BY JAMES ELLIOTThis is not a drill, we repeat, this is not a drill! ‘Queer Eye’ mega-star, Jonathan Van Ness, is bringing his fabulous, unstoppable energy down under for the very first time, serving up cirque-du-so-gay-realness in major cities across both Australia and New Zealand.
The seven-date stand-up tour is set to run in 2020, from Sunday 16th of February through to Friday 28th of February, performing for crowds in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Auckland and Christchurch.
The comedy set aptly named ‘Road to Beijing’, is all inspired by Van Ness’ ongoing attempt — and lifelong obsession — to become a figure-skating prodigy just in time for the next Olympic cycle, which happens to be in Beijing in 2022!
Aside from being Queer Eye’s all-fabulous groomer, hair guru and self-care advocate, Jonathan is the star of the Emmy-nominated web series Gay of Thrones and also continues to work on his passion project, the award-winning podcast “Getting Curious,” a weekly exploration of all the things Jonathan is curious about.
Jonathan is an LGBTI+ icon, a big mood and is truly fabulous – this show is one for the gay calendar that you’re certainly not going to want to miss.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, 2nd of August at 2 pm, so keep hitting the refresh on this page here.
