“The Haters Roast: The Shady Tour” brings a hilarious comedy artform to San Diego. "Drag Race" stars step up to the dais.
There might be no better convergence of entertainment and comedy than a celebrity roast and when you add famous Ru Paul Drag Racers to the panel you know its going to be a hilarious night of non-stop insults all done in good fun.
“The Haters Roast: The Shady Tour” is doing just that by bringing some of the Drag Races most notorious competitors to the Balboa Theatre on Thursday, March 23, for an all-out assault on your funny bone.
Producers Murray and Peter have gathered all your favorites together for this low-brow comedy with high-brow drag stars.
Included in the cast of roasters are Bob the Drag Queen, Acid Betty, Trixie Mattel, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Jinkx Monsoon, Phi Phi O'Hara, and Ginger Minj.
In the 70’s celebrity roasts were an annual affair on television. Celebrities at the time would gather together and take potshots at their friends in the business.
Part of the fun comes from seeing the recipient of the barbs writhe in their seat as one after another celebrity guest pokes fun at their livelihood.
The format has recently made a comeback. In fact late last year one roast in honor of Rob Lowe turned sour for Republican commentator Ann Coulter as the acerbic barbs meant to be hurled at Lowe made her the target instead.
It’s all in good fun and a good sense of humor is definitely required, but it may take a lot for the Ru Paul queens to crack under the pressure after surviving their respective seasons in the shade of the workroom.
