Diva Kim and I came across the stunning talents of Jerick Hoffer, as Jinkx Monsoon, at Bacon Strip this last holiday season. Bacon Strip is often known for its irreverent take on the traditional Drag Show with the smell of fresh cooked bacon wafting in the air. It makes the smell of cheap booze seem gourmet.
Kim and I prefer the high arts but we like to get a little dirty at Bacon Strip just to see the show. Being introduced to Jinxk as a performer at Bacon Strip’s Christmas Show made our holiday season. First glance at Jinkx is disarming. First, she has the theater magic of making you think she is a girl, and then she starts to sing and you realize you are watching real artistic talent. Jinxk propped up her little piano and played a “12 Gays of Christmas” with a slight giggle and a sly glance at the audience. Her voice is very well trained and can take the audience by surprise. In Jinkx’s second piece, she came out in all black and did an interpretive dance to some Madonna’s “Papa Don’t Preach”.Â WOW!
