It’s time to say goodbye to fall. It’s time to say hello to winter. And it’s time for Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme to bring the holiday cheer back home with The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show, produced by BenDeLaCreme Presents.
Packed with spectacular stage productions, whip-smart comedy, brand new songs and annual favourites, this wildly successful tour will run from November 23 – December 30 across the U.S. and Canada with a new show written by Jinkx & DeLa that proves why they’re still the reigning “queens of Christmas” (Entertainment Weekly).
A holiday show unlike any other
BenDeLaCreme (who’s currently slaying the competition on All Stars 7) and Jinkx Monsoon (whose current run of incredible work on RuPaul’s Drag Race has won her legions of fans) are bringing their unique, joyful, surrealist, communal, and heartwarming show to the stage this December.
The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show is a night of celebration, laughter, cheering, and feeling each other’s feelings. It’s everything you’d expect from a drag queen variety show — except it will also test your limits of stupidity while also being unexpectedly deep and reflective.
You’ll get all of that at this show plus more! The two queens will be joined by special guests for hilarious sketches that never fail to bring the house down. You’ll leave feeling connected to the good in the world because you were able to celebrate it together with so many others and that’s what makes this show so special.
BenDeLaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon are the sole writers of their holiday shows, a major achievement for two drag artists who tour at such a large scale each year. Jinkx says, “I think it is important that the show is created BY us, so it’s decidedly FOR us, and those like us. So often, queer and drag stories are written by outsiders, and lack an authenticity that queer audiences crave. Creating the show ourselves, from the ground up, ensures that that authenticity is infused in every aspect of the production.”
DeLa adds, “Jinkx and I LOVE writing. We are passionate and have something to say. It comes from the heart. Writing AND performing as a combo is the best way for us to express what drives us as artists and as humans and fortunately, on top of that, people just happen to think we’re very funny.”
Jinkx Monsoon and DeLa Sunshine are the queens of Christmas
The pair have been touring holiday shows together for the past four years, including 2018’s To Jesus, Thanks for Everything and All I Want for Christmas Is Attention, 2019’s The Return of the Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show, Live!, 2021’s The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Special (Hulu / PVOD), and 2020’s BenDeLaCreme Presents: The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Special (Hulu / PVOD). They’ve also produced their first-ever holiday film under BenDeLaCreme Presents: The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Special (Hulu / PVOD).
The film debuted to critical acclaim and solidified itself as a global queer holiday must-watch for years to come.
