Guest event: Secret Variety Society Presents...
The Secret Variety Society is proud to present four of New York’s most wonderfully weird variety artists for an evening of debauchery and insignificant joy.
Come revel, laugh and feel morally superior to the hardest working acts on the scene in this weird, intimate and wonderful show.
Matt Roper is a comedian, writer and neo-vaudevillian. He recently made his NYC theater debut portraying Chico Marx, eldest of the iconic Marx Brothers, in I'll Say She Is: The Marx Brothers Musical. He performs internationally with his alter-ego Wilfredo, a powerhouse musical comedy creation with two albums, a short film and countless tours to his credit. He is a founder member of The Secret Variety Society and the proud recipient of a Malcolm Hardee Award – presented annually at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
SABRINA CHAP is a Brooklyn based cabaret performer and raconteur. She’s got classical piano skills, the ballad lyrics of Tom Waits, the onstage antics of Phyllis Diller and the voice of a whiskey angel. Described as ‘Rousing!’ by the New Yorker, her sets are a ragtime stompin’ good time, full of laughs, heartbreaks, and just plain good songwriting.
Noted for her live shows, where she mixes high theatricality with gut punches of truth, she has graced some of the biggest stages and the smallest barrooms a broad could find, including THE LOWRY (Manchester), CAFÉ DE PARIS (London), THEATRE BIZARRE (Detroit), SPIEGELTENT (NY, with Bindlestiff Cirkus) and more. “In her stage show she draws you in, disarms you with humour, and then makes you sit up and listen to what she has to say. The end result is intoxicating.” (Polari Magazine, UK)
The Great Dubini
Master of the sleight-of-hand arts in action, the Great Dubini is regularly seen plying his trade at the crossroads of the world, right outside the Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Times Square. Familiar to Downtown audiences from his barnstorming appearances in both The Love Show and Sleep No More.
