The winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. Season 4, Danny Beard has a brand-new tour for 2024! 

The show, ‘Straight Expectations’ will see Danny Beard and their full live band perform a night of killer vocals, snappy comedy, put downs and pick me ups.

Join the host of BBC3’s ‘The After Shave’ for an evening of scandalous behaviour, lots of laughs, and an honest insight into what life’s really like as a Z-list ‘celeb’.

Danny takes to the road for their biggest tour to date, kicking off the two-week tour on 4 September at Newbury Corn Exchange before heading to the Liverpool Playhouse on Saturday 14 September.

Drag Race UK Winner, Danny Beard said:

“I’m so excited about my new touring show, ‘Straight Expectations’! It’s going to be a fabulous extravaganza of glitter, glamour and gags.  It’s been one hell of a ride since winning RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, reaching the heady heights of “Celebrity” – whoever said TV was glamorous clearly had never had to do their own make up in a portaloo!

“One of the many highlights of the whole thing was touring the country with my phenomenal band, who obviously knew that leaving the tours of some of the biggest pop stars and most successful musicals was the right thing to do, in favour of supporting a Drag Queen belting out Adele tracks.

“The audiences were electric last year and I can’t wait to see all my fans and make some new ones along the way with this new show.”

2023 saw Danny perform their debut sell out critically acclaimed UK tour and Edinburgh Fringe run, as well as taking to the stage alongside Graham Norton at London’s O2 Arena. In addition to this Danny also made multiple TV appearances including The Weakest Link, Big Brother Late and Live, The Traitors Uncloaked, OH, as well as a cameo role in Channel 4’s soap Hollyoaks!

With over 186,000 Instagram followers and counting, this Liverpool-born performer broke records as the first bearded queen to appear on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK! And the first bearded drag queen to win any Drag Race franchise globally. 

Danny also hosts a weekly LGBTQ+ podcast, The Gossip Gays, which was picked up by the Acast Creator network. Produced by Audio Always, Danny and co-host Billy give us a run down on the week’s news, gossip, as well as turning agony aunt with hilarious consequences. They also hosted a BBC Sounds podcast ‘Danny Beard On Same Sex Love and Marriage’ and BBC Radio 1’s ‘Beginner’s Guide to Eurovision’.

A self-proclaimed ‘shady, singing, cartoon clown’, Danny is a singer and performer with unique flair and humour.  They were a semi-finalist on Britain’s Got Talent and a regular on Manchester’s Drag scene, often appearing at cabaret nights mixing club kid aesthetic with old school drag performance style, as well hosting and headlining pride festivals across the country.
