Actually, the "hideous ladyboys" are not ladyboys. They are two real boys and if you wash off all the makeup and remove the wigs and lady clothing they are far from hideous but that's my subjective judgement. They are making a living and after Classic they move on to the late night venues and perform their act again. The makeup comes off after work and then they appear quite fit middle of the road males, not even fem boys. It's just a job.
There are three total (two at a time) at Classic that do the drag act and I knew them originally as boys. When I first saw them in drag I had no idea who they were. They had to tell me.
They are not Mamasans.
This was bad wording for a topic title, sorry. As events and circumstances developed it was not closed. I should have just titled it Classic Boys.
