RuPaul’s Drag Race legends Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme are set to bring their critically acclaimed holiday show back for their biggest international tour yet.
The duo will be taking The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show to 30 cities around the world this winter.
Starting in Glasgow in November, it will see the queens combine their signature comedy with a number of brand new songs – as well as the annual favourites fans love.
It is written solely by Jinkx and DeLa, with this year marking the duo’s fifth holiday show that will see them visit the UK, US and Canada.
“With all the hatred, darkness, and misinformation flying around our world today, it is an honour and a privilege to spend the holidays with tens of thousands of audience members each year, creating joyous community spaces where we can gather strength through laughter and celebration,” DeLa, who is also one of the show’s producers and its director, said.
“Whether you consider it the most wonderful time of year or the most troubling, we’re here to tell you… you’re right! So let’s make it our own.”
Jinkx added that 2023 has “been a wild year” so the tour is the perfect way to “end it wildly” too.
“DeLa and I strive to entertain while we enlighten and enliven,” she continued. “The Jinkx & Dela Holiday Show is not only a moment of respite, but also of community, at a time where we need our chosen family and community most of all. So add us to your holiday plans, or let us BE your holiday plans— either way, you’re welcome to join us.”
The show is produced by BenDeLaCreme Presents, a company made up of producers DeLa, Kevin Heard, Gus Lanza, and Associate Producer Jin Moon.
Both Jinkx and DeLa have seen immeasurable levels of success since their runs on Drag Race, becoming two of the world’s most well-known drag performers.
The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show runs from 12 November to 30 December. Tickets are available here.
