Introducing Bunny and Bianca's HOT MESS: The outrageous new Wednesday night drag revue.

Lady Bunny has handpicked some of the city's most talented drag divas for a weekly Wednesday night extravaganza. The ladies include Bianca Del Rio (widely regarded as the quickest wit on the NYC drag scene), Milan (Rupaul Drag Race 4 favorite), Skyla Versai (the talented newcomer from Lips), Sugga Pie Koko (the comedian of the group), the live vocal styling of Epiphany and special guests each week! The 9PM show time is perfect as either a starting point or for those who prefer to make an earlier night of it mid-week. With both solo and production numbers complete with matching costumes, HOT MESS ups the ante for weekly drag reviews. Naughty comedienne Lady Bunny is moonlighting from her critically acclaimed cabaret show That Ain't No Lady! which the NY Times rave review claimed made "Book Of Mormon look like Bambi." She also appears as the Dean of Drag on RuPaul's Drag U.

Pam Ann is the comic creation of Australian comedian Caroline Reid. An emerging icon in gay culture, she portrays the air-hostess Pam Ann, a mixture of comedy, camp and glamour, and a pun on the legendary airline Pan Am. Performances tend to emphasis the vagaries of air travel, including the identifying quirks of various airlines around the world, mixed with a generous dose of ribald humor and double entendre.

Show @ 7:30PM
