Saturday July 13, 10:30pm Show Features –
Biting lyrics, soaring operatic arias, soulful heartaches: Samantha Echo has been described as “Comic Con’s Kate Bush” (Janna Pelle) and “one of the smartest, most poetic, exciting, engaging young singers out there today” (Suzanne W. Stout, Theater 80). She captivated the Rat’s audience in her last appearance and we’re thrilled to have Samantha back.
Violence, drugs, love, creation and human destiny: Leesa Liquidsteel, a founder of the Romulus and Good Bison dance ensembles, performance artist, and storyteller, stuns audiences from Austin to NYC with her blend of lights, sounds and visceral physical art. (WATCH Liquidsteel at Ten-Foot Rat)
Leopard-prints, a sofa for the beach and no apologies: after taking voice direction from actress Jane Lynch, Elyse DeLucci brings salty humor and realness from married life on Manhattan’s Upper West Side – yeah, that place.
DANGEROUS FUNNY CIRCUS:
Prepare yourself for Aneya Marie: fire-eater, fearless acrobat, facial artiste, terrifying mime, Cheerleader(!) A veteran of national-touring Modern Gypsies Productions, Aneya Marie may be bigger than the theater itself – especially doing her Darth Maul Whip Act!
‘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.
The Rat would not be complete without our Artist-in-Residence: the funny, brilliant, and bizarre Bill Chambers. He brought us 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
