With a sharp, clever voice and an outlook not bitter so much as “been-around,” if you’ve ever played the field, you’ll find yourself nodding and laughing as Subhah details the realities of dating in NYC… especially as a woman. (Sorry, fellas, but you know she’s right.)
Subhah’s take on being a 1st-generation Indian-American (and apparently a grave disappointment to her ambitious white-collar parents) is always hilarious.
“Subhah’s parents immigrated from India to small town America so their children could live the American dream. And by American dream I mean pursue stand up comedy and become an Indian parent’s nightmare.”
Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret is thrilled to welcome her back to our stage!
So, Who Else Is Performing on Saturday Sept. 8?
GLAMOROUS, GLITZY DANCERS:
Moulin Rouge-style dazzle, costumery, Tap, Frug, “circus” contortion, and acclaimed Light Show: That’s what you can expect from the acclaimed international Guilty Pleasures Cabaret.
INSANE FUNNY PERFORMANCE ART:
The Blood Diamond iPhone, Vincenzo the Chain-Smoking Monkey, Neil Diamond’s “True Crime Confessions” — Bill Chambers, the Rat’s Artist-in-Residence, brings something wild and different every month.
GERMAN ARISTOCRAT… OR CON MAN??
“Gregor of Berlin” (if that is his name) was thrown out of Berlin for insulting the Crown Prince. Or so he says. Der Fatherland’s favorite entertainer will amuse you with horrid tales of Berlinner childhood, decadence, morphine, prostitution, and of course, Show Biz.
HOT BURLESQUE PERFORMANCE ART:
Is it burlesque? Is it modern dance? It’s art, it’s sensual, dramatic and stunning: Scarlett Cerise is a dancer and burlesque performer who tells stories through intense theatrical motion. Appearing specially this month only at Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret.
THE SLY LATE-NITE SATIRE…
… of Ikechukwu Ufomadu, aka IKE.
Ike’s short-form series Words with Ike has aired on VICE and IFC networks. The New York Times named Ike in its “What’s New in NYC Theatre.” His critically-acclaimed shows include 1960s-TV-style Ike at Night at The Public Theater, Bushwick Starr and JACK; his comedy and music Nightcap by Ike and Ike for the Holidays at Joe’s Pub at The Public. He performed in the Rat’s 2013 debut… and we’re thrilled to have him back.
BEAUTIFUL BRASSY BROADWAY BELTER:
Founding member of long-running legendary musical-comedy ensemble VERN, please welcome Julie A Feltman! A NYC theater veteran, company member of NY’s Emerging Artists Theater, and resident House Team performer at venues including the PIT Comedy Theater, Julie is funny, fast, and the lady has PIPES!
SALOON & CAFE SINGER:
Cafe singer and bon vivant Jackson Sturkey and His Orchestra brings to mind witty, bittersweet characters of shadowy saloons and old theaters, absinthe in glamorous Paris basements and the sass of Texas Guinan. Host of the Tampa Fringe Festival, perennial player in the monthly Plan B and Family Liquid Dinner variety shows, Jackson is larger than life yet infinitely familiar. He returns to charm and delight you as he captures the essence of the Hot Art Salon.
Canadian Import Jillian Thomas (MTV Live, The Toronto Show) , queen of the annual East Village Oscar Awards Party, and creator of Canada’s longest-running legal marijuana cafe comedy-club show! See why Second City‘s Joe Flaherty said,
“Wow, you looked so innocent back stage… face of an angel and the laugh of the Devil!”
