Drag Race’s Courtney Act confirmed for Edinburgh Festival Fringe


She’s quit relying on that body…

Australian drag superstar Courtney Act has been confirmed to perform at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.

She’ll be performing her solo show, The Girl From Oz, for 11 nights at Underbelly’s Circus Hub from the 13 to 26 August in a show that promises to “take us over the rainbow and down under” with a comedy and live tunes extravaganza.

This is the latest date to be added to The Girl From Oz tour which also takes Courtney to Brighton Fringe on 31 May and London’s Underbelly Festival on the 9 and 11 of August.

Courtney rose to fame in 2003, when she made it to the semi-finals of Australian Idol as the world’s first openly queer and gender diverse contestants on reality TV.

She subsequently appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2014, where she sashayed her way into the top three of the sixth season.

She’s been pretty busy musically recently as well, as she is set to appear in a new Little Mix video alongside Alaska and Willam.
