Releasing their first Christmas record back in 2001, "Do You Hear What We Hear?," the duo became a staple holiday favorite for their unique holiday cabaret shows.
For over 25 years, their acts have remained iconic masterpieces in the world of drag.

Their holiday extravaganzas have definitely become legendary spectaculars, raved by the gays across the country.
Having staged their massive comeback two years ago, their presence reignited gay hearts, bringing a dazzling Christmas back to the community. In an interview with Hollywood Soapbox, "Kiki and Herb have always been about the community that surrounds them, so at Christmas a big part of the show for me is giving comfort and community to people who may not have that in their families or lives," shared Kenny. "We’re all in this together, and I don’t care who you are, whether you celebrate or not, love it or hate it, Christmas is in your face. We kind of try to make room for all perspectives — even the sappy ones," added Viv.
