“Peeno Noir,” au revoir.
Titus Andromedon’s low-budget music video was a highlight of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s first season, but star Tituss Burgess promises something just as big in season 2: a one-man show.
“I think it is more absurd than ‘Peeno Noir’,” says Burgess.
The actor told HuffPostLive on Monday that while he wasn’t worried about trying to “top” the viral hit, he did want to give the audience a scene with “the same energetic, atmospheric, nonsensical feel.” If his reaction at the table read is any indication, the writers nailed it.
“I looked up at Tina [Fey], and she was like, ‘Just keep on going!’” Burgess laughs.
Check out the clip for Burgess’ other hints for next season, including more guest stars and a look back at Titus’ wedding — then hop in a midsize car and head to a leather bar.
