The Nobodies Hosting All Stars 4
Friday, February 1 at Brooklyn Bazaar, 7 pm: FREE
The fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars is upon us, and has been for some weeks now. It also happens to be the only season I have ever watched, and every week I am reminded of how much the main challenge of each episode typically resembles something I was once made to do in theater school. If you don’t want to watch alone, sashay to Brooklyn Bazaar, where drag collective (and pro-wrestling aficionados) The Nobodies will be hosting a screening of the latest episode, as they do every week. Obviously when drag performers host a Drag Race screening, you’re not just going to get people sitting and staring at a screen. This is a show in its own right: expect live drag acts, bingo, banter, and even the chance to do your own lip-synch if you so desire.
Oh, Such A Huge Show, Oh!
Saturday, February 2 at The Bell House, 7:30 pm: $20 advance, $25 day of show
Yes, you’ll have to make the trek to Park Slope for this, and yes, the ticket price is a little higher than the average comedy show. But that’s because this isn’t your average comedy show: this edition of Josh Nasser and Ethan Beach’s comedic romp is bigger and better than ever, as it not only contains a whole host of some of the comedy world’s most interesting and entertaining performers, but all proceeds will go to the Transgender Law Center. The lineup includes Jo Firestone, Aparna Nancherla, HQ’s Scott Rogowsky, Cat Cohen, Jes Tom, Larry Owens, Joe Pera, and maybe even some animals? You’ll have to see for yourself.
