Veteran Scranton Fringe Festival performer Pissi Myles is a familiar face on stages here and in New York City, but she took her bigger-than-life persona to a new spot today — the public impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
Myles is at the hearings working as a special contributor with Happs News, a live news source that streams through Twitter, according to the Associated Press.
In September, the singer, comedian and humorist led the Fringe Festival’s drag brunch and emceed its annual Big Gay Scranton StorySlam. She also has appeared in Cosmopolitan Magazine and on RuPaul’s “What’s the Tee?” podcast.
The first public impeachment hearings are focusing on President Donald Trump’s alleged efforts to link American aid for Ukraine to investigations of his political opponents.
