“A cross between Dame Edna and Billy Connolly with a dollop of Eddie Izzard.”

From press release:

From critically acclaimed comedian Mike Delamont comes the hit one
man show GOD IS A SCOTTISH DRAG QUEEN. A 2012 Just For Laughs Best Comedy Award Nominee, this show has sold out Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal, and Orlando and will finally make it’s Toronto debut as part of the 2013 Toronto Fringe Festival.

Based on a character created by comedian Mike Delamont and Ride The Cyclone crator Jacob Richmond, God, dressed in a floral power suit, comes down to skewer everything from Justin Bieber and the Mayans to Monkeys and the Pope in an unforgettable hour of hilarity.

God Is A Scottish Drag Queen was created in the hit cabaret Atomic Vaudeville. Since it’s premiere in 2011 GIASDQ has sold out every festival to date and has won Pick of the Fringe in Victoria and Vancouver, Patrons Pick and Critics Choice Best Comedy in Orlando, and was nominated for Best English Production by Centaur Theatre and Best Comedy by Just for Laughs in Montreal.

Most recently Mike has performed at Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City and at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Toronto will be Mike’s 5th stop on his 23 city North American tour.
