Drag Queen Bingo with Nancy Saeed
Upstairs @ The Western, 20th April –next session Thu 14th June
“more outrageous than a Wednesday afternoon at Freemans Common Gala,.”
Drag Queen Bingo. It does exactly what it says on the tin.
Drag Queen Nancy Saeed presides over cards of bingo and other silly games for what she freely admits are tacky gifts that even Blankety Blank would be ashamed of (actually, not that tacky, just low end and proud of it). But then who goes to this sort of night to win a life changing fortune? Its all about the craic!
Of course some of her acidic asides are bordering on tasteless, but what do you expect from a cock in a frock? This sure ain’t family fun. Leave your prudery at the door, embrace the glitz and have a good time. You never know, you may even win a bottle of Alepcin!
Our Nancy is also no mean singer as was shown by her initial version of Rollin’ Down The River and parody of Adele’s Hello.
A lively, enthusiastic, sold out audience were on her side from the very beginning.
If you are looking for a few games of bingo that are far more outrageous than a Wednesday afternoon at Freemans Common Gala, then this is for you. But be warned, the tickets fly so book early.
