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.
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.*
