Saturday July 14, 10:30pm Show Features:
BIG-TIME HOTSHOT COMEDIAN:
ItâsÂ Dino Stamatopoulos!
He played Star-Burns on “Community.” He wrote for Mr. Show. He created stop-action animation Moral Orel and Mary Shelleyâs Frankenhole for Adult Swim. Youâve seen him in Conan sketches.
(Stephen ColbertÂ tweeted: âHey. You know Dino Stamatopoulos?Â Heâs funny…”)
Telling the true stories of African-American performers in the 1910s and now, this show-ensemble created by dancer and choreographerÂ Jordon WatersÂ is very funny, poignant, dynamic, cool, and finally triumphant. The Rat is proud to present excerpts of âRebirth of Rabbitâs Footâ (presented atÂ Feinsteinâs/54 Below, Joeâs Pub and aÂ 6-Month ResidencyÂ at the PIT Theater). Rabbitâs Foot is about to explode with dance, patter, and energy!
A sound thatâs simple, raw and stripped down, while filling the room with soul and intensity: thatâsÂ Henry Black, a singer and guitarist making hisÂ RatÂ debut. Weâre thrilled to welcome him aboard!
MONTHLY ART-ENTERTAINMENT BRILLIANCE:
The Ratâs not complete without the funny, clever, eccentric work ofÂ Bill Chambers. A horrifying parody of an Apple tech expo, the tale of Vincenzo the Chain-Smoking Monkey, re-animating a âdeadâ Teddy Ruxpin a la Mary Shelly â expect the unexpected. Bill is seen in the Frigid Festival, Canuck Cabaret, and the annual East Village Antifolk Festival.
PSEUDO âGERMANâ NIGHTCLUB HUMOR:
Gregor of BerlinÂ (akaÂ Gregory Levine) â suave, sinister, sarcastic, appearing âby contractual obligation,â the Fatherlandâs favorite entertainer will regale you with horrid tales of Berlinner childhood, decadence, morphine, prostitution, and of course, show biz. (Seen at Feinsteinâs/54 Below, APAP showcases at the Duplex, Capital Fringe, Frigid Festival, Travel Channel and in the Guinness World Records).
HOT WORLD DANCE ENSEMBLE:
Members of the acclaimed internationalÂ Guilty Pleasures CabaretÂ dance troupe bring their Moulin Rouge-style dazzle, costumery, Tap, Frug, âcircusâ contortion, and acclaimed Light Show to the Rat every month! See why they wowed Feinsteinâs/54 Below, The Duplex and resorts from Belize to China!
HOSTED by Stand Up Comic/Storyteller, Canadian ImportÂ Jillian ThomasÂ (MTV Live, The Toronto Show, The Buzz, Listen Missy, & Much Musicâs Love Court). Not to mention the annual East Village Oscar Awards Party, and Canadaâs longest-running cannabis-cafe comedy-club show!
Produced byÂ Rob DubÂ and Gregory Levine
