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 April 14, 10:30pm Show Features –
The riveting Rebecca Florence brings her sweeping soulful warble and dark lovely piano to our stage!
HILARITY WITH THE ‘KING’
Brilliant character comedy with Jamie Cummings as “Minneapolis’ 4th Most Popular Elvis Impersonator”! (You’ve seen him in Accomplice Show, a fave Off-Broadway event of Neil Patrick Harris. Cummings is also an acclaimed teacher and performer at The PIT!)
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 crowds at Feinstein’s/54 Below, the Cutting Room, the Duplex and global resorts from Belize to China!
Boris Khaykin – from Broad City to HuffingtonPost to CollegeHumor Live, Boris is all over NYC and all over the country, seen on campuses, MTV and VH1 as part of hiphop improv comedy group North Coast. Welcome back to The Rat!
MONTHLY ART-ENTERTAINMENT BRILLIANCE:
The Rat’s not complete without the funny, clever, eccentric work of Bill Chambers. A horrifying parody of an 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 regularly in the Frigid Festival, Rocco’s Witness Protection Revue, 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 at Feinstein’s/54 Below, APAP showcases at the Duplex, Capital Fringe, Frigid Festival, Travel Channel and in the Guinness World Records).
…AND MORE TO COME!
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!
