The Slipper Room is a great performance space! Like a ‘speakeasy’ in the Lower East Side.
Beautifully decorated and intimate as well. Most of the shows there are of a ‘burlesque’ nature.
I was there on Wednesday and photographed the ‘variety acts’ since this blog is all about ‘eccentric variety’.
Mel Frye (James Habacker) hosts the show Glitter Gutter every Wednesday evening at 10 pm.
Mel Frye – the host is a rather eccentric character that proclaims to be driven around in a limo with a chauffeur.
Ellie Steingraeber – Hula Hoop mistress of madness performs a wild finale.
Strap aerialist ‘Amadeus’ was wonderful in his ‘audition’ for the show.
Gal Friday started her act off with a nice tame ‘bump and grind’.
Carla Rhodes with Cecil Sinclair were hysterical.
Velvet Crayon prepares his tongue for the upcoming pickle sucking portion of the act.
The Slipper Room has several shows each evening. Be sure to check out their calendar here.
