Guest Event: The Corn Mo & Love Show Show!

Guest Event: The Corn Mo & Love Show Show!

On the last 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. Charming troubadour and raconteur Corn Mo brings his patented combination of original songs, quirky, off-kilter anecdotes, and charisma, framed by The Love Show Dancers' dance performance, burlesque, and saucy surprises! Trivia contests entertain with questions charaded by the Love Show Dancers and prizes of insignificant worth!

Our special guest is Chris Rozzi, the Peter Sellers of New York City!

This month's show is a tribute to the 70’s variety show!
