SassySays.com - Drag History Month - January 22, 2012 - Brini Maxwell
   
Described as part Donna Reed, part Mary Tyler Moore, Maxwell makes kitsch feel classy through her unparalleled personal flair for home design, entertaining and savvy household tips. Inspired by a divine thrift shop purchase of 1950’s nesting bowls, she first began sharing her vintage/classic know-how with other Manhattanites in 1998 through her self-titled cable access television show. With an emphasis on uncompromising fabulousness, Brini quickly garnered a devoted fan base and established herself as the go-to-girl on vintage fashion and mid-century modern treasures. After five years on the local airwaves her show was picked up by the Style Network. The subsequent series has been called a delightful success and has attracted a diverse audience thorough its national platform.
Brini was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised there and the Midwest. She was a child prodigy in the area of domestic science, piping perfect mashed potatoes at the age of five and redesigning the rumpus room in her family home by age 10. At the Fashion Institute of Technology, between spontaneous bouts of cleaning and organizing the student union she achieved a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design. She worked in the fashion industry for 5 years, never finding fulfillment until she started developing her television show.
Brini still lives in the same tiny intricately apportioned New York City apartment used as the set for the original television show. She spends her time between shooting the television show and making personal appearances, doing needlepoint, shopping for inspiration in thrift shops and vintage stores and spending time with friends. She’s currently shopping for a second home in Palm Springs California and looking wistfully at vintage 1960’s convertibles on eBay Motors.

Sweetie, an accomplished entertainer, hostess, and whore, Sweetie is New York’s “big-titted honkey soul momma.” A daughter of the unforgettable drag houses Pyramid and Boy Bar, she has enjoyed success as an iconic club performer, cable television star, stage and motion picture actress, and mother of the infamous tranny fest QUEEN BEE. 


Sweetie gained notoriety at JACKIE 60 as a writer and actress for her irreverent portrayals of tragic billionairess Christina Onassis, social outcast Big Sue, Appalachian earth mother Vernell Puckett, and 1980s fag-hag Heather Peleshock. As a golfclub-wielding “Patsy Ramsey” in the Jackie’s Playhouse presentation of Daddy’s Little Prostitute, Sweetie was seen by millions on the sensational tabloid news program Hard Copy (footage smuggled out by reporters with live cameras in their baseball caps.) As well as live theatre pieces, Sweetie is also touted as one of New York’s most heart-wrenching lip sync artists.

 


Sweetie has appeared in the Motion Pictures: Too Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything Julie NewMar and Starrbooty. As well as the television series “Faking It” and “Project Runway.”
She is the hostess for the Off-Broadway hit show: The Ultimate Drag-Off.

SassySays.com - Drag History Month - January 18, 2012 - Jim Bailey

Jim Bailey loves to perform and has done so for many years. He made his debut in the Las Vegas entertainment scene in 1970. He is a character actor who sings, and is still going strong thirty years later!

Jim Bailey, internationally acclaimed singer, character actor, comedian, has been spellbinding audiences for years. He has appeared in the world’s top venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall, London’s Palladium, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, and over sixteen main showrooms in the top casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Mr. Bailey has elevated the art of character acting to heights never seen previously or since.

An accomplished singer (with an operatic background from Philadelphia Conservatory of Music), as well as a brilliant make-up artist, Mr. Bailey spends numerous hours preparing for each show. In doing so, he is able to recreate the visual presence and vocal techniques of the legendary ladies he brings to the stage. His acting skill, combined with his mastery of voice, make-up, and costumes, put him in a class all his own. The many high points of Mr. Bailey’s career include command performances for Prince Charles and Princess Diana (December 1992), H.M. Queen Elizabeth, and four U.S. Presidents. Mr. Bailey performed, in the very special recreation of the Mother and Daughter Concert, as Judy Garland alongside Liza Minnelli. Minnelli stated in the introduction that, “Angels gave [Jim] a special talent…” Another highlight includes Mr. Bailey’s performance as Barbra Streisand for Barbra Streisand, in which she led the standing ovation at the conclusion of the performance.

He has also appeared in motion pictures including, “Vultures In Paradise”, “Blind Rage”, “The Surrogate” and Woody Allen’s “Zelig”. Mr. Bailey has two best selling albums, “Jim Bailey Live At Carnegie Hall” and “Voices” which showcase his vocal talents. Mr. Bailey’s theatrical work include “Tallulah & Tennessee”, “Me And Jezebel”, “Mae West At The Club El Fey”, “Nightclub Confidential”, “Jeffrey”, “The Boyfriend”, “The Diary Of Anne Frank”, “Bells Are Ringing”, “The Cave Dwellers” and “Fragile Fire” (directed by Paul Winfield). From 1998 to 1999, Mr. Bailey performed in his theater (The Jim Bailey Theater) in Palm Springs.

Jim Bailey has received numerous awards for his artistry. These include the Peoples Choice Award, Las Vegas Performer of the Year (five time recipient), the International Press Association Award (two time recipient), the Variety Club Award, and numerous other theater awards and honors. Mr. Bailey’s charitable work includes benefits for the American Cancer Society, the Heart Fund, Multiple Sclerosis, Handicapped Children and AIDS organizations throughout the world.
