The San Francisco Drag King Contest has evolved into a huge community event where artists of all disciplines, including gender illusionists, film stars, burlesque legends and more, leave their mark on the stage like dogs in heat. Expect to see everything from lip-synching to mud wrestling to “other talents” that might make even the savviest viewer of cable access TV blush with delight. The show is produced and co-emceed by impresario Fudgie Frottage, aka: ‘The Man with the Biggest Balls in Show Business.’ Sister Roma - one of the most outspoken and universally recognized members of the Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence once again offers divine inspiration and sexually-charged perspiration as co-emcee.
This year, in celebration of our 19th star-studded year The San Francisco Drag King Contest will feature rock legend, Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go's, aka comicon's Lady Robotika and Mo B. Dick, the star of John Water's "Pecker".
The theme is dedicated to burlesque non-ingenue Klingon Vanna White, who is celebrating her 50th Birthday by performing her infamous Shattered act, a tribute to William Shattner. A veritable Cavalcade of Kings will also grace the stage -- performances by past SF Drag King winners including favorites Leigh Crow (Vice Palace, artist formerly known as Elvis Herselvis), old skool rappers?The Momma's Boyz (SFDK’05), Arty Fishal (SFDK’98) DeeDee Luxe (from NY’s The Box, Fassbender's "Shame" and Joaquin Phoenix' "The Immigrant"), Fella-Fem (SFDK'08), Hamm Graham, (SFDK‘10) GQ Society (SFDK'11)), Kit Tapata (Mr. Gay '11) and more TBA. They all will be on board to keep the testosterone-fueled show pumping. This year’s DJ’s are Simone & Davide aka DJ DIE.
