Myra DuBois – Service With A Sneer (Myra DuBois / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013

With her name in flowers like a funeral display, the charming Myra DuBois takes to the stage as only a drunken drag queen can. With her trusty, yet dim-witted, sidekick Thomas on the sound desk, DuBois tells us stories about nothing in particular. With a drink always in her hand (or at least nearby!) she talks us through the witty yet disconnected stories of her life. There’s no theme here, but that doesn’t seem to matter. When she’s not singing (horribly) she engages in some hilarious banter with the audience, which is by far the funniest part of her show. Crude and a little bit bitchy, DuBois is exactly what you need if you’re still up at midnight.

The Voodoo Rooms, until 25 Aug, 12.00am.
