Every day between now and then, we’re going to be highlighting a wowlebrity that will be in attendance! Today, we honor the incomparable Tammie Brown. WHATTA WOMAN!
Tammie Brown is a gay American singer, actor and drag performer, perhaps best known for his appearance as a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 1 and RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race. Currently, he is a fixture in the Southern California Drag scene.
Born in Corpus Christi, Texas, Tammie started his auspicious career performing as Cha Cha from the musical “Grease,” and as the Wicked Stepmother in “Into the Woods.” He first started performing drag at Club Divas in Corpus Christi, Texas. He initially wanted to perform under his real name, Keith Schubert, however, he was urged to pick the name Tammie Brown by Corpus Christi’s local pageant queens.
In the early 2000’s Tammie was developed at Fire Island Nightclub in Long Beach, CA. During this time he made an appearance as Tammie Brown on “The Surreal Life” with Tammy Faye Messner, and as himself on “How Clean is Your House.” As Keith Glen Schubert he has appeared in commercials for McDonalds and UPS and in Korn’s music video ” Twisted Transistor”.
As Tammie Brown, he appeared in Robbie William’s music video “She’s Madonna” and Crazy Lupe’s “Mm Ma Ma.”
In March 2009, Tammie released his first album, Popcorn on iTunes. Tammie’s otherworldly videos such as “Shaka Buku U,” “Whatever,” and “The Ballad of Tiger Lily” can be found on her YouTube Channel and Tammie’s latest album Hot Skunks, is available on iTunes!
