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:
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 Weird:
This little weirdo is so hard to describe! Is she a lobster or a drag queen? Is she a human puppet or a real puppet? Dreams and reality twist around this nugget as she sashays lipsynchs and weirds her way into your heart- open your heart for Franzia Kafka.

The Itsy Bitsies:
These two gals have been pals since they were kids. Now there all grown up and shimmying across stages in the bay. This pint-sized powerhouse duo has dazzled audiences since 2015 and is thrilled to bring their cheeky humor to the Stud.

The Fire:
Fiera burns us up- she's hot, she's spicey, she's on fire- or maybe that's just her blunt. She's got that subtle sway of secret keeper- and the purr of a big cat. Maybe she'll curl up in your lap- if you're lucky.

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
