Every Friday we DRAG ALIVE- a variety show for everyone. We welcome those visiting our gorgeous city, those who have never been to a Drag Show before and promise that this will entertain even the most experienced of drag fans.

1 hour of Entertainment featuring SF’s Finest: Gittery Queens, fabulous Freaks and larger than life entertainers. The best show at at the fanciest dive you ever been to.
Since the Stud opened in 1966 it has had a reputation as a place where everyone is welcome- so join us at a show where everyone is welcome.

And if you just want to happy hour about it join us in our front room for drinks and friendship- no cover.

The Clown:
Kochina Rude has been known to push buttons, her own and other people's. She's a button pusher. A rioter. And a riot. She's your tour guide through this night of terror, horrors and good old drag.

The Princess:
God's Lil' Princess is anything but. Sometimes a cowgirl sometimes a crab sometimes super Trish. She's a spastic diva from the underground. Full of jokes and true entertaintment.

The Weird:
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 Sweet:
Roxy-Cotten Candy got the hair flips and fast hips. Tall as a drinka water, or more like soda pop. She's got all the kids jonesing for the sweet stuff. Be careful though she is the gateway drag.

The Classic:
Paige Turner can polish the keys and polish the boards. She's an elegant talent on and off the piano- poised and glamourful- serving you old hollywood and young San Francisco.

With your door host Hollywood Texas
