Scaredy Kat (Ru Paul’s Drag Race) creates a brand new comedy series for Youtube.
As the UK continues its lockdown … or perhaps doesn’t … but definitely stays ALERT; escapism is becoming essential. Right at the centre of surreal entertainment sits brand new comedy YouTube Series The Bare & Klare Show. The series of six two-part 15 minute episodes were developed by Alex Cubb and his romantic/creative partner Remi May.
You can watch the pilot which is in two 15 min halves – here.

Isolation and art are the key themes with commentary on everything from the environment to social media along the way. Scaredy Kat’s alter-alter ego Bare and his acerbic cohort Klare, guide their humans through lockdown (yes we’re still in lockdown apparently)
Devised shut at home, the show is hosted by two magical stoner bears and features their enchanted friends Enchanted? Or possessed? Either way Coco the Fat Bat, Shaun the Turtle, and Piers Morgan the giant penis, are waiting to meet you. Anyone planning to enter the alternate reality of Bare and Klare should proceed at their own risk Don’t understand? Think: creepy Blue Peter meets Eurotrash meets 80s horror meets naughty Elmo. Clear now?
And yet, underneath all the whimsical folly and flashy gags, Bare and Klare attempt to get viewers thinking about their human lives. Really, how has it come to this? Perhaps we need to spend more time thinking about how some of the stuff going on, isn’t quite right. Bear & Klare would-be admirers can watch the pilot episode online right now, with episode two dropping this Saturday at 12pm. In the next episode viewers can look forward to a show where every second is different. Showing us that Bare and Klare have the shortest attention span known to bear.
Don’t even think about watching the less worthy YouTube shows after you’ve witnessed this one, Even if you wanted to, you couldn’t, because Bear & Klare will have captured both your hearts, and your free will. And if you don’t understand it, that’s because you’re not very cool, and no one wants to admit to that, so nod along with the kids. Do you understand? … Good, then it’s time to start watching The Bare & Klare Show.
