May 4 Show!

May Days: Darling buds. Mexican revolutions. Godless Commies. And Mom! Come celebrate the 5th month of the Gregorian calendar with a night of dance, smart comedy, great music, storytelling: a slice of NYC nightlife in a classic East Village venue. A night out like no other.

MAY 4, 2016 SHOW FEATURES:

MUSIC:
Zack Orion – his gorgeous style is “A soup that started in the African sands, whipped through Asia, boomeranged back through the Middle East, climbed the Carpathian mountains and screamed the Atlantic, legs still in a sprint, only to skid through an abandoned train tunnel cutting through the Appalachian hills.”
(https://zackorion2.bandcamp.com/track/stm-zv-3)

BELLYDANCE:
Shari Kamilah returns to the Rat with her signature sizzle — she teaches it and she performs it. Start fanning yourself now. Bring smelling salts to revive yourself…

COMEDY:
Paul Oddo – you’ve seen him on Fox Redeye, at the UCB, the CUNK Show at Creek and the Cave, SXSW, Boston Comedy Festval and Gotham Comedy Live, performing, producing and hosting…now the Rat has him!
