EW has exclusive details for new specials from Jinkx Monsoon, Monét X Change, Ginger Minj, Peppermint, Bebe Zahara Benet, and Darienne Lake.
The comedy queens are coming, and EW has an exclusive reveal of the premiere dates for an exciting roster of stand-up specials from RuPaul’s Drag Race royals.
Six former Drag Race contestants will debut new comedy shows on digital on-demand platforms in the months ahead, including sets from All Stars 4 champion Monét X Change, All Stars 6 competitor Ginger Minj, season 1 winner Bebe Zahara Benet, season 6 legend Darienne Lake, season 9 trailblazer Peppermint, and All Stars 7 winner and upcoming Doctor Who star Jinkx Monsoon.
In collaboration with Comedy Dynamics and Tribeca, all of the specials will be available in on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play, YouTube, Vimeo, and cable providers worldwide.
In addition to their stand-up comedy shows, the queens involved are hard at work on other projects, with Jinkx recently completing her historic Broadway run as Mama Morton in Chicago before heading out on a world tour, Monét recently launching her BOMO Beauty line with Bob the Drag Queen, and Bebe joining forces with other Drag Race queens for her new Nubia tour.
“I’m going to find the parallels between the witch hunts that existed in the olden days, when women were persecuted for taking on the patriarchy, and the parallels happening right now with the queer, trans, and LGBTQIA+ community — the witch hunt we’re experiencing as we take on the patriarchy,” Jinkx recently told EW of her upcoming Everything at Stake tour. “It’s Everything at Stake because this is the most attention I’ve had on me in some time, and I want to show the world why I deserve that attention. That’s where it started, and since coming to this title, the world continues to be a f—ing s— show. And the title now has multiple meanings, of course, that will find its way into my work for this tour. I’m too loud-mouthed and opinionated for me not to bring what’s going on in the world into my work.”
