Welcome to Lip Sync Roulette!
What is it?
Lip Sync Roulette is an amazing online social game, designed to test a drag performer's nerve, AND their improvisational skills, all broadcast live for your entertainment!
Players take turns battling it out in a online lip sync battle - But the catch? They don't know what song they're going to be performing, until it starts playing! The winner of each round is determined by your votes, and goes in the running to win ACTUAL money.
How much does it cost?
It costs just as much as any other drag show in the US - As much as you want it to!
Our performers compete for a share of the total Donations generated over the course of the show, so the total prize pool that is up for grabs is entirely dependant on the generosity of the patrons.
If you're still not sure how much to donate, just imagine you're at the bar and you wanna buy a performer a drink after putting on a STELLAR show! (or, to bolster their spirits after a complete flop!) That's usually a good point of reference.
When and where can I watch?
We currently run a live game every Sunday from 7:30, broadcast directly on our facebook page here. That's where you can comment, vote, or follow our donations link to tip the show! You don't even need to buy a ticket, you can just like our page, and we'll send a notification straight to you just before we start!
Do I need to reserve a ticket?
If you're just coming along to watch, and vote, and maybe donate a little, then no! You can just jump on our facebook page (facebook.com/lipsyncroulette/live) to watch our live broadcast!
I'm a drag performer: Can I play?
ABSOLUTELY! If you're a drag performer and you'd like to play with us, register your interest by claiming one of the free tickets on this event! We will send you a link to a conference call to join at least half an hour before the show starts, so be sure that you're stage-ready and online by then!
(we utilise jitsi.meet for all of our streams. It's open-source, free, and accessible from almost any web browser that exists! If you are having any technical issues, we're more than happy to help out during the pre-show meeting.)
First time playing with us?
Here's a few tips and tricks to get you started:
The Playlist (https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0C3d5Bf8Zc1Rbtc4HETFcT?si=FtKpEMIuSPi8CkZwf5FpAw)
We have carefully constructed a playlist of roughly 50 tracks from pop music from all across the board! Some of our performers study it religiously - Some of them blatantly ignore it for the sheer thrill of the ride! The choice is yours! (though we do recommend at least looking at it, just once!)
it's conference calling, for free, from almost any web browser you have access to. We'll send you a link, and a unique password for the week to access the showroom. We recommend you head to their website and create a meeting of your own, just to get a feel for the way it looks and works!
Reserve your ticket
This is a very important step - If you don't take a ticket for the show you want to compete in, you may not be able to participate! We have a maximum capacity of 16 performers every week, so once 16 tickets have been reserved, there are no more registrations available for that show!
(Of course if you're just watching, you don't need to grab a ticket - you can just jump on our Facebook page when the event is starting, and watch the broadcast for free!)
And just remember..... You got this!
Don't be nervous! The idea of roulette is that it levels the playing field! No performer knows what song is coming up, so nobody expects you to know what you're doing! It's a great way to develop your improvisational skills, as well as your stage presence!
Any of our previous winners will tell you - the secret to a spectacular show is owning it. Make the audience love you, good show or bad, and you'll find yourself snatching first place in no time!
