Cheap Things to Do in NYC Tonight !

PamWessAndGPC-BackstageNYC’s Dance Music Comedy Art Show: Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret is tonight at 10:30pm!

(Click to Reserve $10 Tickets)

Now in its 5th Year, Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret (READ REVIEW) 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!  (Featured Event in “What To Do in NYC Tonight”)

Saturday June 9, 10:30pm Show Features:

BEAUTIFUL BLUES BELTING:
Audience favorite SHESHE DANCE (aka Azusa) always captures the room with her rip-roaring vocals and big big heart. Witness why this wonderful song stylist won over the famously tough Showtime at The Apollo — TWICE!

MADAME BOUGE:
Aka Pamela Wess (star of cult fave “Clown Porn” and co-host of the The ORIGINAL NYC Talent Show), a superb scary sexy hilarious performance-art burlesque parody who just may destroy something — because she carries a horse-whip!

INSANE CHARACTER(S):
Katie Hartman, fresh off a major role in the Netflix comedy The Week Of (playing opposite Adam Sandler and Chris Rock!!!), has killed it in cult-favorite comedy Gypsy Danger and Skinny B*tch Jesus Meeting. And the Rat has her on June 9th!

WORLD DANCE TROUPE: FISHNET FOLLIES
Moulin Rouge-style dazzle, costumery, Tap, Frug, “circus” contortion, and acclaimed Light Show! The Fishnet Follies, a boutique team created specially for the Rat, are members of the acclaimed Guilty Pleasures Cabaret dance troupe. See why they wowed Feinstein’s/54 Below and resorts from Belize to Dubai to China!

MAD ‘MOCKSTAR’ CONCERT:
The legendary Killy Dwyer (host, Radio Free Brooklyn) is a singer, songwriter, mosher, digital artist and performer like you’ve never seen! Learn why Jerry Stiller said, “Kid, that Lady Gaga’s got nothin’ on you!” when she was a Finalist in the annual Andy Kaufman Awards!

FUNNY BITTER(SWEET) STORY LEGEND:
Michele Carlo (creator of “Fish Out of Agua” and acclaimed solo show “There Goes the Neighbrhood”) is the self-proclaimed “redhead with 8,000,000 stories about New York City—perhaps one of them is about *you*…” We’re looking forward to getting lost in her words.

GUITARIST-SINGER:
In his Rat debut, meet Hayden T. Stearns! A terrific compelling musician, singing from the heart (a cliche, yes, but you’ll see) — and carving out a niche all his own in NYC.

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).

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

All Hail Queen Taradise!

Taradise-Queen-Montage

Congratulations to one of our favorite performers: Taradise, who won the title 2018 New Jersey Queen of Burlesque!

Taradise Bizub is a dancer, burlesque performer, comedian, actress and producer who epitomizes what it means to be in Show Biz.

Member of the acclaimed posh burlesque-theater ensemble House of Noire, Taradise performs all over NYC and America as a solo act and in conjunction with others. She can be seen regularly onstage at legendary Lower East Side “pin-up bar” Nurse Bettie.

On May 25th, she competed in the Queen & King of NJ Burlesque Competition, as part of the NJ Burlesque Festival at The Asbury Hotel, in Asbury Park, NJ.
And she won! …but frankly, we weren’t surprised.

Watch Taradise in one of her Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret appearances, in one of her favorite incarnations: Lucille Ball in “I Love Lucy!  (Her appearance starts at :58)
