DRINKS WITH GEORGE AND MARTHA:
Brilliant comedian-performers Adrian Sexton and Jason Specland bring their hilarious, clever, shocking take on Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and “Who’s Afraid of Virgina Wolfe?” — recreated in bizarre fashion like you’ve not seen before!
Samantha Echo, instrumentalist, singer and lyricist, brings her dark magic back to the Rat. (Here, take a listen to a personal fave, “The Slut of Denmark.”)
“[Echo is] Somewhere between dangerous and whimsy” – Jack Murray, Unknown Nobodies
CLASSY SAUCY BURLESQUE:
The great and beautiful Delilah returns to light up Under St. Marks with her distinctive costumery and sizzle!
The great Eric Kirchberger returns to the Rat! Comedian, actor, and screenwriter, he can be seen on Comedy Central, HBO Comedy and performing live in New York City and throughout the world. He has appeared in the movie LUCKY with Jeffrey Tambor and the film WILD GIRLS GONE with Matt Walsh and Amy Poehler.(http://www.erickirchberger.com/)
Bill Chambers, the Rat’s Artist-in-Residence and producer of The Other Show, has animated a dead Teddy Ruxpin a la Mary Shelly, arranged a special appearance by “Neil Diamond,” or related the funny, strange horror of catering a hated man’s funeral. What will he do this month?? (Seen in the Frigid Festival, Canuck Cabaret, and punk rock shows all across the Former Communist Bloc.)
PSEUDO-GERMAN XMAS FOLK TALES
Gregor of Berlin relates the beloved Christmas tale of “Rudolf Rotschnauz” (Rednose), the highly intelligent reindeer who dared to break free from the oppression and brutality of the others in Santa’s Proletarian Workshop.
