Many of Elvira’s fans believe she was born fully formed from Satan’s womb as Mistress of the Dark, and not a valley girl character created by comedian Cassandra Peterson who has now dedicated 35 years of her life to being the gal in the wig whose talents are big.
Today, we’re chatting with Elvira’s only official drag queen impersonator, Christian Greenia, who also runs much of the behind the scenes business of the Queen of Halloween.
Listen as we chat with Christian about performers whose characters took over their lives and forever blurred the lines between reality and fantasy. Like pro wrestlers and rock stars, Elvira, Pee Wee Herman and Andy Kaufman made a career by blurring the lines.
