Santa's chimney is primed for re-entry this season as RuPaul's Drag Race icons Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme prepare to hit the ho-ho-holiday road for the return of their beloved Christmas show.

EW can exclusively reveal tour dates for The Return of The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show, LIVE!, the actors' upcoming international performances of the show. The first set kicks off Nov. 13 in the United Kingdom before the gals make 25 scheduled stops in Europe, Canada, and the United States throughout the end of the year.

In an exclusive video preview above, the duo promises a post-apocalypse-mas extravaganza that's sure to fill your stocking with joy following "a yearlong hibernation," they joke.

"After a year in captivity, Jinkx and I are bustin' at the seams and rarin' to go! Waiting for Santa is nothing compared to the excitement I feel to be back in theaters, sharing the holidays with the chosen family we've collected around the globe!" BenDeLaCreme says.

Adds Monsoon, "I'm thrilled to be back on tour with my sister DeLa, celebrating the holidays the way I was meant to: boozed up, bawdy, and on display!"

Produced, directed, and co-written by BenDeLaCreme, The Return of The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show, LIVE! not only marks the long-awaited, in-person revival of their traditional yuletide performances, but also the biggest run of the shows to date. Fans can expect the queens' signature whip-smart comedy, new songs, and perennial favorites on stage.

The pair first began performing Christmas-themed shows three years ago, including To Jesus, Thanks for Everything in 2018 and All I Want for Christmas Is Attention in 2019. And attention they received, particularly from writer-director Clea DuVall, who was so impressed with their performances that she wrote small parts for the queens in her 2020 Kristen Stewart–starring LGBTQIA+ holiday rom-com Happiest Season.
