Philadelphia, PA (December 8th, 2014) – Glitter and streamers fell from the sky as Pissi Myles (née Joe D’Angio) was crowned Philadelphia’s Next Drag Superstar when she beat out 14 other contestants over a 15‐week cycle to win Season Four of Philly Drag Wars. D’Angio was personally invited to audition for the show by its host, Mimi Imfurst, a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race (season 3) and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.
“It’s a tremendous honor to have been crowned Philly’s next drag superstar,” said D’Angio in a recent interview, “After a very rewarding couple of months, I’m glad to have so many new friends and opportunities, and a very large box of Oreos.”
Crowned on the 12th of September, Pissi Myles has since been a busy beaver. Pissi has teamed up with noted Philly producer Josh Schonewolf in her own show, “Lipschtick: A Variety Hour,” which debuted on October 11th at L’Etage to a sold‐out house, and continues to sell out every month. Showcasing the big personality of Pissi Myles, the show combines song, dance, comedy, and other “zany antics” for an evening of hilarity and debauchery. She has also teamed with top Philly musician Eric Jaffe for such holiday shows as “Mischief Night” and the upcoming “Merry Pissmas‐ and a Happy New Queer” on December 11th at Tavern on Camac.
In addition to all of this excitement will be Pissi Myles’ noted appearance with drag icon Sherry Vine for “A Very Sherry Christmas”‐ a holiday themed show at Tabu in Philadelphia the day after Christmas.
