Name Origin

"I got my drag name "Sherry Pie" by sitting in a costume shop one very dark and lonely evening and i was throwing around drag names and i wanted something a little bit punny and a little bit funny, something that was a little vintage and so "Sherry" was the most popular name in the 1950s and so Sherry and then i like food, so "Pie", Sherry Pie, here we are today kids."
