STRAIGHT OUTTA PARIS is a new live cabaret show from one of the most hilarious and recognizable names from RuPaul's Drag Race herstory: SHANGELA LAQUIFA WADLEY. Titled as an homage to her Texas hometown, Shangela's show was written so "people can know the roots of my rowdiness." A follow-up to her first comedy hit "Halleloosin' It" (now available on DVD in English and Spanish), STRAIGHT OUTTA PARIS will take audiences on a high-speed ride from the backwoods of Paris, Texas to the runways of Drag Race and beyond. Buckle up, honey -- you know this Ho ain't insured!

With a creative mix of stand up comedy, original songs and the electrifying stage performance that Shangela has become known for, this new show promises to be loud, country and out of control... exactly what one would expect from a delusional diva that's STRAIGHT OUTTA PARIS.

As a multi-faceted entertainer, D.J. Pierce (Shangela Laquifa Wadley) goes beyond his genre's classic nightclub performances by stretching his reach to the Hollywood scene both in and out of drag. He has guest starred on every major television network on shows that include: "Bones" (FOX), "Bold And The Beautiful" (CBS), "The Mentalist" (CBS), “2 Broke Girls” (CBS), "Glee" (FOX), "Community" (NBC), and "Detroit 187" (ABC). His cable television credits include Lifetime's "Dance Moms", WE Television's “LA Hair”, and E! Network's “The Soup” and "Hello Ross!" He recently debuted alongside veteran actress Jenifer Lewis in an online scripted series called “Jenifer Lewis and Shangela”, launched a new stand up comedy DVD called “Laquifa is Halleloosin' It!” and has released two songs which were both featured on Lifetime's "Dance Moms." His most well-known credit though is being the only contestant on Rupaul's Drag Race history to compete in two seasons (2 and 3).  For more info on D.J. “Shangela” Pierce, visit
