She's strong like a Kelly Clarkson song and she's gonna show you how to pomade, sashay, and serve up some confidence realness, hunty.

When Netflix launched the Queer Eye reboot last year, a friggin' star was born in Jonathan Van Ness (or JVN for the true stans.)

As Queer Eye's resident beautician, hair guru, pun queen, moisturizer enthusiast, and figure skating goddess, JVN has led men, women, and non-binary folks down the road of fabulosity by tweaking their day-to-day skin and hair care routine.

A select few dates were added to his world tour plans Monday night, meaning JVN will bring his "Road to Beijing" performance, which is described as part stand-up, part "cirque-du-so-gay-realness," to the Fillmore on Nov. 7.

For Van Ness, comedy preceded his Queer Eye moment. He scored an Emmy nomination last year for his longstanding Funny or Die web series, Gay of Thrones, during which he retells an episode of Game of Thrones while beautifying a slew of celebrity guests.

Tickets go on sale starting Wednesday, March 27 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.
