He does two "straight" songs as a woman, then dons a man's evening dress for a male impersonation. He is a female impersonator attempting a male impersonation. If this has been done before it is not within memory.
The disclosure by removing the wig after the male impersonation did not at all convince the audience he was a man. It left them in doubt, and this perplexed condition seemed to be for his advantage in applause.
This young man has a lot to learn about making himself up for his female impersonations, yet his idea is well worth developing. The male impersonator is good enough to build the entire act upon. However, everything about him, his make up, wig and dress, is wrong. He needs to place himself under competent instruction.
