Widely known and loved from previous years and performances in Puerto Vallarta, this comedy duo once again have united to show off their impressionist talents with their new show that is currently a big hit with audiences!

In their show, Joanna and Chi Chi impersonate side by side with dueling parodies of Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland, Tina Turner, Amy Winehouse, Cher, Katy Perry, Bette Davis, Eartha Kitt, Shirley Bassey and Little Mermaid’s, Ursula. They even do a male comedy mashup with Elvis, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash and Bruce Springsteen. They’ll keep you in comedy heaven with their antics!
In past years in Puerto Vallarta, Joanna and Chi Chi were staples at venues like The Palm Cabaret and Bar and The Red Room at Act II Entertainment. This season they have successfully brought their talents to Blue Chairs Resort with sold-out performances and great reviews. Emmy Award-winning writer, Chi Chi Rones, known as the “Spitfire Latina from Tijuana”, sings, dances and tells funny and touching stories. Joanna has performed for 8 years in Vallarta with her wild and wacky impressions of celebrities. This show is live singing and entertainment at it’s best, even winning Tripadvisor’s best drag show for 2013-2014.
