The Homosexual Agenda
Wendy Ho and a Dinner Show
THE HO, FO SHO
She's a low-down dirty diva, is what. She's what the kids these days are calling "a flipping YouTube sensation!" In fact, that's how I discovered Wendy—a close friend of mine/kid these days flipped all out, "OMIGAWD, WENDY HO is coming! OMG OMG OMGz!" Of course, my curiosity got a big boner, and I was avocationally obliged to delve into the issue. Who and/or what is a Wendy Ho? What does she want? Where does she come from? What is her business? Who are her people? Where are her manners? Three zillion YouTube views and a conversation with Miss Ho later, this:
Mrs. Ho (yes, the Ho is a fine upstanding married lady) is based in LA. She has worked with Vicky Vox and other big-name drag artists in clubs and cabarets, but it is crucial to note for our purposes that—no!—SHE IS NOT A DRAG QUEEN! (I repeat: NOT a drag queen! Crazy, right?) By way of comparison, she could be called a ghetto-mouthed Lady Rizo with a finely honed sense of poop humor, or like an attractive Peaches: all glamour, glitter, scat, vagina, and sass. (Sounds much like a drag queen, sans the vajeen—I KNOW!—but trust me on this, kitten.)
Her songs are bouncy and funny and vulgar vignettes: potty jokes and sex jokes rapped to a bouncy beat. ("When I shit my pants? I just shake it out the leg." Chorus: "Shake it out the leg! Shake it out the leg!") It's a silly and sickening sort of magic that makes your heart blossom with naughty glee—you just can't help grinning your face off. Of course, Wendy will be singing her "not suitable for anywhere" hits, including the ratchet-assed "Bitch, I Stole Yo Purse," the cautionary tale "Poop Noodle," the often interpreted, never duplicated "Fuck Me," and her newest single, "Public Place." (Oh! And Mizz Ho tells me she might even have a new Miley Cyrus parody to test out, so if lolling tongues gross you out or you have a phobia of big foam fingers, perhaps you should avert your delicate eyes.)
Even though Wendy is definitely not a queen (I KNOW!), a gaggling peck of local drag talent is set to accompany her: the eternally trashy Honey Bucket, Sashay Supernova, towering Mama Tits, Lady Chablis, and DonnaTella Howe, along with EmpeROAR Fabulous, James Majesty-St. James, and Kiara Leviathan. Mrs. Ho promises that she'll have us "queefing with delight" (quite a challenge), and tells us, "YOU BETTA LUBE!!" Always fantastic advice. Triple Door, 8 pm, $20, 21+.
