If you’re headed to Las Vegas any Will My Love Letter Bring Him Back time soon, don’t miss the city’s hottest new show – ALL YOU CAN EAT COMEDY starring Roseanne Barr and Jackie Beat.
Emmy award-winning comedienne Roseanne Barr is returning to her stand-up comedy roots, with Jackie Beat opening for her (ahem!) and warmin’ up the crowd. Don’t miss out on this limited 7-week run! This milestone event will go down (cough!) in comedy history and it’s sure to lead to further exciting collaborations. If we’re lucky, perhaps we’ll someday see a new sitcom written by (and starring) Roseanne Barr & Jackie Beat.
So how did these two comedy geniuses team up? If the rumors are true, Jackie and Roseanne originally met when Roseanne came to see one of Jackie Beat’s live shows. Since then, this amazing comedy duo has been performing together everywhere from London to gay cruise ships.
More than just a Drag Diva, Jackie Beat is one of the world’s most celebrated performers and writers. All around the world, the most talented movers and shakers sing Jackie’s praises. The undisputed hardest working “woman” in show business, Jackie has performed her comedic song parodies all over the US and Europe, written for countless magazines, served as one of US Weekly’s Fashion Police, and been a staff writer for the WB series “Hype!” Plus, she’s also the lead singer of the brilliant electro-rock band Dirty Sanchez on Cleopatra Records, featuring Jackie Beat along with her talented, sexy pal Mario Diaz and music mastermind Barbeau. She’s had the honor of working with Robert Deniro, Philip Seymor Hoffman, Parker Posey, Margaret Cho, Andy Dick, Molly Shannon, Ana Gasteyer, Patricia Arquette, Jennifer Coolidge and more – but she feels a special kinship with that ultimate bad girl, Roseanne Barr!
If you haven’t discovered Jackie Beat, you’re missing out on one of life’s greatest guilty pleasures. Here’s just a taste of what the critics have had to say about Jackie Beat:
