Gurl Guide

Drag artist Carl McDonald (Carlotta Gurl) hails from Eastern Canada and for over 15 years has been amazing audiences everywhere with his incredible female impersonations of some of the world’s most loved performers.

In addition to performing and appearing at corporate events, special events and private parties here in Vancouver, BC, Carlotta has been getting quite a name on stages in other Canadian cities, and across the border in the USA.

A consistently dynamic performer, both Carl and Carlotta are involved in doing feature work within Vancouver’s burgeoning film and television industry, and have had starring roles in movies such as “Stark Raving Mad”, “Thralls” and TV shows such as “Caprica” and “The L Word”.

Always a professional, in 2016 Carlotta began working with a more corporate clientele, thanks to the creation of Vancouver drag booking house Tuck Entertainment. Tuck Entertainment specializes in guiding drag artists into and through the world of corporate drag bookings, with an aim to elevating the drag profession as a whole.With Tuck, Carlotta has worked with the Vancouver Aquarium, the Pacific Gateway Hotel and many other valued clients.

She works regularly with TD, and can be seen escorting their float through Vancouver’s Pride parade in her own exuberant style. Carlotta also works with Tourism Vancouver, travel Marketing, and Smack Productions.

A strong advocate for many charities, Carlotta lends her talents and regularly gives her time to help raise money for many deserving causes, including Vancouver Friends For Life, where she has been a recurring hostess for their weekly Bingo For Life event.

On the drag stage front, Carlotta currently hosts and performs in two of Vancouver’s most popular weekly cabaret-style shows:

Werk it Wednesdays – with co-host Alma Bitches
Wednesday nights at The Junction

Absolutly Dragulous
Saturday nights at The Junction

You can also catch Carlotta hosting Bingo for Life each Wednesday night at Mary’s on Davie Street.
