Corn Mo and The Love Show ‘Show’ at The Slipper Room

The Corn Mo & Love Show Show

Last Monday every month at The Slipper Room.

Corn Mo sings one of his tunes for the audience to start off the show.

Featuring the magic of Matthew Holtzclaw. Seen here doing a fire magic trick.

Stage presence is such an important part of the magical performance and Matthew has it.

Laurie Lee Anderson and Sarah Conrad danced up a storm on one of the numbers.

The evening had an edgy feel to it when “Stache Novak” showed up to perform his ‘male strip routine.”

Introduced as the ‘bathroom attendant‘ he quickly removed his pants for the audience’s delight.

And then Laurie Lee Anderson (the winner of Miss Coney Island USA 2020) started her amazing act.

Ridding herself of the dinosaur head she immediately titillated the audience. An audience pleaser for sure she got to her basics real soon. Rockin the house with her jump rope routine Laurie Lee Anderson was wonderful.

Entertaining the audience with her unique looks and style.

Casanova’s Great Escape! The ultimate adventurer, Casanova is legendary for scandalous sexcapades that surpass Hugh Hefner. But seducing his way through the erotic capitals of Europe was not all he was famous for. Vocal cartoonist Zero Boy riffs off Casanova’s 3,600-page memoir to bring you the world’s most famous lover in his daring escape from solitary confinement in Venice.
Entertainer and “vocal cartoonist” Zero Boy is an East Village icon renowned for his unique blend of sound and mime, the results being akin to a performed comic book. A prolific entertainer, his solo comedic routines have been featured throughout the U.S. and Europe in traditional theater, vaudeville, burlesque, festivals, stand-up comedy, television, radio, film, digital media/art as well as benefits and special events.
He has performed at Joe’s Pub, Town Hall, Cooper Union Hall, Slipper Room, and the NY Public Library with The Moth. On television, his vocal acrobatics were featured in Fox and His unique sound talents and character voices have led to performances on numerous radio shows. He regularly performed a special “Stump Zero Boy” segment on NPR’s The Next Big Thing, which gave listeners a chance to commission a short-form radio cartoon by emailing the station a one-sentence scenario.

THE THEREMIN
Invented 1919 by Russian electro-physicist Lev Sergejewitch Termen, the Theremin is the only instrument that generates sound without being touched. Notoriously hard to play, it is one of the first electronic instruments that inspired the creation of synthesizers in future generations. Historically, the theremin is one of the earliest electronic instruments, introduced to audiences at the beginning of the 20th century. Subsequently, it served as the basis from which electronic musical instruments of the 20th century were later developed. Although originally intended for classical music performance, the theremin instead found its success supplying ‘eerie’ background music for countless motion pictures. Whether that it is due to its unusual frequency and vibrato effects, or the challenge posed upon the player to master its technique, the theremin has never been a widely played instrument.

Today, among fields of electronic musicians, much more are rediscovering the potential of the theremin and exploring its complex and expressive sounds, pitches, movements, and gestures through various styles and media. In 1966 the Beach Boy’s Brian Wilson put the Theremin to work in “Good Vibrations.” In 1967 Theremins showed up on Captain Beefheart‘s landmark “Safe as Milk” and in 1969, Led Zeppelin anthem “Whole Lotta Love” featured a Theremin. Today artists such as Jon Spencer, Portishead, Nine Inch Nails, Elvis Costello, Trey Anastasio, and Simon & Garfunkel have put the instrument to use.

Leon Theremin emigrated to New York City in late 1927, quickly establishing a laboratory dedicated to the scientific study of electronic sound; in April of 1930, a Ten Piece Theremin Orchestra premiered on the stage of Carnegie Hall to enthusiastic response. A decade later, Theremin was whisked back to the Soviet Union (involuntarily, some have said) and placed in Butyrka prison, eventually working in a Soviet think-tank to develop a covert listening device for the Soviet government. Following Theremin’s abrupt departure and reassignment, his instrument inspired a handful of virtuosos, most notably Clara Rockmore and Samuel J. Hoffman, but ultimately fell into obscurity until…
