Atlanta drag roasts 20 years of notorious NPB

Nothing says, “Girl, you’ve been around forever!” like queens giving you a piece of their minds. But if your drag persona is almost old enough to drink on its own like Nicole Paige Brooks, it’s time for a roast.

Now with two decades of drag under her belt, the “Rupaul’s Drag Race” alum famously of “At-lan-ta-Geor-gia” (top photo) took her licks from drag frenemies old and new on Wednesday at Jungle.

Fellow “Drag Race” alum Phoenix served as emcee, and roasters included Bill Kaelin, EJ Aviance, Alissah Brooks, Edie Cheezburger, Princess Charles, Brigitte Bidet, Monica Van Pelt and Destiny Brooks.

From her habits to her accomplishments, nothing was off limits as the queens read NPB for filth. Luckily, the guest of honor was given the last word and thanked her fans for 20 years of memorable drag.

We remember the years fondly as well – whether she’s serving NOH8, public shame, bingo love, or elected official lust. Thanks indeed for those unforgettable photo opps, Nicole. Below are some new ones from Wednesday's roast.
