Saturday July 14, 10:30pm Show Features:
BIG-TIME HOTSHOT COMEDIAN:
He played Star-Burns on “Community.” He wrote for Mr. Show. He created stop-action animation Moral Orel and Mary Shelley‚Äôs Frankenhole for Adult Swim. You‚Äôve seen him in Conan sketches.
(Stephen Colbert¬†tweeted: ‚ÄúHey. You know Dino Stamatopoulos?¬†He‚Äôs funny…”)
Telling the true stories of African-American performers in the 1910s and now, this show-ensemble created by dancer and choreographer¬†Jordon Waters¬†is very funny, poignant, dynamic, cool, and finally triumphant. The Rat is proud to present excerpts of ‚ÄúRebirth of Rabbit‚Äôs Foot‚ÄĚ (presented at¬†Feinstein‚Äôs/54 Below, Joe‚Äôs Pub and a¬†6-Month Residency¬†at the PIT Theater). Rabbit‚Äôs Foot is about to explode with dance, patter, and energy!
A sound that‚Äôs simple, raw and stripped down, while filling the room with soul and intensity: that‚Äôs¬†Henry Black, a singer and guitarist making his¬†Rat¬†debut. We‚Äôre thrilled to welcome him aboard!
MONTHLY ART-ENTERTAINMENT BRILLIANCE:
The Rat‚Äôs 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 ‚Äúdead‚ÄĚ Teddy Ruxpin a la Mary Shelly ‚ÄĒ expect the unexpected. Bill is seen in the Frigid Festival, Canuck Cabaret, and the annual East Village Antifolk Festival.
PSEUDO ‚ÄėGERMAN‚Äô NIGHTCLUB HUMOR:
Gregor of Berlin¬†(aka¬†Gregory Levine) ‚Äď suave, sinister, sarcastic, appearing ‚Äúby contractual obligation,‚ÄĚ the Fatherland‚Äôs favorite entertainer will regale you with horrid tales of Berlinner childhood, decadence, morphine, prostitution, and of course, show biz. (Seen at Feinstein‚Äôs/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 international¬†Guilty Pleasures Cabaret¬†dance troupe bring their Moulin Rouge-style dazzle, costumery, Tap, Frug, ‚Äúcircus‚ÄĚ contortion, and acclaimed Light Show to the Rat every month! See why they wowed Feinstein‚Äôs/54 Below, The Duplex and resorts from Belize to China!
HOSTED by Stand Up Comic/Storyteller, Canadian Import¬†Jillian Thomas¬†(MTV Live, The Toronto Show, The Buzz, Listen Missy, & Much Music‚Äôs Love Court). Not to mention the annual East Village Oscar Awards Party, and Canada‚Äôs longest-running cannabis-cafe comedy-club show!
Produced by¬†Rob Dub¬†and Gregory Levine
