Season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race ended in June, but cast standout Miz Cracker has already performed in Minneapolis more times than queens from past seasons! After her third show here in a few months’ time, I got a chance to speak with her about what keeps her coming back for more. 

Derek: Hi, Miz Cracker! Thank you for taking the time to do an interview with me. I had the chance to speak with Monet for the last M&P tour, and she spoke highly of you. What has life been like for you since RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 ended?

Miz Cracker: It’s December now, and I’m realizing that this has been the most eventful year of my life. Since the show, I’ve visited almost a dozen countries, worked with some of my idols and hosted two national tours. Incredible.

D: Your Drag Race reaction series Review with a Jew is hilarious. Can we expect more during All Stars 4, and possibly even Season 11? 

MC: I don’t think I could show my face to the world if I didn’t continue Review with a Jew. Also, Katelyn my copilot in life would come break my legs. It’s our baby, our “art” and our biggest achievement. 

D: Is there a Miz Cracker album in the works?

MC: I mean, Cher covered ABBA. Is it time for me to cover Cher covering ABBA?

D: What are some of your goals for 2019?

MC: My goal for 2019 is to really put my philosophy to work—show the world that drag can do amazing things for queers and women in a real way. Stay tuned for more. I can’t tell too much.

D: You recently performed your one woman show “It’s Time!” and co-hosted Murray & Peter Present War On the Catwalk - The Queens of Season 10, both here in Minneapolis, before hosting this Christmas tour stop. What’s your favorite part of performing here?

MC: I’m not gassing you up when I say Katelyn and I love the Twin Cities. I’m not even sure what it is—the wild audiences? The good diners? The quirky event spaces? We’ve been all over the world and we CAN’T get enough of this place.
D: Give a tease of what audiences will experience on the Murray & Peter Present A Drag Queen Christmas - The Naughty Tour

MC: I’ve never had so much fun on a group tour honestly. Audiences should expect a group of wildly different queens poking fun at each other mercilessly and still celebrating their differences. Some penis jokes. And a lot of jokes about my recent weight gain. Honestly, I’m not always this cheery. I just happen to love this tour and this city.
