Chablis (born Benjamin Edward Knox in 1957) is an American
Chablis became notable in the early 1990s when she was featured as
one of Savannah's colorful characters in John Berendt's book
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, based on a true crime
story. In the book, Chablis and her larger-than-life adventures
provided a counterbalance to the darker narrative of murder that was
central to the book.
Chablis played herself in the 1997 movie of the same title, directed
by Clint Eastwood and starring Kevin Spacey and John Cusack. Chablis
made several appearances on talk shows when the book and the movie
Chablis frequently performs at her "home" nightclub of Club One in
Savannah. Chablis also continues to travel the US performing at
various venues and special events, such as gay pride gatherings. She
has also appeared on radio shows.
