NYC’s Hot Art Music Comedy Show, Live on Nov. 11th!

Rat-Poster-USM-Fence-TIME-Deleted-NO-GarbageThe Rat is coming at you Saturday, Nov. 11 at 10:30 PM!

Now in its 5th Year, Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret features an inspired, curated monthly roster of thrilling music, smart comedy, amazing dance, clever storytelling, sexy burlesque, art and theatrical vaudeville spectacle.  A great show in a legendary Village venue: a night out like no other!

This month’s show hosted by Gregory Levine!

Sat. Nov. 11 Show Features:

GORGEOUS MUSIC:
from Julie Lauren Stevens Kosnik. Soaring operatic arias and Broadway tunes belted with brio – she’s made the walls of musical theaters shake and even astonished and halted NYC subway travelers in their tracks. Julie is a Rat favorite and we’re delighted to have her back!

HOT DANCE:
The Fishnet Follies, a “boutique act” created specially for the Rat, members of the acclaimed international Guilty Pleasures Cabaret dance troupe will bring their dazzle, costumery, Tap, Frug, “circus” contortion, and acclaimed Light Show to the Rat every month! See why they wowed Feinstein’s/54 Below, the Triad, the Duplex and worldwide resorts from Belize to China!

CRAZY FUNNY SHOW-WITHIN-SHOW:
What is The 29th Street Revue? Part sketch comedy, part musical theater, the Revue’s members (inc. PIT Theater luminaries Kassi Dougherty andMelissa Parker Caron) will generate a hilarious show-within-a-show before your eyes and ears – with live piano accompaniment enhancing the experience!

MONTHLY ART-ENTERTAINMENT BRILLIANCE:
The Rat’s not complete without the funny, clever, eccentric work of Bill Chambers. A pitch-perfect parody of Apple expo egomania, the tale of Vincenzo the Chain-Smoking Monkey, “Neil Diamond,” “Henry Rollins,” re-animating a “dead” Teddy Ruxpin a la Mary Shelly — expect the unexpected. Bill is seen in the Frigid Festival, Canuck Cabaret, and punk/hardcore shows all across Eastern Europe and NY.

PSEUDO-GERMAN SCHEISS:
A melange of lies! “Herr Gregor of Berlin” (Gregory Levine) will regale you with horrid tales of Teutonic childhood, decadence, morphine, prostitution, and of course, the cruelty of show biz. (Seen in The Duplex, Feinstein’s/54 Below, the Capital Fringe, Frigid Festival, Travel Channel and in the Guinness World Records for Longest Continuous Variety Show).

…and MORE!

produced by Rob Dub and Gregory Levine

NYC’s Hot Art Cabaret Returns on Oct. 14!

FourthAnniversaryMontageA slice of NYC nightlife in a classic East Village venue. A night out like no other.

SATURDAY OCT. 14, 10:30pm SHOW FEATURES:

DARK SWEET BOHEMIAN MUSIC:
Jackson Sturkey – the sense of shadowy saloons and old theaters, absinthe in glamorous basements and sepia sheet-music, Jackson’s music and persona will charm and delight you as he captures the essence of the Hot Art Cabaret.

SHARP COMEDY:
Veronica Garza – Veronica’s known for The She-Woman Lady Lovers Variety Show & Workshop (for podcasters), co-hosts The Muddy Waters Show at The Fulton Grand, has appeared on MTV and TMZ — and her jokes were featured on NPR! You will agree with the Rat’s bookers: she’s one hilarious badass.

HOT PROFESSIONAL DANCE TROUPE:
The Fishnet Follies, a “boutique act” created specially for the Rat, members of the acclaimed international Guilty Pleasures Cabaret dance troupe will bring their dazzle, costumery, Tap, Frug, “circus” contortion, and acclaimed Light Show to the Rat every month! See why they wowed Feinstein’s/54 Below, the Triad and resorts from Belize to China!

MONTHLY ART-ENTERTAINMENT BRILLIANCE:
The Rat’s not complete without the funny, clever, eccentric work of Bill Chambers. A pitch-perfect parody of an egomaniacal Apple tech expo, the tale of Vincenzo the Chain-Smoking Monkey, re-animating a “dead” Teddy Ruxpin a la Mary Shelly — expect the unexpected. Bill is seen in the Frigid Festival, Canuck Cabaret, and punk/hardcore shows all across Eastern Europe and NY.

MOE & MARY:
Favorites of Fringe and Frigid theater festivals around the world, Mary Crosbie and Moe Rosen are the Canadian husband-and-wife team often called a “dark postmodern Burns and Allen”: Hilarious, silly, horrifying and loveable, this vaudevillian duo will make you suspect a tesseract opened up to the Golden age of Radio – until you start listening to their insane and insanely funny “conversations.”

LIVE FROM SPAIN: HERR GREGOR!
A melange of lies!  Gregory Levine as “Herr Gregor of Berlin” will regale you with horrid tales of Teutonic childhood, decadence, morphine, prostitution, and of course, the cruelty of show biz. (Seen in the Capital Fringe, FRIGID Festival, Travel Channel, Duplex, Feinstein’s/54 Below and Guinness World Records for Longest Continuous Variety Show). THIS MONTH: Coming to you live from his vacation in Barcelona, Spain, via Facebook Live… if we can force him to.

HOSTED by Stand Up Comic/Storyteller, Canadian Import Jillian Thomas(MTV Live, The Toronto Show, The Buzz, Listen Missy, & 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
