Who knew God was a hilarious, Scottish drag queen wearing a ladies’ pastel-colored, flower-power suit complete with shoulder pads from the 1980s? That’s what I found out during Canadian comedian Mike Delamont’s sold-out God is a Scottish Drag Queen performance during the 22nd Annual Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival.
Delamont’s comedic timing was dead-on and covered topics such as music from centuries past to present, including Justin Bieber, which was one of his proudest creations. I’m sure my 6-year-old niece Keira thinks so, too!
I enjoyed discovering that my Scottish heritage was worth celebrating even more during the show! Being a Scot definitely has its privileges, that’s for sure!
Fellow Orlandoans were also teased when the City Beautiful’s ambiance and weather were hot topics. Delamont also made cracks about the locals and different Central Florida areas, which were a real hoot.
He pokes fun at happenings in the Bible and Popes and expresses how Easter is a hard time for God for obvious reasons and can’t understand why people celebrate with candy.
The show also features visual projections and music that enhances the performance by tech-angel Charles Martin, which God calls for assistance from time to time, including when he gets his groove on during the show.
God is eminent and everywhere and has proven that he works in mysterious ways, and even as a humorous, Scottish drag queen overflowing with moxie. You don’t get better than that.
