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 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.

The Mary:
Mary Vice is swivels, swishes, shifts and shakes- she's a murderous lipsyncher with a lithe leg, soft step and fierce face. Sought after and sensuous when she's done with you you'll be a melty little puddle of wiggly jello in the palm of her hand.

The Snack:
Oh girl, you hungry? Do you want some of these spicy cheetos? Do you want some of this chocolate milk? Gummy Sharks? Hershey Bar? Oh girl, we got plenty of Snaxx and she tastes goooood.

The Velvet:
Smokey, velvety, Dark. Voodonna moves through a room like smoke, she brushes past you like velvet and her looks smolder.

The Money:
She's so pretty- and she looks so rich. Like drag rich. Which is 6 drink tickets and a twenty and a friend with a car. That's drag queen rich, and that's what she is. The richest.

With your door host Hollywood Texas
