173 - Jinkx Monsoon

July 11th, 2016

Episode 202 of 218 episodes

Superbly funny and very skilled Jinkx Monsoon won RuPaul’s Drag Race IV, and with long-term collaborator Major Scales is continuing to weave that very public success into an established comedy career. We discuss maintaining individuality within the confines of reality TV, the shared territory between a drag persona and a comic voice, and how transformation affects the true self. We also cover accusations of transphobia, the assumptions made of drag performers’ gender identity, and Jinkxy’s “bitterness towards stupid people”… Contribute to the podcast atwww.comedianscomedian.com/donate Download Stu’s latest comedy album atwww.comedianscomedian.com/shop
