James Corden, Alan Cumming, Jesse Tyler Ferguson Perform Inappropriate Musicals About Stranger Things & More TV Faves


We’re living in a time when just about anything can be turned into a musical, and many shows try to have a “musical episode.” Well, it seems the folks at The Late, Late Show with James Corden want to help the creators of Stranger Things along. They even pay homage to Breaking Bad! Join Corden, along with guests Alan Cumming and Jesse Tyler Ferguson as they perform Inappropriate Musicals based on your favorite shows.

What’s funny is that I think the cast of Game of Thrones singing “Winter is coming all over you” isn’t “inappropriate” at all, when you consider the show.

But what I really love is the Stranger Things musical, told from the point of view of the Demogorgon. All three of these men are awesome musical theater performers, but Corden rocks it out as the monster singing about how he wants to take Will’s “pretty mama to the Upside Down” and totally channeling Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors.

What shows do you think deserve the musical treatment?
