Event Details

The sensational anti-drag queen David Hoyle presents a very special performance. Expect polemic, pathos, provocative politicking and high comedy.

Hoyle came to prominence in the 1990s with his late night channel4 TV series The Divine David, a kind of anti-drag queen whose lacerating social commentary – targeted both bourgeois Britain and the materialistic-hedonistic gay scene, which he called "the biggest suicide cult in history" .Hoyle killed the Divine David off during a spectacular show at the Streatham Ice Arena in 2000 
He returned to TV screens in 2005 in Chris Morris's Nathan Barley, then began performing live again, under his own name. Hoyle's biting satire, bravura costumes, wicked comic timing and compelling charisma remained intact. he's performed at the Soho Theatre, Chelsea Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain and Victoria & Albert Museum. Hoyle is back, all right. 

"He is raw, sometimes a bit frightening, but also thrilling in his look-no-hands recklessness.” - The Guardian

There is nothing quite like it: bold and unique, electrifying and disarmingly humane” - Time Out

David Hoyle is no drag - The Times
