Guest event: The 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.
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)
Magic Brian has been entertaining young and old with his unique brand of comedy-magic and sideshow for over 20 years and got his start in comedy clubs and variety shows in New York City. He has toured with the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus and has taken his show around the world, performing in 18 countries and more than 50 cities. He has appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman, VH1, Good Day New York and has performed at the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe Festivals and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
