Saturday Dec. 8, 10:30pm Show Features –
One of the best bands we’ve ever heard, anywhere: SisterMonk. Led by frontwoman Kathy Deane on the African djembe drums and vocals, SisterMonk combines funk, soul and electric-folk into beautiful, sweeping rhythm and melody. They’ve thrilled crowds at shows including The Lincoln Center Summer Music in The Park series and Yasgur’s Farm Woodstock Reunion. We’re thrilled to have them again for the first time since 2016 — and you will be, too!

Deconstructing strip clubs, a musical tragedy set in Chipotle, teaching an insane self-defense class on TV: Alison Wien, Dani Elizabeth Letsche, and Case Watson are collectively the sketch-comedy team “Thank You For Your Cervix.” TYFYC dominated the annual 2018 NYC SketchFest with their sharp-edged, clever writing and bold characterization. They’re theatre-trained, improv-trained and…
“Guess how many of us have daddy issues!” (They said it, the Rat didn’t.)
BEAUTIFUL BRASSY BROADWAY BELTER:
Founding member of long-running legendary musical-comedy ensemble VERN, welcome back Rat audience favorite 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!
PHYSICAL THEATRE COMEDY:
Pamela Wess slew them at the acclaimed Bindelstiff Open Stage (Dixon Place), starred in cult fave “Clown Porn” and is the driving force behind the comedy “On Women Who Validate Themselves Through Sex” (Official Selection: LA Comedy Festival and Las Vegas Film Festival). Her alter-ego Madame Bouge (SEE PHOTO) is kinda weird, kinda hot, kinda… murderous? You decide — but you’ll agree she is very gifted and very funny!
The Rat would not be complete without our Artist-in-Residence: the funny, brilliant, and strange Bill Chambers. He brought us Henry Rollins’ Children’s Book Read-a-long (yes, there’s violence and nihilism), David Lee Roth’s Therapy Sessions, Neil Diamond’s True Crime Confessions – and Vincenzo the Chain-Smoking Monkey. Expect the unexpected from this hilarious performance-art polymath. He’s seen in the Gotham Storytelling Festival, Canuck Cabaret, and the annual cult favorite Lower East Side Anti-Folk Festival.
HIGH-KICKING WORLD DANCE TROUPE:
Moulin Rouge-style dazzle, costumery, Tap, Frug, acrobatic “circus” contortion, and Light Show — that’s the acclaimed international Guilty Pleasures Cabaret dance company! See why they’ve wowed crowds at Feinstein’s/54 Below, the Duplex, the Cutting Room and worldwide resorts from Dubai to Belize to China! (SEE PHOTO)
CLASSIC GERMAN XMAS FOLK TALE… SORT OF
Dark “German” nightclub humor as suave, sinister, witty and sarcastic criminal Gregor of Berlin (aka Gregory Levine) regales us with the “traditional Black Forest folk tale of ‘Rudolf Rotschnauz’ (Rednose).” There is Schadenfreude and revenge! Gregory/Gregor has been seen in the Capital Fringe, Frigid Festival, Travel Channel, The Duplex, the PIT Comedy Theater and Guinness Book of World Records.
HOSTED by emcee extraordinaire, comedian/storyteller and Canadian Import Jillian Thomas (MTV Live, The Buzz, The Toronto Show, Listen Missy and Much Music’s Love Court). Not to mention the annual East Village Oscar Awards Party, and Canada’s longest-running cannabis-cafe comedy-club show!
Produced by Rob Dub and Gregory Levine
