Global drag icons and RuPaul’s Drag Race stars, BenDeLaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon are back ansd they’re all decked out in tinsel and holly! The Queens of Christmas are in the midst of a 25-city tour of The Return of The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show, LIVE! (produced by BenDeLaCreme Presents) across the U.S., U.K. and Canada from November 13 – December 30, 2021. This run marks the biggest tour for Jinkx & DeLa’s holiday show since its wildly successful inception, as they return with their signature whip-smart comedy, brand new songs, and a few perennial favorites.

But the really big news is: No matter where you are in the world you can now enjoy these drag superstars from the comfort of your own home.

With the help of a chorus of dancers and DeLa’s deceased grandmother—whose spirit lives on in a glass of eggnog—DeLa tries her hardest to uphold the cheery Christmas traditions of her childhood. Meanwhile, Jinkx is much more interested in bawdy jokes, cute boys, and boozy libations. As they sing and dance their way through numbers about everything from St. Nick to the Christ child, the tension between them mounts, culminating in an all-out battle for control of the show. After some hilarious insight into the ghosts of their very different Christmas pasts, and with the help of a mysterious naked man with a surprising holiday secret, the two realize that tradition can be whatever we make of it, and family is whomever we choose.

This high camp, side-splitting romp is equal parts sacrilegious and sweet, with a sharp tongue and a heart of gold. “The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Special” is sure to be a new holiday tradition for all the lost toys who know that the best traditions are the ones we create ourselves.

For the past three years, Jinkx and DeLa have owned the holiday season with their critically-acclaimed sold-out holiday tours (To Jesus, Thanks for Everything in 2018 and All I Want for Christmas Is Attention in 2019). In 2020, BenDeLaCreme produced her first-ever film under BenDeLaCreme Presents with The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Special (Hulu / PVOD), a 60-minute variety special made for the screen.

In exclusive statements to Entertainment Weekly, BenDeLaCreme said, “After a year in captivity Jinkx and I are bustin’ at the seams and rarin’ to go! Waiting for Santa is NOTHING compared to the excitement I feel to be back in theaters, sharing the holidays with the chosen family we’ve collected around the globe!” Jinkx Monsoon added, “I’m thrilled to be back on tour with my sister DeLa, celebrating the holidays the way I was meant to: boozed up, bawdy, and on display.”
