Saturday May 11, 10:30pm Show Features –
BILLBOARD ‘CHICK WITH GUITAR’
Sultry Rock-Soul goddess Nicola Vazquez has shared the stage with Ricky Martin, Shanice, George Clinton, Dave Matthews, and Living Colour’s Muzz Skillings. Come see why the co-founder of “Chicks With Guitars” has sold over 50,000 CDs, was featured on the MTV Music Awards, the subject of an ABC-TV NY News feature, and made Billboard’s Noteworthy “Underground” Breaking Artists to Watch. (Oh, yeah: Nicola also performed in the Broadway Cast of Les Miserables!)
CIRCUS STRONGMAN STORYTELLER
Meet Todd “Hot Todd Lincoln” Gardner, sideshow strongman, emcee of burlesque, escape-ologist, walker of broken glass, and peacock of sartorial splendour. Todd is a fixture on the Southern circus circuit, and he’s come North to show Rat audiences feats that will blow their minds.
HIGH-KICKING DANCE TROUPE:
Moulin Rouge-style dazzle, costumery, Tap, Frug, acrobatic “circus” contortion, and Light Show — that’s the acclaimed international Guilty Pleasures Cabaret dance company! See why they’ve wowed crowds at Feinstein’s/54 Below, the Duplex, the Cutting Room and worldwide resorts from Dubai to Belize to China! (A monthly Rat Residency.)
‘GERMAN ARISTOCRAT’ … OR CON MAN?
Is he “Germany’s Most Popular Comedian” … or escaped criminal? Continental kitsch and dark humor with Gregory Levine as aristocratic criminal Gregor of Berlin. Suave, sinister, witty and sarcastic, Herr Gregor regales the audience with horrid tales of warped Teutonic childhood, decadence, and of course, show-biz life. Gregory/Gregor has been seen in the Capital Fringe, Frigid Festival, Travel Channel, The Duplex, the PIT Comedy Theater and Guinness Book of World Records.
YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE:
The Rat would not be complete without our Artist-in-Residence: the funny, brilliant, and bizarre Bill Chambers. He brought us Henry Rollins’ Children’s Book Read-a-long, David Lee Roth’s Therapy Session, Vincenzo the Chain-Smoking Monkey, Neil Diamond’s True Crime Confessions. Expect the unexpected from this hilarious performance-art polymath. (Among his accolades: Opened the Nov. 2018 Gotham Storytelling Festival, and slew at the NY Times Critic’s Pick Sideshow Goshko.)
HOSTED by Stand Up Comic/Storyteller, Canadian Import Jillian Thomas (MTV Live, The Buzz, The Toronto Show, Listen Missy and 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
