Comedy Flashback: Karen Walker of Will & Grace

Some comedies come and go without leaving much impact while others continue to entertain us long after they have ended. NBC’s hit Will & Grace is maybe even funnier now than then. Coming out the next season after ABC’s Ellen was cancelled (a not so fair ending to another good show that was unfairly boycotted once her character “came out”).

NBC took a gamble not knowing how Will & Grace would fair after the controversy with Ellen and it’s sponsors.   And nobody brought us more laughs than Megan Mullally’s Karen Walker character.

Yes it really could have been called The Karen & Jack Show . She was America’s favorite (except the conservative far right’s) pill popping, booze drinking, social climbing, spoiled housewife. Here’s to Karen Walker and Will & Grace for making us laugh.
