It was back in August that we reported on an announcement by cable network Vice that The Trixie & Katya Show would be premiering this fall. After nearly 60 episodes of the World of Wonder-produced web series UNHhhh, two of our favorite RuPaul’s Drag Race alumnae are moving to the big leagues, and we couldn’t be more excited. The Trixie & Katya Show trailer alone left us gasping for air. Is there anything more funny than these two total weirdos?
Still produced by World of Wonder, the L.A.-based production house responsible for bringing us Drag Race, the new Vice series will premiere Wednesday, Nov. 15.
In the same vein as UNHhhh, the Vice series will see Trixie and Katya cover a wide range of topics. The original tagline for the series — “the show where we talk about whatever we want, because it’s our show, not yours” — still rings true, rest assured.
Watch The Trixie & Katya Show trailer here:
After previewing the new show’s first three episodes, we can confirm that it’s filled with the same style of irreverent humor we all came to love while watching UNHhhh.
Much like on the original web series, each episode of The Trixie & Katya Show is based on a theme. The series premiere, titled “Hooking Up,” centers around gay sex in the age of apps, for example. Episode two, titled “Death,” covers everything from deadly diseases to a game called “He Dead?” And episode three, titled “Porn,” touches on the importance of adult films and even sees the Drag Race duo make a porno themselves.
Those who were fans of UNHhhh will be happy to see the addition of fun regular segments to The Trixie & Katya Show. Among those segments are a couple called “Male Bag” and “Asking for a Friend” that involve fan interaction. We even get to see Trixie and Katya out of drag, as “men on the street Brian and Brian,” interviewing passers-by on Hollywood Boulevard.
