DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

For this pre-Halloween epsiode, Dennis heads to the Dunny-filled West Hollywood apartment of actor Danny Casillas to talk with Danny and his cohort in comedy Oscar Quintero about their show "Sketchy Queens 3-D", which opens Wednesday, October 29th at the Cavern Club Theater in Silver Lake.  They share the origin stories of their drag alter egos, Reba Areba (Danny) and Kay Sedia (Oscar) and discuss their 11 year-old cult hit "Chico's Angels," the Latina drag parody of "Charlie's Angels" that they perform regularly with Ray Garcia as Angel #3.  Also on the agenda: how doing drag affects dating, the terror of having to pump your own gas in full drag and the deliriously entertaining Carol Burnett Show-esque cracking up that often happens when they're performing together.  The pair's respective passions are also dissected; for Danny, it's Broadway Broadway Broadway.  For Oscar, it's beauty pageants and he has some incredible anecdotes about the quests for the crown he's been witness to.
