Why come see it?

Ladies, gentlemen, and everyone fabulous in between, Our fabulous performers don’t just ‘do’ drag, oh no! They transform into silver screen sirens, bring down the house with Broadway belters, and give your beloved Disney classics a high-heeled kick in the tutu. But this isn’t just a show, it’s a party, a revolution, a celebration of all things wonderfully outrageous and outlandishly wonderful!

Not just a drag show; our Summer Show is a spectacle that celebrates identity, pays homage to the giants of screen and stage, and breaks boundaries with its daring performances.

”Well what can I say? We hadn’t planned on going in, it was a spur of the moment decision and glad we did. It was great to see Betty Legs and her team back, the show was fabulous as always and nice to get a bit of banter on stage from her too, Not forgetting the lovely Bonnie La Blue behind the Dj box, we had a fab time, so thank you, ❤️"

In 1994, Basil Newby MBE transformed a corner shop into the vibrant Funny Girls, an instant sensation in Blackpool. Soon outgrowing its origins, Funny Girls moved into the historic 1939 Odeon, reborn as the iconic Showbar in 2002. Over time, Funny Girls created unforgettable memories, like their ‘Swine Lake’ performance at the Royal Variety Show and a revealing 2013 documentary.

Celebrating 30 years of unparalleled entertainment in 2024, Funny Girls continues to enchant audiences with legendary performers like DJ ZoeBetty Legs Diamond, and our newest ‘leading lady’ CeCe D’Vyne, promising a bright future of unforgettable moments.

Whether you’re a drag devotee, a Broadway baby, or just in for a good old-fashioned knees-up, we’ve got you covered. Our luminous performers step into the spotlight, giving their all in spectacular renditions of hits from beloved classics such as “A Chorus Line”, “Chicago”, and “Hairspray”. They also embody silver screen sirens like Marilyn Monroe and Meryl Streep. And if that’s not enough to make you swoon, darlings, you’ll be utterly captivated as they bring enchanting scenes from “Aladdin”, “Oliver”, and “The Little Mermaid” to life on stage – each one given a show-stopping, extravagant drag makeover!
