They're back! After three successful sold-out tours, Drag Race legends, BenDeLaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon are coming back to town with another holiday special, The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show.

Out to price why they're the reigning "queens of Christmas" the internationally acclaimed stars will embark on a 26-city tour from 17 November - 30 December across the UK, US, and Canada with a whole brand new show.

Fans can expect another year of fabulous spectacle, whip-smart comedy, brand new songs, and annual favorites.

Of the show, BenDeLaCreme says, "The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show is joyous, hilarious, surrealist, communal, and heartwarming. Nothing makes me feel more connected to the good in the world than the seas of people we get to celebrate the season with night after night--laughing, cheering, and being in our feelings together.

"I’m so lucky to get to experience that each year, and I hope you all will experience it with us."

Current All Stars 7 queen, Jinkx Monsoon adds, "The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show will take everything you expect from a drag queen variety show, and spin it on its side.

"It will test the limits of stupidity while being unexpectedly deep and reflective. We strive for entertainment while always proving that the holidays are for you to celebrate however you want to."

Written once again by DeLa and Jinkx the show is authentically queer, drag, and absolutely camp. We wouldn't want it any other way!

The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show is co-written and co-created by BenDeLaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon, directed by BenDeLaCreme, and produced by BenDeLaCreme Presents.
