Dungeons & Drag Kweens’ First Birthday

Sydney’s most ridiculous (and only) evening that smashes together drag, nerd culture and improvised storytelling is celebrating its first birthday!

From the basement of the Imperial Hotel where it all began, the Kweens are braced for the final showdown with the lizard people and the finale to a season that has seen the fabulous trio and their fearless dungeon master fleeting between sultry disguises and intergalactic battles.

Dungeons & Drag Kweens is not only a monthly live event, but it is also a podcast phenomenon.

“Being able to escape into this super fun, beautifully stupid universe brings so much joy to my daily commutes!” said one listener.

“The show has a dedicated following and proves that there are audiences and demand for regular queer-produced comedy nights,” said show producer and star, Cleo.

“Additionally, the show attracts audiences that don’t resonate with the clubbing/drinking events that are usually associated with LGBT+ entertainment. This atmosphere of a welcoming space for all is something that is a primary focus for [Dungeons and Drag Queens, as well as] our new show, Kweens of Comedy.”

The hilarity and chaotic energy of a night with the Kweens is as accessible as can be. A prior knowledge of Dungeons and Dragons is not a prerequisite to enjoying this show, nor is an understanding of the previous adventures of Cleo and the gang.

Find the Dungeons & Drag Kweens podcast through your preferred listening hub, and follow The Kweens on Facebook and Instagram to stay in the loop with all their events.

May 29. The Imperial Hotel, 35 Erskineville Rd, Erskineville. $12.50+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.humanitix.com.au
