RuPaul's Drag Race Alum Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme have announced details for the 2022 Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show live spectacular.
The pair announced the details exclusively to Entertainment Weekly on Thursday, July 7, 2022. The tour will visit 22 cities across North America and Canada and was written by Jinkx and DeLa.
"It will take everything you expect from a drag queen variety show, and spin it on its side. It will test the limits of stupidity, while being unexpectedly deep and reflective. We strive for entertainment while always proving that the holidays are for you to celebrate however you want to," Jinkx says in an exclusive statement to EW about the new show.
"The one thing that always remains the same is that our show is about the importance of friendship, chosen family, and creating our own holiday traditions," DeLa adds. "And creating our own traditions means always staying present with what has worked in the past and what needs some freshening up, and that's true of entertainment too! We want to give our audiences a place to go that can be reliably fun, exciting, and bring something new to their season in addition to comfort and familiarity. Every year we take an honest look at ourselves and the world around us, and create new material that reflects back our common experience. We want people to feel entertained and seen!"
The pair has paired up in the past for multiple projects including "To Jesus, Thanks for Everything" and "All I Want for Christmas Is Attention"
Jinkx is currently competing to become the winner of all winners on the current season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 7 and DeLaCreme debut on the sixth season of RuPaul's Drag Race and competed for the All Stars Season on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3.
