Myra Dubois Ed2016

With so many celebrity deaths in 2016, Myra DuBois sees plenty of vacancies to fill, so she’s here to showcase her talents. She’ll sing, perform poetry, crack out a few dance moves and even prove her game show hosting skills. Although at times this feels a little like a checklist of drag clichés, DuBois drew the best laughs when she went off-script and dished out her razor-sharp wit. If there’s a line in comedy, Myra DuBois likes to dance dangerously close to it in her heels. There are moments of brilliantly caustic humour that are delivered with a punch of shock-factor, which I’m sure converted a few more adMyras to her fan club.
