Blood in the Water
Queens. Drag. Sea creatures.
Hammerheads, cuttlefish, cone snails — turns out those aquatic assholes are thirsty, flirty, and fascinating. NYC’s top Drag Queens (Kiko Soirée, Junior Mintt, and Adele Computer) are stepping up to their computer screens for a livestream celebration of the ocean’s saltiest creatures. Hosted by Mike Kelton and accompanied by our best and brightest marine biologists (including Dr. Sarah McAnulty, Dr. Joshua Drew, and Dr. Sabah Ul-Hasan), these queens are raising a glass the weirdest and wildest creatures in the deep blue sea — you’ll be gagged to the gills.

Mike Kelton is a Brooklyn-based comedian, producer, writer/director, and TV host, with the most recent title of Co-Executive Producer on TLC’s special Drag Me Down the Aisle. Prior to the TLC project, he Executive Produced and Co-Created the hit FUSION series, Shade: Queens of NYC. He previously worked as a creator and host for both MTV & Logo Digital, which garnered him a Cynopsis Social Good Award for his Logo series Fill in the Blank. Born out of a genuine love for all things spiritual, last year, Mike launched his original podcast BEYOND with Mike Kelton to an incredibly engaged audience — people genuinely have loved hearing Mike work through his everyday problems via supernatural means and once Mercury is out of retrograde, he will continue working on the much anticipated second season set to launch this coming fall on the Forever Dog Podcast Network. You can see Mike perform comedy live all around the city and at The Upright Citizens Brigade every Saturday night at 10pm with What I Did For Love.
About the Queens
Kiko Soirée: Kiko has learned a lot in quarantine, such as: how to make bean dip, poach eggs, and gather fabric for a skirt but unfortunately, she still knows absolutely nothing about sharks! Luckily, with the help of a scientist friend, she’ll become an overnight expert and be ready to preach the good gospel of the ocean’s largest fishes. From our living room to yours, see you online!
Junior Mintt: chocolate lay in your mouth, minty going down. The same recipe you love with an empowered black trans twist!
Adele Computer is a bearded Brooklyn drag queen, known for her comedic stylings and original music. Her YouTube series “A Very Computer…” has amassed HuNdReDs of views, and her SoundCloud discography has amassed even less. Search “Adele Computer” on all platforms to see and hear more.
