Malta’s leading drag performer Tolqueen is here for a one-woman show that’ll have you laughing all night long. One Sweaty Lady will make your sides hurt so much you will suspect an appendicitis attack. But you won’t really get one, don’t worry.
This playful stand-up comedy show is a not-to-be-missed performance by Lovin Malta’s in-house cutie Chucky Bartolo, and there will also be a Saturday show just in case you can’t make it on Sunday.
