Saturday October 12, 10:30pm Show Features –
GORGEOUS SWEEPING MUSIC:
Swoon to Andalusia, the eclectic ensemble whose members blend rock and jazz with ancient soulful sounds of Spain and North Africa. Welcome back!
DARK & VERY FUNNY:
Umlaut Sketch returns! Sharp, witty, caustic, the infamous Umlaut duo has brought to life nihilistic History Channel writers, intellectual adult-cinema reviewers, and occasionally tried to murder each other onstage… for a laugh. (WATCH them impersonate David Bowie & Bing Crosby: an early appearance!)
GOLDEN PIPES, STUNNING TALENT:
Destiny Dunkle (creator, “Almost Gorgeous” in the NYC Fringe Festival) is a one-of-a-kind pianist, storyteller, performance-artist and singer you won’t forget. She weaves witty, poignant, filthy and sophisticated tales of dating, affairs, heartbreak and self-love in grand musical-theatrical style.
(SEE her Comic Poetry: (very NSFW)) (SONG: ‘Forever MILF’)
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 in Exile” … 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 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.)
…AND More to Come!
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
