Alaska Thunderfuck lets The Other Show have it

The crazies of gay Atlanta’s favorite weekly drag show met their match on Friday. That’s when the Other Show moved to Jungle’s main room for its monthly XXXL show, this time with “RuPaul’s Drag Race” queen Alaska Thunderfuck.

A supersized audience to go with the XXXL brand raised the roof off Jungle. The cast and guest stars cranked up their volume to match, including a crowd pleasing group number to the viral internet song “The Fox” (top photo). When the crowd was primed, Thunderfuck did what superstar special guests do best: She let them have it.

The night included a meet and greet with the headliner and a dance set by DJ King Atlas. Like the Other Show itself, XXXL and its big-name guests have a growing reputation. See what Amanda Lapore dropped last month, and how frothed up Lady Bunny got the crowd at XXXL's debut.
