Well-respected, notoriously scathing drag “Grinch” Jackie Beat is appearing for one night only in SF to throw some shade in the direction of your most treasured holiday-related belief systems. The performer, who's been awarded countless drag-related and theatrical honors and once toured with Roseanne Barr, describes herself as the bastard child of Weird Al Yankovic and Bette Midler. In her one-night, one-woman show, O Holy Hell!, she'll be taking the holidays to task, with satirical carol parodies and all-new comedy material. Beat's been doing original shows every holiday season since 1998, when her takedown was featured in a Catholic League's Report on Anti-Catholicism, which has got to be a pretty high mark for a satirical holiday show. If you're only going to see one drag show this holiday season, and you'd like for it to be this drag show, get your tickets early as she'll probably sell it out.
