About This Show

Plus-size gay rapper Big Dipper defies homophobes and celebrates sexuality with his unapologetically graphic lyrics, infectious beats and a body-positive image. You'll find the hiruste emcee busting moves on stage in skin-tight outfits at this live show; a mix of original viral hits, stupid parodies, and tons of sweaty jiggling. Leave your inhibitions at home tonight. 

Big Dipper is a Chicago-born, Los Angeles-based recording artist. His big boy style, outrageous songs, and live shows have made him the go-to bear of raunchy internet rap. 

Big Dipper has an extensive catalog of viral music videos and songs, including his 2017 ode to sparkling water "La Croix Boi." Known for his creative video concepts, you can find him portraying a ravenous boy scout in "Meat Quotient" an oversized banana in "Chunkita" a mermaid in "Vibin" and much more on his YouTube channel: youtube.com/BigDipperMusic. 

Noisey called Big Dipper's life "an ongoing party full of... cute outfits, fierce rhymes, eating candy behind DJ booths, and a ton of hard work." A perfect description for the rapper and DJ, who delivers an impressive stage show that features choreographed dance routines, costume changes and twisted song covers. Big Dipper's live show has been performed all over the United States and in Canada, Australia, Iceland, France, Amsterdam and Sweden.
