GRANDE DAME......CHARLIE HIDES


Merging the line between mildly offensive and pretty frickin hilarious, Charlie Hides knows no bounds when coming to drag. With a career spanning over 20 years,  it's easy to see why this British queen is getting the attention. Discovering his talent at a very early age for making people laugh, it was in school he'd do impersonations of his teachers making the class erupt with laughter. Spinning his mischievous behavior into a full blown career path was a easy choice. Having previously studied at the Fashion and Costume Design at University he was able to combine a love of comedy with interesting fashion, and started creating costumes for his vast array of impersonations and parodies of the stars. And his name is also called to question a lot. Many believe it to be Hides, because Charlie "hides" behind the characters he does. But ...it is really his name!!!!Having seen his show once, there is no denying his comic wit and beauty....and height to rival that of RuPaul.

  4. Charlie Hides is hardly a "British queen". He was born in Boston, Massachusetts. That aside (and as you well know, I used to feature them every week!) his video pastiches of Madge, GaGa, Cher, Liza etc (as well as his stage show) are the work of a genius! I just wish he would resurrect his YouTube work - and I haven't seen him on stage in London for ages... Jx

    1. To busy traveling the globe. Last I knew, he was still living in England, but it may have changed. Rumors are swirling that he is currently "on vacation" in Boston, but may actually be filming yet another season of RuPauls Drag Race.......hummmmmmmm. And yes he is originally from the US, but jumped the pond some years ago.

    2. He was on stage in Manchester last Sunday, so it may be a rumour... Jx

  6. I love Charles videos and his impressions are top notch and funny as hell. All I can think is "he would completely rule the snatch game" on Drag Race.
