These brilliant performers continue, after twenty years, to entertain like no other comedy/variety act! The clever and, at times, genius lyrics from known music flows throughout the show is hilarious.. Sometimes, the fast past songs lost the...continued

They have done it again, allowing us to laugh at painful political topics,
via insightful observations delivered as humor on the naughty side. Largely new material
with the witty and acerbic lyrics we have come to love. Some fun audience...continued

Description

The Kinsey Sicks are a sensation! With a phenomenal performance record that includes an off-Broadway show, an extended run in Vegas, two feature films, seven albums, and appearances throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia, the Kinsey Sicks hardly need an introduction. For almost 20 years, America’s favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet has been serving up a feast of music and comedy to audiences at performing arts centers, music venues, and comedy festivals in every kind of town you can imagine, in more than 40 states! Their award-winning a cappella singing, sharp satire, and over-the-top drag have earned the Kinsey Sicks a diverse and devoted following.

The Kinsey Sicks began in 1993 as a group of friends who went to a Bette Midler concert in San Francisco dressed as the Andrews Sisters. Assuming they’d be among many drag queens, they found themselves to be the only ones (other than Bette, of course). They were approached that night to perform at an upcoming event. Their reply – “we don’t sing” – was quickly disproved when they realized they all had musical backgrounds. They began singing and harmonizing that night, and the seed for the Kinsey Sicks was planted.

In July 1994, the Kinsey Sicks drew a large and enthusiastic crowd at their first public performance on a street corner in San Francisco’s Castro District. Since then, they’ve produced and performed full-length theatrical productions around the country, including the critically acclaimed off-Broadway hit Dragapella! The quartet is also the subject of two feature films: I Wanna Be a Republican (2006) and the documentary Almost Infamous (2008), which chronicles the adventure of the group’s extended run at the Las Vegas Hilton. The latest of the Sicks’ seven CDs, Each Hit & I, came out in 2010. In Electile Dysfunction: The Kinsey Sicks for President, the gals take (a)back America by out-pandering, out-conspiracy theorizing, and out-outlandishing even the most cynical of the current crop of presidential candidates, all in glorious four-part harmony.
