Mia E Z'Lay is a colorful cartoon queen who leaves her audiences wondering, "Can I get a refund?" She can do it all... Except sing. Don't ask her to sing.

Robin Banks is the love child of a one night stand between a Carnival Barker and a Lucille Ball impersonator. She has been the host of New Haven's drag show The #1 Drag Show in CT over 10 years. If she doesn't make you laugh you probably weren't paying attention.
