About The Kings
Manish Interest is a Sri Lankan born drag king who has grown up on Dharug land. He loves to blur the line between pleasure and political. You’ll be learning and yearning as he dances his way into your heart.
Papi Chulo (aka Natali Caro) is an actor, comedian, DJ, drag king, performer, writer and producer. Papi is the lucky dip of performers; you never know what you’re going to get. They’re the master of sex appeal and comedy, mixing song, parody and impressions.
Chad Love is a singing, swinging King. With a passion for musical parody and brightly coloured appendages, he will croon and charm you to make sure you are left toe-tapping or humming along at the very least. Chad has appeared across queer events in Sydney including The Kings at Giant Dwarf, Sydney Kings at The Vanguard, Butch Fashion Show and Queer Screen’s Mardi Gras Film Festival.
George Dykeal is an up-and-coming king from Sydney. He’s made appearances at The Kings, HeapsGay, Queer as Fvck, GAG, and probably on an Instagram feed near you.
Big Rod (Host)
Big Rod is the founder and host of The Kings – Australia’s favourite regular drag king show. He has been strutting his stuff on stage for yonks, and loves being an all singing, terrible dancing, comedy king.
