Club Clocktower: Kong’s Takeover

Club Clocktower: Kong’s Takeover

Friday, 27 January 2023 at 8pm (Bar open from 7pm)

Welcome to our new series of jazz and cabaret performances at your local theatre.

Club Clocktower is inspired by the Clocktower’s newly restored 1898 Bechstein grand piano and will take place one Friday evening per month.

Kongs is taking over Club Clocktower! Your favourite drag king and drag thing collective, Kong’s Kings, is going west for an evening of subversive drag artistry and debauchery, hosted by the charming surrealist painting come to life, Randy Roy (Packer’s Playhouse).

Soak up the lush cabaret lounge vibes as Kong’s Kings run wild with the kind of camp silliness and creativity that will have you snort laughing your cocktail all over your cheeseboard. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! Featuring irreverent Draglesque Duke and Prince of Paint, Ira Luxuria (Birdoir, The Pelvic Thrusts), theatrical idiot and the hardest working eyebrows in drag, Jet Stir (D.R.A.G.), comedian and Britney fanatic, Jai Rater (MICF Sunanda Loves Britney), and triple threat Justin Teliqure (Kingdom).

Established in 2013, Kong’s Kings (or ‘Kongs’ as they’re affectionately known) is Melbourne’s beloved drag king collective, a drag community championing fave and freshling drag kings, things, queerdos and all fabulous flavours of performance artists. They provide regular performance opportunities for marginalised drag performers and pathways for emerging drag performers onto the queer arts scene. With almost a decade under their belt, Kongs has a reputation for delivering fun, inclusive events, and for being the mentors behind many of your favourite drag artists.
