Liberty City Kings, AKA LiCK, is Philly’s only multi-award winning queer drag and burlesque performance troupe. LiCK explores and explodes the performance expectations of drag and burlesque. LiCK’s drag hotties will make you squirm, laugh, and sing along with their lowbrow humor, while their burlesque beauties captivate audiences with their fun, sexy, and downright raunchy shake-and-shimmy numbers proving that drag and burlesque doesn’t need to be high class to be fun!
Liberty City Kings are all about blending, bending, and blurring gender, politics, and satire with live music, drag, burlesque, and good, old-fashioned, raunchy fun! LiCK has been called sassy and sexy, titillating, uncomfortably moist, wildly inappropriate, borderline wrong, and plain old freakin’ funny and that is just by our own members!
Liberty City Kings have produced Dragadelphia, the annual Mr. Philly Drag King Competition, and monthly Vixens & Vagabonds Queer & Kinky Cabaret. In the last few years, they have regularly hosted and performed at the Philly Dyke March and Sister Space Weekend. In addition, LiCK has performed at Sugartown, FUSE Party, the Dive, Dr. Sketchy’s, Pleasure Garden, Woody’s, Sisters, the Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, M Room, Philly Pride, the Scene Party, and many other locations.
Tabu is our current performance home.
LiCK is available for any venue, big or small, though, we have to admit, we are size queens!
