'RuPaul's Drag Race' star Katya brings her comedy tour to Orlando's Plaza Live this summer


Drag legend Yekaterina Petrovna Zamolodchikova (but you can just call her Katya) is bringing her "Help Me, I'm Dying" comedy tour to Orlando's Plaza Live on Aug. 5.

The RuPaul's Drag Race Miss Congeniality and All Stars finalist promises a "multi-media, multi-character, multi-faceted live stage show."

"A fusion of stand-up comedy, story-telling, video, and live dancerly-ish action and music that talks about what it means to be a woman, from the perspective of a person that dresses up like one," the event says.

The drag persona of Boston performer Brian McCook has her own show on Viceland with fellow drag queen Trixie Mattel, as well as the duo's iconic web series UNHhhh.

Catch this Jodie Foster groupie at The Plaza Live, 425 N. Bumby Ave., on Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $25 to $150.
