The Roast of Peaches Christ

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Peaches Christ has been shocking and entertaining people from all over the world with her unique combination of Golden Age Hollywood and Slasher Horror humor for more than 20 years. The alter-ego of Joshua Grannell, who turns 45 this night, Peaches Christ is a San Francisco treasure, one of its deepest, darkest jewels that has had audiences rolling in the seats and aisles of both The Castro and the late-lamented Bridge, where her now legendary cult movie series, "Midnight Mass," was born back in the summer of 1998. We invite you to come to The Castro tonight for this celebration, destruction, and rebuilding-with-love of all things Peaches Christ as we roast this Bloody Queen of Queens within an inch of her life. Some of her nearest and dearest friends are here for this one-night-only experience, bound to keep us all laughing through the rest of the year with brilliant zingers and one-liners like only a roast of this magnitude can do. Confirmed roasters include Clea DuVall, Heklina, Heather Matarazzo, Jinkx Monsoon, Cassandra Peterson (aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark), Sister Roma, Mink Stole, and Roast Mistress Coco Peru, and special surprise guests!  Co-presented by Popscene
