Review: Bailey J Mills @ Leadmill

Drag queen, comedian, sketch artist, internet personality and all-round superstar are just some of the words to describe Bailey J Mills.

Ridiculousness done at its finest is the only way to describe their latest tour titled ‘Unfiltered & Scummy’. 

Down at The Leadmill, it is clear tonight’s audience is the majority of Sheffield’s queer population who have put on their gladrags to give Bailey a warm welcome to the Steel City.

The set kicks off with a sing-song by Brummy queen Pork Elizabeth Pie, who does the most exceptional job warming the crowd up.

Moving through each act, there’s a sense of pure excitement and joy because it’s just not clear what will happen next.

Bailey has brought some of her sketches, which have acquired her millions of views on the internet, to the stage – but we also get to enjoy a sketch of Blind Date and Cheryl-style performances, not only lip-syncing but also paired with a stunning costume and amazing choreography.

Bailey can do silly; Bailey can do funny; Bailey can do bizarre.

But what Bailey always delivers is fierce.
