THE SHOW MUST GO ON! A CAR ACCIDENT AND THREE FRACTURED RIBS WON’T STOP TRAMPOLINA!

Nov 1, 2017

As you may have heard, our fabulous Trampolina/Spencer was hospitalized after her and Trixie/Jeff's Uber was in a car crash on the way to the airport for our gig in Kutztown, PA. Three fractured ribs and a hospital stay later, Trampy is determined to do the show, although we’ve postponed the opening night of our Puerto Vallarta run until November 6. Will Trampy be seated the whole time? Or will she be lying down on a fabulous gurney/chaise lounge? How exactly will we do this show? Believe us, we’re as excited to find out as you are. And although Trixie wasn't hospitalized, will her cuts, bruises, and back spasms impede her normally flawless ability to fall instantaneously to her knees?

Send Trampolina & Trixie some love and come find out for yourself! We have over 40 shows in November and December in Puerto Vallarta and Ajijic, Mexico; Eugene, OR; New York City; and San Francisco and Cotati, CA. Check out the calendar page for details.

Harvard Law School Inexplicable Invites The Kinsey Sicks to Perform at 200th Anniversary Gala!

Sep 8, 2017

Las Vegas odds-makers are placing bets: Can America’s Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet ruin in 20 minutes the reputation that Harvard Law School has taken 200 years to build?

One thousand delighted and/or scandalized Harvard Law students, faculty and esteemed alumni will find out next week Friday, September 15. The event, hosted by HLS alumnus and CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, will feature Harvard Law School’s most distinguished (and in The Kinseys’ case; most scandalous) alumni in the field of the arts and entertainment. The law school counts among its alumni numerous Presidents, Senators, Governors, two thirds of the current US Supreme Court, and, most prestigiously, one singing drag queen, The Kinsey Sicks’ very own Rachel.

The event is restricted to members of the Harvard Law School community (“An oxymoron if ever there were one,” notes Rachel.) But news of the conflagration is sure to escape. Stay tuned.

Rachel's Guest Column on the Ethics of Comedy!

Aug 5, 2017

Ben Schatz, AKA Rachel, writes an important article in The Skinny, Scotland premier monthly publication on the arts and culture, for their Comedians on Ethics column to discuss morally responsible comedy: 

"Making people laugh doesn’t get you off the hook. Smart comics think about what we say. If we want to offend people — and I offend people on an hourly basis — we owe it to ourselves and our audience to decide whom we want to offend and why."
