The gags in Uppity were sharp and cutting, often filthy and dark, but the queens stayed on point and focused with the humour. Delivering joke after joke without flinching or distracting from applying the face, the audience, who mostly consisted of Village staff, guffawed from start to finish. But for those outsiders like me, the pictures they painted of the whole gay scene were vivid enough to let us in on the joke without necessarily knowing who they were talking about, as long as we knew where they were talking about them. "We have a bar called Queer that's full of straights," Misty quipped, "A club called Essential that no one wants to go to and The Eagle, where they don't let in birds!"
While Misty is currently one of the most recognisable drag faces in the North West, Terry - who explained the older tradition of maintaining one's first name as part of the drag persona - is no longer a professional queen. Though his heels are not hung up forever, he runs (and works for) his own building firm. The hilarity of this juxtaposition aside, both maintain that comedy is fundamentally essential to any drag performer over any attempt to be "convincing" in their female impersonation. Misty says that she would rather be mistaken for a clown than a woman and if one thing was clear from Uppity, both queens are highly gifted comedians.
