Don’t miss iconic drag queen Myra DuBois in her darkly hilarious, funeral-themed show ‘Dead Funny’
Drag queen and icon Myra DuBois has announced a headline UK tour, and you won’t want to miss it.
The comedian will take her Dead Funny tour to venues across the country in 2021 and 2022, which includes her solo West End debut.
The show sees Myra bring forward her own funeral so she doesn’t “miss out on the most attention she’ll ever receive” – and that it’s done right.
She previously performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019 for a sold-out run, but is finally taking it on the road after postponing the tour due to the pandemic.
It’s described as an “evening packed with so many laughs, you’ll R.I.Pee yourself” and will feature her trademark acid-tongued wit alongside songs penned by Richard Thomas, known for his work on Jerry Springer The Opera.
Myra gained national recognition when she appeared on Britain’s Got Talent 2020, reaching the semi-final of the competition.
During her performance she treated audience members to a stand-up routine which included a duet with judge Amanda Holden on the song “I Know Him So Well”.
She’s also set to appear in the upcoming film adaption of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie in a yet-to-be revealed role.
The much-anticipated film is skipping its cinema release and will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on 17 September.
