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 Intensive Claire is a real life nurse during the day- which is good because her looks are so sickening you are gonna need some care. She's an emcee about town turning looks from Alien to Show girl- careful her tongue is dirty and her care intense.

Kochina Rude has been known to push buttons, her own and other people's. She's a button pusher. A rioter. And a riot.

The Triple:
God said "Let there be fierceness" and there was Militia Towers. When she was born she came out and landed on the floor in the splits, spinning a high pony tail around her head and singing a Nina Simone medley. She lipsynchs like she's here to win, and entertaints with ferocity. You will want to have your dollars, your debt cards, cashier cheques, and money orders ready because she's gonna make you make it rain.

The Lewd:This candy colored queen is a cherry bomb not a cherry sundae. She's rude, and she's lewd and she's tougher than any dude. Lola Lewdivico is cute and crass she'll kick your ass and punch your in the eye with her glamor, and leave you covered in everlasting lipstick kisses.T

he Monster:
What a monster! A goregeous tall, cinched, bewigged, belashed, jeweled, pinched, plucked, sweet, painted Monster. But don't be scared. Scrub out your little hearts and get ready to fall in love with this tall drink of poison- she'll love you till death do you part.
