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! (READ REVIEWS, below.)
Saturday July 14, 10:30pm Show Features –
A sound that’s simple, raw and stripped down, while filling the room with soul and intensity: that’s Henry Black, a singer and guitarist making his Rat debut. We’re thrilled to welcome him aboard!
BIG-TIME HOTSHOT COMEDIAN:
He wrote for MR. SHOW. He created stop-action animation Moral Orel and Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole for Adult Swim. You’ve seen him in Conan sketches. It’s Dino Stamatopoulos!
(Stephen Colbert tweeted: “Hey. You know Dino Stamatopoulos? He’s funny. He also has a band called Sorry About Everything…”)
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 “Rebirth of Rabbit’s Foot” (presented at Feinstein’s/54 Below, Joe’s Pub and a 6-Month Residency at the PIT Theater). Rabbit’s Foot is about to explode with dance, patter, and energy!
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 in the Frigid Festival, Canuck Cabaret, 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).
HOT WORLD DANCE ENSEMBLE:
Members of the acclaimed international Guilty Pleasures Cabaret dance troupe bring their Moulin Rouge-style dazzle, costumery, Tap, Frug, “circus” contortion, and acclaimed Light Show to the Rat every month! See why they wowed Feinstein’s/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’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
