Let’s Make a Wheel of Bingo: A Comedy Show featuring New Orleans’ Todd Thunder and Drag Show featuring New Orlean’s Own Coca Mesa and Tupelo’s GoDiva’s Elaganza Extravaganza

Let’s Make a Wheel of Bingo is New Orleans’ #1 Game Show (in certain lower parishes).

Excitement has never been so naughty ~ your host, the sensational Todd Thunder!

New Orleans Todd Thunder (a.k.a Todd Shaffer) is multi-talented artist and actor. Before moving to New Orleans Todd was director of the Modern Primitive Art Gallery in Atlanta, GA, one of the nation’s leading galleries for outsider art in the south.  He was responsible for gallery operations as well as corporate sales to the House of Blues Collection, the largest public art collection. “Let’s Make a Wheel of Bingo” is his own avant-garde, camp creation, and unique spin on America’s love affair with trivia and the game show!

Following Let’s Make a Wheel of Bingo, it’s drag time with performances by headliner and New Orleans artist Coca Mesa plus Miss Oxford Pride 2017 Baby Holliday, Tupelo’s Kiera Mason, and Memphis Freak Nasty!
