Bianca Del Rio, Lady Bunny unite for explicit HHN: Hateful Hags Network TV special
Drag superstars promise insults, dirty jokes, and a musical number in a faux newsroom.
If you're looking for a pair of powerful voices who can unite the country in peace at one of the most divisive points in American history, look well beyond RuPaul's Drag Race winner Bianca Del Rio and Lady Bunny's latest project, which promises plenty of hateful rhetoric to compliment the chaos of 2020.
EW can exclusively announce that the drag superstars (and longtime friends) will reunite for HHN: Hateful Hags Network, a Vimeo comedy special that combines the familiar comforts of a news program with the leading ladies' comedy slam stylings.
Premiering Thursday, Nov. 12 at 8 p.m. on Vimeo, the HHN: Hateful Hags Network sees producer-stars Del Rio and Bunny anchoring a newsroom where the only headlines are insults and dirty jokes, with extra gags, costume changes, and a musical number by a surprise guest in the mix as well.
“Enough with COVID and politics. It’s time for something really important… back-stabbing drag queens!” Bunny says of the special, while Del Rio adds: "Due to COVID, some Drag Race queens have opened OnlyFans accounts. Bunny and I would never do that. Not because of any moral objections — because we're ugly!"
Best known for winning RuPaul's Drag Race season 6, Del Rio has since gone on to become one of the world's most successful drag acts, having performed sold-out comedy sets in iconic venues like Carnegie Hall and Wembley Arena on top of starring in two independent Hurricane Bianca feature films, authoring the Blame It On Bianca Del Rio book, and making her West End stage debut in Everybody's Talking About Jamie.
A renowned icon in the LGBTQ community, Lady Bunny created New York City's legendary Wigstock festival, which was the focal subject of two documentary films: 1995's Wigstock: The Movie and Wig, which premiered on HBO in 2019.
Tickets for HHN: Hateful Hags Network are available on Vimeo here ahead of the special's premiere next Thursday.
