

I love spoofs. When there is something that ‘mimics’ some other popular thing, I really squeal like a pig in laughter. That’s why when I saw a couple of monomane (mimicry of something) TV specials… I JUST CAN’T STOP LAUGHING!

Basically, these are TV specials where some people or group does a comedic act using various kinds of mimicry of some artist/singer/fictional character. There would be a couple of acts going head to head against each other, and some audience would vote on who they like, in which the person/group will win whatever.

But enough about that, what I saw in those TV specials would be something I’ll never forget. They basically spoofed everything I knew about Japanese artists/singers/characters I can’t take it anymore (dying of laughter). Of course, there were some acts I didn’t get because I didn’t know about the spoof, but I still laugh with their weird acts. But wait, there’s more! Not even international artists/celebrities/singers/characters can escape. They spoof popular world stuff too!

From SMAP to KAT-TUN (boybands) to Tamori (famous TV host) to Hard Gay (comedian) to DJ OZMA (singer) to Utada Hikaru (singer) to even some girl from an early Gundam anime series. Jack Sparrow to Bruce Willis to Michael Jackson to even some soccer player who headbutts. They basically make fun of virtually anything… I wish there were more, much more. I don’t know if there are other shows like that besides the specials, which might just be once a year. Sad… so sad that it’s probably the last I’ll ever see of those monomane.

If, by any chance, you see some internet video or know of any programming schedules about monomane, please do comment or contact me. Please. I need all the laughter I can get. It was such a nice laugh… haaaaah… I need some sleep now.
