Emmy-nominated television personality, podcaster and hairstylist to the stars, Jonathan Van Ness, is set to bring his Road to Beijing world tour to Australia this February!

As the star of the Emmy-nominated web series Gay of Thrones, and the Emmy-winning reality show Queer Eye, Jonathan Van Ness has become known in the entertainment industry for his fabulous, unstoppable energy. For the first time, he will bring that energy to the stand-up stages in Australia and New Zealand in February 2020, with his unforgettable live show, serving cirque-du-so-gay-realness between stand-up sets so good your face will be in need of a massage from all the smiling. It’s all inspired by his ongoing attempt—and lifelong obsession—to become a figure-skating prodigy just in time for the next Olympic cycle, which just so happens to be in 2022 in Beijing!

As well as shining as Queer Eye’s groomer, hair guru and self-care advocate, Jonathan starred on the Emmy-nominated series “Gay of Thrones” (Funny or Die), a witty social commentary series recapping HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Launched in 2013, the series just wrapped its seventh and final season and garnered Emmy nominations in 2016 and 2018 for ‘Outstanding Short Form Variety Series.’

Van Ness also continues to work on his passion project, his podcast “Getting Curious,” a weekly exploration of all the things Jonathan is curious about. The podcast was listed as one of the Top Podcasts of 2018 by Time Magazine, and recently won the iHeart Radio Award for Best LGBTQ Podcast. 2018 was a breakthrough year for Jonathan, who realized two new passions – for the arts of stand-up comedy and figure skating. Most recently, Jonathan announced that his revelatory memoir, OVER THE TOP, will be released in September 24, 2019.
