Guest Event: The Corn Mo & Love Show Show!
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!
For the July edition, our special guests are Eytan Mirsky and Harvest Moon!
The theme of this month is a tribute to the 70's variety hour!

The Love Show
The Love Show is a theatrical dance company that combines cabaret, ballet, contemporary, rock, comedy and theater into creative performances all over the US and beyond. The Love Show has entertained all audiences, rocking stages from The Hammerstein Ballroom to The Public's Shakespeare in The Park. The Love Show has been commissioned to perform original choreography for clients including Banksy, Veuve Clicquot, Vogue Magazine and TNT.
The Love Show's production work includes their very popular holiday show, "Nutcracker: Rated R", which ran for 7 sold out seasons in New York and also toured in Tokyo. The Love Show also has three other full length productions, "Dance Mayhem: A Grindhouse Ballet", "SEVERED: The Tragic Loves of Frankenstein's Monster" (premiered to a sold-out house at Highline Ballroom), and "Boomstick Ballet: A Rock Opera tribute to Bruce Campbell".
The Love Show has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, PAPER Magazine, and TONY, and The New York Times sent a reporter to exclusively follow the troupe's exploits on Bastille Day. Recently, The Love Show performed at a resort in Egypt for a live and electronic music festival, premiered a cameo piece commissioned by The Public Theater in their run of "Twelfth Night" at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, danced in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, created exclusive choreographed and directed content for TNT Drama's season premiere party and performed a cabaret in Rome.
Eytan Mirsky is a singer and songwriter best known for the title songs he contributed to the award-winning independent films "American Splendor," "The Tao of Steve" and "Happiness." He has put out seven albums, the most recent of which is "If Not Now...Later" (2019).
Harvest Moon, also known as “The Sultry Siren of Burlesque”, began her career by founding the legendary dance troupe The Cantankerous Lollies in 1995. Miss Moon’s troupe quickly became San Francisco’s premiere showgirl act, known for their Montmartre-style cabarets, including rousing Can-Cans which would’ve made Toulouse Lautrec proud.
Throughout the late 90s, The Cantankerous Lollies performed in a diverse number of West Coast venues, including many of San Francisco’s top nightclubs (such as Bimbo’s, The Fillmore, The Great American Music Hall, as well as The San Francisco Museum of Natural History). In 1997 The Cantankerous Lollies were the first troupe ever to perform at the Miss Exotic World Pageant. Under Harvest’s direction, the Lollies won “Best Dance Troupe” two years in a row. They later earned a star in the Exotic World Museum’s Hall Of Fame.
The Bay Guardian awarded the troupe “Best Can-Can And Burlesque Review” in the 2001 edition of the annual Best Of The Bay, the first year the Bay Guardian had such a category. The Cantankerous Lollies gained front page exposure in the New Orlean’s Times-Picayune arts section during that year’s annual Tease-a-rama Burlesque convention, the first of it’s kind in the world. Both Harvest Moon herself and The Cantakerous Lollies have been spotlighted in the fully illustrated book BURLESQUE AND THE NEW BUMP AND GRIND–a comprehensive history of Burlesque from the origin right up through today. A life-sized print of “Harvest Moon Y El Famoso Bailar De Abanicos” (the same one shown here on this site) has been featured in the Diesel Denim gallery in NYC’s SoHo, and has been published around the world in various art/design books. Her image has appeared in GQ , Glamour Magazine, New York Magazine, Animal Magazine , Psychology Today, and Pulphope.
Harvest has also performed with members of Cirque Du Soleil in the 2005 production of “The Love Show”. Harvest Moon performs regularly in New York City and, increasingly, internationally . Miss Moon’s emerging solo work has been noted for its elegance and classic form. She blends vintage Burlesque style with a unique and surprising element borrowed from the circus’ big-top. Her acts are noted for their stunning and original combinations of contortion, classic Burlesque stylings, and humor. Harvest has opened for James Brown in NYC and performed with the artist Matthew Barney.
In the summer of 2008 Harvest toured the Netherlands and Italy in a special showcase of American Burlesque called “Cabaret New Burlesque”. From her homebase in New York City she continues to push the frontiers of modern Burlesque with each new act.
