Guest Event: The Corn Mo and the Love Show Show!

The Corn Mo and Love Show Show!

On the fourth Monday of every month, two of NYC's most beloved underground acts join forces to bring a monthly, intimate evening of entertainment to the legendary Slipper Room. As Corn Mo is off touring Europe this month, this show offers a very special treat with our guest host The Great Dubini, magician extraordinaire. Dubini, along with The Love Show Dancers' dance performance, burlesque, and saucy surprises take you and your date to the Vegas variety theater and back.

This month, our special guest is AJ Silver, the cowboy from the Bronx.

The theme of this month is Valentines in Vegas!
