Saturday August 10, 10:30pm Show Features –

Michel Francoeur – If you’ve seen his Comedy Residency at the critically acclaimed Live at The Music Inn variety show on West 4th Street, or caught his Acid-Jazz parody trio, you’ll know why the Rat booked Michel. He’s subtle, sly and hilarious.

Aneya Marie is a fire-eater, fearless acrobat, and veteran of national-touring Modern Gypsies Productions,  She’ll be bringing bizarre stunning avant garde face-painting motion art AND wild whip stunts! You’ll want to get closer to watch… and then maybe just move out of the radius of this wild performance artist. (She was preempted by the Manhattan blackout last month. WATCH a sample of her Darth Maul act!)

David Bell is back! Pianist, comedian, choral singer, mathematician, entertainer Bell pulls out all the stops. “In his wicked youth, he studied operatic performance and made his Carnegie Hall debut in 1996, later performing opera through the US, Canada, Europe, and on NPR’s ‘All Things Considered.’” (You can see David regularly in a dazzling musical-theater-improvisation team Sally Tomato at the PIT and Magnet Theaters.) 

How to describe Sammy Tramp?  A gifted physical comedian, a hobo filmmaker, postmodern take on Charlie Chaplin, a model of retro sartorial splendour – and a wonderful treat to watch. Sammy comes to the Ten-Foot Rat fresh from her National Touring production, Crimson Frolics: Black & White Silent Circus and is a member of Keystone Vice Cops: The 1920s for Adults.

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 and Henry Rollins’ Joke Book for Kids,  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.)

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.

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
