"A crabby alternative to Christmas cheer. Tacky, tasteless and hysterical! An oasis of bile in a season of sappy sentiment." - Time Out New York
"Unforgettable! A holiday tradition is born!" - On & Off Magazine
"Jackie Beat's holiday show will knock you out!" - The Village Voice
JACKIE BEAT continues her mission to poison every sacred belief and holiday tradition. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa or Ramadan, an evening with Jackie Beat is always the perfect antidote to holiday cheer. This new holiday show is a virtual stocking stuffed with hilarious new seasonal material.
It all started so innocently in 1998 with Jesus Christ, It's Your Birthday!, a delightful non-denominational holiday tribute featuring such seasonal fare as "Sleigh Ride in Leather With You" and "Black Christmas." When the show was prominently featured in The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Right's 1998 Report on Anti-Catholicism, an annual holiday tradition was born. Beat's holiday shows, including How The Bitch Stole Christmas, Give 'Til It Hurts, Alcoholidays, Blew Christmas, The Nutcracker and Drag Nog have been performed at venues nationally.
Award-winning drag darling JACKIE BEAT has been wowing unsuspecting audiences since 1989. She has toured with Roseanne Barr -- as the comic legend's opening act -- including a 7-week run at The New York New York in Las Vegas; written for TV (Fashion Police, Hype! and The Sci Fi Channel's Tripping The Rift) and collaborated on special material with the like of Roseanne, Rosie O'Donnell and Jennifer Coolidge; appeared in countless TV shows (Sex and the City), movies (Grief, Wigstock The Movie, Flawless, Adam & Steve) and Off-Broadway hits (Valley of the Dolls, Tell-Tale!). She has been named Best Drag Queen by New York Press and Best Live Performance by HX Magazine. Jackie is also a columnist, lead singer for the electro-rock band, Dirty Sanchez, and the subject of the documentary film My Name is Jackie Beat including commentary from Joan Rivers, Margaret Cho, and Roseanne.
