VIDEO: Comedian Drew Droege's Latest Chloe Sevigny Spoof Targets Los Angeles

Posted: Updated:
  • Make a nectarine dessert--and gift it to Taryn Manning.
  • Repeal Beaujolais Nouveau.
  • Take a bikram yoga class wearing a fitness bra by Imitation of Christ, kulats by Danskin and goldenrod Havaianas.
If you've kept up with the season's viral video hits, you'd recognize these from Chloe Sevigny's checklist of things to do this summer. The brains behind it? Comedian and Groundlings alum Drew Droege, whose homage to one of fashion and art's simultaneously inspiring and inscrutable icons is, well, genius.

"It's fun because I really like Chloe--often because she never stops being ridiculous," Droege says during a recent visit to Style Section L.A. (we're big fans; so is Perez Hilton). "Like, really? Were you really reading J.D. Salinger while sipping some rare scotch and talking poetry with Da Brat?"

Chloe has been in Droege's character arsenal for years, but only recently did he connect with director Jim Hansen for the web series, which now also includes Chloe's stab at stand-up comedy and a list of her birthday gifts (among them: a vintage half-caftan by Vivienne Westwood gold label). "It cracks me up what she wears sometimes," Droege says. "It's very early nineties. Very Sara Gilbert, very afghan on the back of the couch from Roseanne."

A native of North Carolina, Droege recently nabbed the award for Outstanding Emerging Talent at Outfest last month. As for the Chloe series, be on the lookout for a new chapter on Babelgum soon. A good source tells us Chloe herself has seen Droege's work; what does she think? We're not sure, but we're trying to find out.

"I'd hope she would get it," Droege says of his tongue-in-cheek tribute. "It's not a straight up imitation. I don't even try to do her voice. It has as much to do with that whole scene as it does with her. I've seen her at parties before but have never met her. Now I think I'll have to introduce myself."

Before he left us on a recent afternoon, Droege morphed into character and gave us the download on Chloe's recent L.A. adventures. Enjoy.
