VERNON - The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre proudly presents God is a Scottish Drag Queen on Friday Oct. 28, 2016 at 8 p.m.
From critically acclaimed and award winning comedian Mike Delamont comes the hit one-man show God is a Scottish Drag Queen. God, dressed in a floral power suit, comes to skewer everything from Justin Bieber to the Pope in an unforgettable night of laughter.
This 70 minute one-man show has received such acclaim as Critics Choice Best Comedy at the Orlando Fringe Festival, Pick of the Fringe in Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Orlando, and nominees for Best English Production at the Centaur Theatre and Best Comedy at Just For Laughs in Montreal. The award winning show has now sold out major houses across North America.
God is a Scottish Drag Queen is based on the character created by comedian Mike Delamont and playwrite Jacob Richmond for the hit cult cabaret Atomic Vaudeville. In 2011, Delamont turned all of the sketches he had written into a full hour long show and began to tour it on the Fringe Festival circuit to massive critical acclaim. Today, God is a Scottish Drag Queen (and its sequels) are among of the highest grossing shows on the international fringe circuit and Delamont is an 18-time Best of the Fest winner.

He has appeared on CBC's The Debaters, SiriusXM's Top Comic, Halifax Comedy Festival, Just For Laughs and is a three time Canadian Comedy Award Nominee.

As a corporate clean comedian, Mike has toured with the Investors Group National Comedy Tour in both 2013 and 2014.
