THE JUNIOR MINTT SHOW is a new late show experience centering drag legend, Trans activist and professional businesswoman, Junior Mintt. THE JUNIOR MINTT SHOW is reclaiming its time and is taking its spot in the late show game. Featuring a company of Queer, Black and baddie creatives coming together to flip the script on the late night genre and pay tribute to the camp faves that paved the way. Each episode of THE JUNIOR MINTT SHOW will feature its own queer combination of gut-busting sketches, juicy games, moving and memeable interview segments, jaw-dropping drag performances and a WHOLE lot of ass. Watch your back, James Corden, Junior’s coming for ya!
The all-Black and all-Queer writers room of THE JUNIOR MINTT SHOW includes Dondré Taylor-Stewart (Marvel’s Runaways, Turnt), Ashley Dixon (The Groundlings, The Ashley Show), Wesley Olivier Graham Garlington aka Klondyke (Takes the Take, The Hang), Lovingkindness (Raising Dion, Pose, Send Help) and Michael Love Michael (“To Build A House”, “XO”). The series is produced by co-creator SRĐA (NUBIA, Theater for One), Dominique Bañas (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and Em Newman (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert).
Built around the belief that a chair at the table should be built before waiting to be offered, THE JUNIOR MINTT SHOW is proud to be independently produced and community driven. A gag-worthy raffle featuring community sponsors: Ursula, ISLY, HOMOCO, The Gumbo, Prince Peacock, Zaddy Earth, Dyke Beer and Essentially Charlie will be held at the live episode taping, in addition to photo opportunities, stand up comedy and more. Please put your hands together for the new ass of late night!
