These jokers are wild!

Fun, fruity and frolicsome, there's nothing straight about 'The Drag Kings'. Piss-taking, gender-faking and the (ahem) odd bit of homage-making is what this troupe excell at. This brand new comedy cabaret from Wellington's original, iconic Drag King troupe will leave you in a right royal flush.

These seasoned performers have strutted their stuff at Downstage Theatre, Melbourne's Mid-Summa Festival, the NZ International Comedy Festival, the Wellington Fringe Festival, International Drag King Festivals in USA and Australia, and lots of varying straight and queer venues/bars/festivals throughout NZ/Aotearoa; including of course, the opening of any rainbow envelope.

There's closeted protection about the contents of Royal Flush, but if cardinals, bogans, 70's soul groovers and a host of icons tickle ya fancy then this show will certainly provide more than a full-deck!
The Drag Kings enjoy applying their unique, rainbow goggled perspective to the shows they craft.

Inspiration comes from the straight and queer world and things they find funny/weird/worthy. Typically, their shows are packed with toe-tapping lip-syncing and dancing (hey, they're happy to pretend to dance!), live chat (ups), AV filmy bits, live singing and even live breathing (sometimes).

Since they started performing in 2001, they've enjoyed sold-out shows! Their take on celebrities, everyday blokes and women, animals and even inanimate objects have endeared them to straight & queer audiences non-alike. Isn't it great to know nothing is safe?

Whatever or whoever they choose to portray, you can rest assured a show by these bods will veer recklessly from poor taste to relatable, to weird, to homage, to silly, to 'out-there' and beyond.

'The Drag Kings' have not only been blessed with support from their rainbow community they've also enjoyed seeing growing numbers of straight, cool audience members at their shows too!

Everyone is welcome!

If you like laughing at funny stuff, then you'll hit the jack-pot with Royal Flush by The Drag Kings - they're ace!
