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 East Village venue: a NYC night out like no other!
Saturday Jan. 13, 10:30pm Show Features:
Who the hell is Michael Delisle pretending to be? A deranged contestant on a game-show (gone horribly wrong), a desperate suitor in a Rom-Com (gone horribly wrong), Delisle is one of the funniest character-actor comedians alive. He stars in regular weekly shows at NYC theaters like The Magnet and the PIT, and it’s only a matter of time before he spurns The Rat’s advances!
SMART & FUNNY:
Witty, urbane comedy comes courtesy of NY native Nat Towsen, whose work has appeared on VICE and CollegeHumor. Host and producer of the long-running Nat Towsen’s Downtown Variety Hour, he’s a returning Rat Audience Favorite!
WORLD DANCE TROUPE:
The Fishnet Follies, a boutique team created specially for the Rat, are members of the acclaimed international Guilty Pleasures Cabaret dance troupe. They bring their Moulin Rouge-style 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 the annual East Village Antifolk Festival.
PSEUDO ‘GERMAN’ NIGHTCLUB HUMOR:
Gregor of Berlin (aka Gregory Levine) – suave, sinister, sarcastic, appearing “by contractual obligation,” the Fatherland’s favorite entertainer will regale you with horrid tales of Berlinner childhood, decadence, morphine, prostitution, and of course, show biz. (Seen in The Duplex, Feinstein’s/54 Below, the Capital Fringe, Frigid Festival, Travel Channel and in the Guinness World Records).
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
