Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret: Where art and entertainment meet since 2013. A slice of NYC nightlife in a classic East Village venue. A night out like no other.
Sept. 7, 9:30pm Show Features:
Jeffrey Wetzel – cool smooth magician and a Rat favorite, Jeff will Houdini his way out of an inescapable trap — before your eyes!
DARK SMART BURLESQUE
Mary Cyn – mistress of hot conceptual burlesque, Ms. Cyn is known for the long-running Original Cyn productions, “Bardlesque” Shakespearean burlesque, and anything that combines intellect, nerd culture and theater with extremely sexy striptease.
Julie Lauren Stevens – Julie brings back her beautiful pipes to make the walls tremble with operatic glory — oh, and some sassy Broadway show tunes!
Subhah Agarwal – rocketing her way to the top on MTV and TruTV, Subhah has been seen on Comedy Central, at New York Comedy Club, Greenwich CC, Broadway CC, & the Laughing Devil. She has performed at the New York Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, and was a featured comedian on PBS’s popular web series “Modern Comedian.” She is now a professional TV comedy writer.
HOT DANCE REVUE
Dancers of the Guilty Pleaures Cabaret (pictured) – Tap, contortion, hair flips and high kicks: GPC’s members have performed around the world, including for the Sheikh of Abu Dhabi. They’ll bring their tight drilled dance numbers (everything from Fosse to Beyonce) back to the Rat!
Bill Chambers – He put words in the mouth of Henry Rollins, reenacted The Karate Kid, and traced the career of Neil Diamond. The Rat’s own Artist-in-Residence graces and stuns the Cabaret with more of his monthly greatness, oddness, genius, hilarity.
GERMAN-Ish THEATRICAL COMEDY
Gregor of Berlin (Gregory Levine) – Vain, brilliant, charming, bleak, humorous, decadent character performs “By contractual obligation.” Enjoy some Schadenfreude and morphine at his expense.
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!
