UNDER St. Marks Vaudeville Vaudevisuals Interview

Vaudevisuals interview with Trav SD

The American Vaudeville Theatre

It was a pleasure to sit down with Trav SD and hear what he had to say about the upcoming American Vaudeville Theatre show at Under St. Marks.

Trav S.D.’s American Vaudeville Theatre (est. 1995) returns to its Lower East Side origins with a regular series of intimate, informal, seat-of-the-pants semi-improvised revues mixing elements ranging from the old Bowery saloons to Dada Cabaret, to radio comedy, featuring sketches, monologues and songs, plus wonderful line-ups of Trav’s favorite variety, music and comedy acts — usually wonderfully unique people of all sorts. This month we’ll have KOO KOO THE BIRD GIRL (all the way from Australia)

, whip-cracking tap dancer MAVEN PECK PECK, funny lady JENNIFER GLICK,

clown duo JEFF AND BUTTONS and more TBA!

Stay tune for new shows each month!

For Tickets!

‘tinyDANGEROUSfun’ @ Cloud City – Sept 24th, 2013

An email was sent out to all the ‘regulars’ of tinyDANGEROUSfun that stated the following:

John Leo is getting married!!  And tinyDANGEROUSfun! has been out of commission all summer! (ever since the Sycamore bar basement got shut down by the man!)  What better way to surprise John Leo than by secretly getting the show back together in a new location?  He’ll show up thinking it’s for a date with his fiancé but then he’ll end up having to co-host the show!

Here are some photographs from the evening’s festivities!
