The Clown:
Your emcee Jillian Gnarling- a soft ghoul with a sharp tongue. Both a siren and a monster by the end of the night you'll be wrapped around her fingers, all of them

The Show Girl:
Churro has turned the local drag scene upside down with her highly choreographed performances, her quick wit and faster thighs. She's all razzle dazzle, guyliner and showbiz.

The Weirdo:
Vanity paints her face for the back row- reminding us of that Goth girl from high school smoking cloves and shooting daggers from her eyes. Her lip synchs will leave your head spinning and her hairography is simply beyond.

The Princess:
God's Lil Princess has the biting wit well weathered queen, the beauty of an ingenue and the moves of a video girl. She's more beautiful than most and thirsty af.

The Chameleon:
Lisa Frankenstein is a shapeshifter- from soft damsel to fierce creature- we never know how she will look or who she will be- but we do know she will be funny, with tight moves a small frame and a big personality.

Door Host:
Hollywood Texas is the best of both places- Glamourful and tawdry like Hollywood and Big and Characterful like Texas. She'll shine your coins and show you to your seat- she also has the lucky ticket.
