God is A Scottish Drag Queen is a stand-up performance by Mike Delamont as, well, God as embodying a Scottish Drag Queen. Simple enough. And talk about an inherently awesome character.
Minutes after walking on stage, Delamont had the entire room bent over in laughter and kept them entranced for the rest of the evening. It’s the show of a potent and lovable, bare-footed and burly man dressed in an 80’s power suit delivering on quick-wit, loud banter and unexpected laughs.
Though I admit, I spent the day drying in the sun and consistently quenching with beer, I guarantee I was not thoroughly enjoying myself alone. Honestly, God had to stop on a few occasions and ask surrounding tables if they were still breathing under that tear-jerking laughter. Naturally, they could barely answer.
Needless to say, I am a new, big fan of Mike Delamont and will definitely be seeing this show again before Fringe is up. In the end, Delamont delivered on everything you hope out of a night of stand-up. Simply put: laughter.
