Drag Donald Comes To Leicester As Part Of The Comedy Festival.
Super entertaining comedy drag act ROLAND SAUNDERS An act that’s a little different from the norm. A political and public figure satire clown impressionist that doesn’t actually even say a word.
Takes you on a journey from Donald Trump to amongst many others, Margaret Thatcher, Boris and Mary Berry. A human Spitting Image where the outrageousness is celebrated, underlined and lampooned.

TIME OUT MAGAZINE : “Best of all is a heat where a drag Donald Trump takes to the stage”
ATTITUDE MAGAZINE: “TV TV did a Mary Poppins pulling out a series of looks from a tiny bag, switching effortlessly between Donald Trump and Boris Johnson cutting their comments on immigration together into a topical and entertaining performance, with added Elton John for glam.”
CHORTLE: “somewhere between camp drag cabaret and paper costume quick-change artiste Ennio Marchetto, but is very much unique… and very silly.” Steve Bennett
“It’s a great, great show – really special and really looking forward to bringing it to Leicester, bigly. You might even see my wife Melania if you’re lucky, as she does like shopping.”
