WEBurlesque S5: Applause for Eric Jaffe (#131)
Entertainer, songwriter, and a favorite host in Philadelphia's queer scene, Eric Jaffe talks makeup, masks, beards, composing, and being the #1 Google result for "drag queen." A genderless glamour monster Mx. Jaffe has been thrilling folks with their satirical sendups of your favorite musicals and pop hits, and recently claimed the title Drag Queen of the Year at the annual Philadelphia Drag Awards.

A simple premise with non-simple people
Viktor's podcast is a pretty regular concept - he and his interviewee(s) sit down and chat. The thing that makes this podcast so entertiaing is the range of people he is interviewing. Drag performers, burlesque people, artists, goths, kinksters, clowns, makeup artists, members of the LGBTQIA+ community and more. There is honestly something for everyone who has ever been interested by the allure of the nightlife and cabaret scenes of a city.
