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:
Your emcee VivvyAnne ForeverMORE! is made of jokes and desperation. One of the co-owners of the Stud Bar she's cut her teeth on this stage for ten years, and has the mouthy splinters to prove it. Quick witted and dry as California in summer her awkwardness is only surpassed by her desire for your love.

The á la mode:
Yves Saint Croissant moved to SF to chase the glittery dreams of Drag Queenery. Not since the 1906 earthquake has the town been this on fire! She emcees SF's Pride Stage and freaks out audiences everywhere with her impeccable looks and visceral performances.

The Mustache:
Mama Celeste has a thing for pasta. And Pizza. If San Francisco is Mario she's a dragged out Luigi, tall, lithe, 2 dimensional and handy with the plumbing. Co-Producer of Oaklash (SF's only Drag Festival) she's a mover, a shaker and always a second placer.

The Cupcake:
Vanilla Meringue is light and frothy- a cupcake in a cupcake dress with the softest creamiest skin. But don't let her demure diabetes inducing décollage fool you- under all her fluff and frills she's one ookie cookie.

The Riot:
You always know when Persia's in the room- her laugh rings out clear like a siren. The good kind. Her numbers make us want to dance, laugh, cry and get together- because a riotous party is about to rush in, riding her coattails, or more like, her petticoats.

With your door host Hollywood Texas
