The Lady Chablis at Club One

Read our book on Savannah here

Alright, we did it. The show was too expensive and rather bad, as we suspected it would be. Still, we couldn’t leave Savannah without seeing the Lady Chablis at least once.

Lady Chablis

She was the highlight of Saturday night’s two-hour long drag show at Club One. The Lady, who makes her home in Columbia SC, waltzed onto the stage after five other drag queens of varying quality had performed. One of them didn’t know any of the lyrics to the song she was lip-syncing, and that song was Aretha’s Think! Which everyone knows! But whatever: the crowd (middle-aged, white, Mid-Western) was there only to see Miss You-Know-Who.

And Chablis didn’t disappoint. Her act was short, but fun. She looks great; lithe and elegant, and her sassy, dirty banter was hilarious and mildly shocking. She’s a true character, and it’s obvious why John Berendt wanted her in his novel, and Clint Eastwood wanted her in his film.

But let’s cut to the chase. All you really want to know is: would I hit that? The answer is: Yes. Yes, I would totally hit that.

ACH! I’m just joking! Of course I wouldn’t.*

    #1- I find it amusing that the crowd was Mid-Westerns! Represent!

    #2- I literally lol’ed with the ‘hit that’ comment. Bravo.

    Funny how it seems she has the Forrest Gump way of posing for pictures! lol

      I wish she would have just posed for me – would have loved spending 30 minutes with her just to take her picture.

    I wish the Lady had performed the entire show! It felt way too short. Although the other ladies were quite entertaining.

    I had the same experience – the show was mildly entertaining, but Chablis was fantastic…even for the short amount of time she performed. There were some rednecks in the audience that night, too, and she made short work of them. Loved the asterik!

    Edited! Too much hate!

    Nick,
    Are you mad or are you jealous? Stop hating!  There is absolutely nothing about this lady that stinks.  Be honest; everyone knows you wish you could be HER!  LOL!

    Two of us ( more than middle-aged and female) ditched our group going to olde lady dinner and attended The Lady’s show.  My friend said that it was the hi-lite of our 8 day trip.  Not only is “The Doll” entertaining, she is (besides being charmingly naughty) very kind to those that she approaches in the audience.  Go see her.

    I gave Lady Chablis a place to lay her head, during my college days at FSU.  She was my dear friend.  I am trying to reconnect and I would love for this message to be relayed to her.  My plans are to come to one of her shows very soon.  If by chance, you read this, girl I would love to see you.   Remember me Ruby Daughtry 850-376-3260.  Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    I am going to be in Savannah for a conference in spring of 2014 and would love to see her show.  Does she still perform at The One?  Would love any information.
