If Drag Race ended tomorrow, we’d be sad for sure. But we’d also cope in the comfort that jaw-dropping entertainment with high camp value can still be found from two of our all-time favorite cast members—and one of the greatest comedic duos of our generation.
That’s may sound like hyperbole, but we stand by our evaluation.
Separately, Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme give us the giggles something fierce. Together, however, there’s such a cheeky Baby Jane-level chemistry between the two that we nearly pee our pants—or worse yet, spill our Tito’s-spiked egg nog—whenever they start an onscreen tiff or harmonize sweetly while giving each other major Mean Girls side eye.
Out today, The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Special now officially ranks as our all-time favorite, insanely irreverent and deliciously ridiculous yuletide extravaganza. Sorry, The Star Wars Holiday Special. Even Bea Arthur the bartender can’t elevate you above your new #2 ranking.
We received an early copy of the on-demand video and it took everything in our power not to watch it on repeat the entire Thanksgiving week. From the incredible production values and Cher-worthy number of costume changes to the highlarious hijinx and sacrilegious shenanigans, it checks every single box for what we love in a candy cane-scented TV show.
The cost to rent the musical special for 48 hours is only $13.99, quite the bargain for a little more than an hour’s worth of joke-packed comedy. Plus, you can support these queens further by purchasing some of their holiday merch, including face masks, ornaments and gift wrap.
You’ll probably want the digital soundtrack, too, but you’ll have to wait until December 11 for that.
Or just call us up for a serenade because we’ve been singing a few of the show’s tunes nonstop for a week now.
