On Tuesday (June 4), the Drag Race winner announced his new comedy tour, the This Is Wild! World Tour. Set to take place this fall, Bob’s new show will kick off the 35-date North American leg of the tour in Sacramento, Calif., on Sept. 18, before heading to cities including Seattle, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., New York and Los Angeles, before closing out the show at the Theater at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas on Nov. 15.

The new show will see Bob flexing his skills as a multi-hyphenate, including “stand-up comedy, crowd work and music, all while entertaining his audience with the charisma and flair,” according to a press release. In a statement, Bob made it clear just how much fun he intends to have on the road: “If you’ve ever laughed with me on the internet, wait till you see me in person.”

The new North American dates of Bob’s tour join a suite of previously announced shows in Australia, set to begin in Brisbane on July 18 at the QPAC Concert Hall. The star will perform shows throughout the month in Sydney and Melbourne before closing out at the Astor Theater in Perth on July 24.

Bob spent the last year on the road with Madonna for her Celebration World Tour, serving as the emcee for her decades-spanning setlist. Speaking to Billboard in 2023 before the tour started, Bob said that working with the pop legend had already proven to be a validating experience. “She respects me in a way that doesn’t feel like a novelty,” he said. “Obviously, what matters most is how I feel about myself, but still, a stamp of approval from Madonna is just like … ‘What?!’”
