Make sure you’re looking your best because Queer Eye icon Jonathan Van Ness is bringing his comedy tour to Australia this year. 

The grooming expert, actor, activist, author, podcaster – the list goes on – will begin his wonderfully-named ‘Imaginary Living Room Olympian’ tour in Perth on Friday, September 23rd. JVN will then stop in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney before finishing in Brisbane on Friday, September 30th (see full details below).

It will be the star’s first comedy tour Down Under since the massively successful ‘Road to Beijing’ tour, and it sounds like he’s very excited at the prospect of returning: “Australia is one of the most amazing places and I cannot wait to come back and share my new show with y’all! We’ve been through a lot the last couple of years and now it’s time to catch up and celebrate, queens!”

JVN rose to worldwide fame for his role in the beloved Netflix reboot of Queer Eye. Working alongside food and wine expert Antoni Porowski, fashion expert Tan France, culture expert Karamo Brown, and design expert Bobby Berk, the so-called Fab Five have transformed the looks and lifestyles of so many people in the series’ run.

On his comedy tour, JVN will tumble into fans’ hearts with a special night of gymnastics and hilarious tales, before roundoff back handspring-ing into a stand-up comedy extravaganza. An Olympic-level night level of comedy is promised, in other words.
