In addition to the Summer Olympics and Leap Day Williams, one of the things you can rely on to appear on a quadrennial basis is the fake Presidential campaign, typically done for comedic purposes. (I guess there are real Presidential campaigns too, but they're usually just depressing.) You've seen it more than once, whether in the comics or in beer advertisements or whatnot, the "_____ for President!" gags.
But supposing you're an a cappella drag troupe that describes yourself as America's Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet, and you can't help but notice that there's only a single consonant's difference between "erection" and "election." That's just too good to pass up! So why not go both ways, so to speak? The Kinsey Sicks are doing just that, with Electile Dysfunction: The Kinsey Sicks for President.
But political drag performance done with live, four-part a cappella harmony? That's where The Kinsey Sicks win. It's not all necessarily cutting-edge commentary, but it doesn't have to be, and it still beats Sharon Needles any day of the week.
Electile Dysfunction: The Kinsey Sicks for President runs through Sunday, August 19 at The Rrazz Room at Hotel Nikko, 222 Mason St (at O'Farrell). Tickets are $35-$40.
