Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness is bringing his tour to the UK and Ireland.
Queer Eye’s hair stylist pro and one fifth of the Fab Five, Jonathan Van Ness, is in the midst of a comedy tour, Road to Beijing, which will detail his journey to becoming a figure skater.
Jonathan, who recently bravely revealed he’s HIV positive, described the tour as: “Standup comedy meets gymnastics meets a night of glamour.”
But which cities is he bringing the tour to and how can you get tickets?
Here’s all the information you need...
In snippets the Fab Five member has shared on social media from his tour, he explains how he remains so body confident and where that confidence stems from.
In one trailer for the tour he says: “I learned to love my body all the way to the point where I developed what I can only presume is reverse body dysmorphia.”
He also shows off the gymnastics and skating moves he learnt while training to become a figure skater.
Jonathan’s first show in the UK is 16 October at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, but he’ll also be heading to Glasgow, London and Manchester.
The star has a jam packed schedule, with more than one show per day over just a few days.
The dates and locations of the shows are listed below:
16 October 17:30 - Olympia Theatre, Dublin
16 October 19:00 - Olympia Theatre, Dublin
16 October 21:45 - Olympia Theatre, Dublin

Tickets for Jonathan’s tour are still available, with prices starting from £31.75 and ranging to £141 at venues around the UK and Ireland.
He’s spent the past few months taking the tour across America.
Jonathan is doing a book tour, however only at some locations in the US.
He took a short break from the tour after publicly sharing the news he’s HIV positive, to rest up and spend time with his mum, before throwing himself into the tour schedule.
