God is a Scottish Drag Queen

If church was like this, I would be going every Sunday! Today I joined over 100 other patrons and headed down to Performance Works Theatre on Granville Island to take in the gospel of comedian Mike Delamont in his one-person stand-up act, God Is a Scottish Drag Queen. And boy is he Hilarious!!

This is the first show I've attended at this year's Vancouver International Fringe Festival, and I'm so glad it was because it was a riot! But now the bar has been raised, and you know that it can be hit or miss when it comes to festivals and picking out what you want to see. I'm happy to report that God Is a Scottish Drag Queen is a bonafide hit!

I only went to this because a friend on Facebook had an extra ticket and had done the research, saying that the show had garnered rave reviews at Fringe festivals in other cities. In fact, between the last two shows here in Vancouver, Delamont has to fly out to perform two nights in New York before coming back to help wrap up the Fringe! He had the audience rolling in the aisles as he pontificated on topics such as gay marriage, heaven, and his role as the Almighty. Each show is bound to be different, as one never knows where the audience participation (i.e. heckling) is gonna take you! Delamont handles it all with finesse and humour, making this a word-of-mouth must-see at The Fringe.

What Fringe shows are you seeing? Any recommendations or suggestions?

God Is a Scottish Drag Queen only has 2 shows left, and it has been selling out so get your tickets quick! Catch him on Sep 11 @ 9:30 PM or Sep 14 @ 6:45 PM at Performance Works on Granville Island. Happy Fringing!
