Candis Cayne - Drag Performer

Candis Cayne

Candis Cayne burst on-stage in the mid nineties with a high kick at Boy Bar, the east village weekly, where high production met tight choreography in a winning formula. The leggy Hawaiian raised Cayne rose quickly through the ranks and was soon enjoying star status, helped by her years of dance training and her sex kitten presence. Candis has staged ever more complex production numbers at Wigstock and other large scale events in NYC and around the globe, often involving dozens of background dancers and weeks of rehearsal.

Candis helped Kenny Ortega choreograph Too Wong Fu, and she choreographed Stonewall. She was also in Mob Queen with David Proval and Tony Serico, famed for their roles on Sopranos, she was featured in Wigstock the movie, and Dragtime on HBO. She has been in many commercials, videos, television shows, and print ads. In 2001, she won the coveted title of Miss Continental, an annual talent and beauty contest held in Chicago, which is the biggest and most exclusive trangendered pageant in the country.

She does a weekly one-woman show in NYC combining dance, voice, and comedy to make an original and exhilarating entertainment experience, and was singled out by the New York Times as a must see show. Her main drive now is focusing on her pilots, working on her television career, and representing the trangendered community in a positive light.
