The raunchy, demented drag diva of Wigstock fame presents her first full-length one wo-man show in almost a decade at the popular latin nightspot La Escuelita every Tuesday through December 26th. Fast-paced and action-packed with glitzy costumes and Bunny’s trademark gravity-defying bouffant wig, That Ain’t No Lady is a cabaret designed for a night club crowd–no lengthy monologues or sappy show tunes here. For mature audiences who enjoy irreverent humor!
Though she just finished her second season of RuPaul’s Drag U on Logo as the Dean Of Drag giving contestants “Lady Lessons”, Bunny’s deliciously bawdy brand humor is far from ladylike. Bunny re-works pop songs into hysterical parodies, using recent smashes like Ke$ha’s Tik Tok (which Bunny transforms into Big Cock) to classics like All That Jizz. No musical genre is sacred so expect to hear from everyone from Katy Perry to Taio Cruz to Britney and Whitney. Sprinkle in zany Laugh-In style joke routines for added politically incorrect fun.
The wacky blonde will also re-create some of her hit youtube videos, including her rap debut with a parody of Like A G6–the ode to uncircumcised men entitled Like A Cheese Stick, which was featured on Perez Hilton and Dlisted. Finally, a tribute to recently departed musical giant Amy Winehouse. And just wait until you get a load of Bunny as the monstrous “Scare” in a wicked spoof of Cher in Burlesque.
