-->''What are you doing? What, what, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?''

Brian Gallivan is what every single woman needs: a sassy gay friend. [[http://www.youtube.com/show/sassygayfriend?s=1 This series of skits are written by Gallivan and distributed by YouTube's The Second City Network]]. They involve a range of women from Shakespeare plays, movies, books and the Bible, who are all saved from their tragic fates by the intervention of a sassy gay friend. Just before disaster strikes, he pops out of nowhere, calls them out on their idiotic behavior, and encourages them to choose a wiser course of action.

Recently, he's been extending his help to male characters from history, legend and literature as well.

! Tropes

* CampGay: But of course.
* CatchPhrase: "What, what, WHAT are you doing?!" and "You stupid bitch!"
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot
--> "This fate could have been avoided, if she'd had a sassy gay friend..."
* DeadpanSnarker: Guess who?
** Anne Boleyn is one, too.
-->'''Anne:''' Can I get up now?
-->'''Sassy Gay Friend:''' Did you hear something, Henry?
-->'''Anne:''' ''(sigh)'' Just cut it off...
* DiscountLesbians: He accuses Nina from ''Film/BlackSwan'' of being one of these.
* DistractedByTheSexy:
-->'''Sassy Gay Friend:''' ''(to [[Literature/TheBible Eve]])'' Let's get you some clothes.
-->'''Eve:''' Oh, we should get Adam some clothes, too.
-->''(cut to Adam, who is gorgeous)''
-->'''Sassy Gay Friend:''' ''(dreamily)'' Ohmigod... no, he's ''fine''...
-->'''(Eve smacks the Sassy Gay friend playfully)'''
* TheDitz: Calypso.
--> ''"I'm a nymph!"''
* DrivenToSuicide: He saves Juliet and Ophelia from this fate.
* FourthDateMarriage: Romeo and Juliet, and very much lampshaded.
--> "You met him Sunday. It's barely Thursday morning. Slow down, crazy, slow down."
* GodivaHair: Eve has this, to go with her leaves.
* IconicItem: He's never seen without his sparkling scarf - not even in the Garden of Eden.
* IfItsYouItsOkay:
--> '''Nina:''' I did it with a ''girl!''
--> '''SGF:''' In a drug dream!
--> '''Nina:''' Yeah, well, it was Mila Kunis.
--> '''SGF:''' Aw, big deal. ''I'd'' sleep with Mila Kunis. (to the camera) Maybe. No.
* LargeHam: Why, the gentleman himself.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Juliet's defense. He doesn't buy it.
* MagicalQueer: Parodied
* TheMatchmaker: He hooks TheGivingTree up with [[Literature/ToKillAMockingbird Boo Radley]].
* NoodleIncident:
--> '''Sassy Gay Friend:''' ''(to Henry VIII)'' You take everything 2 steps too far! Annulment? Fine. Beheading? Excessive! When I return a blouse I don't shoot the cashier and burn the store down!
--> '''Anne Boleyn:''' One time you almost did...
--> '''Sassy Gay Friend:''' WHY did they need my zipcode, Anne?!
* OnceAnEpisode: "She's a stupid bitch" or "I'm a stupid bitch."
** "What are you doing? What, what, WHAT are you doing?"
* OnlySaneMan: The Sassy Gay Friend is often this.
* PetHomosexual: Again, parodied.
* ProductPlacement: Lampshaded in the ''Literature/GreatExpectations'' and ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'' episodes, and seems to be a regular feature of the episodes now (SGF is being paid by [=MiO=] to promote their drinks).
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech:
-->'''[[Film/BlackSwan Nina:]]''' But I ''finally'' did everything ''perfectly''!
-->'''Sassy Gay Friend:''' YOU HAVE DONE ''NOTHING'' PERFECTLY! ''Everything'' in your life could be improved! Number one, stop chomping people's tongues when you kiss them! Don't pick at your finger! Number two, when you're gonna [[ADateWithRosiePalms diddle yourself]], maybe glance around the room to make sure your MOM'S NOT THERE. [[MoodWhiplash P.S., your technique is amazing!]] ''DON'T PICK AT YOUR FINGER''. Number three, BUY SOME NAIL CLIPPERS.
-->'''Nina:''' I CAN'T!!!
-->'''Sassy Gay Friend:''' THEY ARE NINETY-NINE CENTS AT CVS!
* VisualPun: In the ''Othello'' video, Sassy Gay Friend pops out of the closet.
* [[VitriolicBestBuds Vitriolic Sassy Gay Friend]]: Has no problem insulting, heckling and berating his friends over their idiotic behavior even as he is helping them (and in a few cases, saving their lives).
* YouNeedToGetLaid: He says this to Lady Macbeth. Turns out she's just sick of being a {{Housewife}}.
