Paul T Davies reviews Drag Queens V Vampires playing at Underbelly as part of the Edinburgh Fringe.
Drag Queens v Vampires
Underbelly, Edinburgh Fringe
10 August 2023
Buckle up for a ride to Transylvania for Eurovision with Jizz Air, (Look, it’s a show about drag Queens v Vampires. If you want subtlety go to the International Festival), in the capable hands of our hosts Kate Butch and Crudi Dench.
Critical analysis isn’t necessary for a show like this, we just need to check that all the elements are present. Filthy double entendres? Check ✔️ Drag sense of throwing a show together? Check ✔️ Brilliant audience participation? Check ✔️ (We had a wonderful Count! Make your own joke up!)
It’s a hilarious, fun-filled hour that raises the roof and throws in a bit of Eurovision sing-along as well! The Queen’s are fabulous and the atmosphere was so warm. It does exactly what you hope a drag show will do, with delightful improvisation and corpsing. The perfect way to either end your day or set you up for a good night out!
