The Corn Mo and Love Show Show!

On the fourth 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 questions charaded by the Love Show Dancers with prizes of insignificant worth!

This month, our special guest is Magic Brian, the conjuror of comedy!

The theme of this month is harvesting fun as we fill your cornucopia with sexy good times!

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 Hammerstien 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.

Magic Brian

Thousands of audiences around the world have been entertained with Magic Brian’s outrageous and unique comedy-magic and sideshow act. He has performed in 16 countries, worked the sideshow stage of New York’s famous Coney Island Sideshow, and was featured on The Late Show with David Letterman. He has appeared at the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe festivals, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Street Performers World Championships as well as a variety of festivals throughout Canada and Europe.

In 2005 Magic Brian was presented with the Sideshow Preservation Award at the annual Sideshow Gathering, he won the People’s Choice award for Best Performer in Canada in 2006, and for Best Act in Germany in 2011.

Performing street, stage and close-up magic, his original and eclectic repertoire ranges from the miraculous production of an impossible amount of sponge bunnies out of thin air to an unbelievable escape from a straitjacket and chains. He makes objects disappear and re-appear in strange and unusual places, and you can also find him swallowing razor blades, eating light bulbs and hammering nails into his head. And yes, this is what he does for a living! Magic Brian incorporates the old with the new - using inspiration from circus sideshow acts as well as classic magic effects, then adding his own unique and humorous twist to it all. His goal: to make people laugh and smile, and maybe even soil themselves.


Nigel Blackstorm

The Heavy Metal Magician, born Gareth Blackthunder, was raised in a small town in the south of England. As a youth he focused on his two passions: heavy metal and magic. When he turned 16 he changed his name to Nigel Blackstorm because he argued that his given name didn’t sound “heavy” enough.
As is the case with us all, Nigel grew to adulthood and was confronted with choosing his career path. As his love for metal and magic had only grown over time, and since he had no desire to wear a suit, Nigel decided to devote his life to both his arts, founding the magical heavy metal cover band, Lordz of Illuzzion, in 1991. The band toured the world with their unique approach to music and released three albums that garnered minor attention.
In 1998, following a sold out performance at the world famous Orange County Fair, the other three Lordz abruptly quit the band. Nigel was devastated by this surprising and untimely break-up. Driven by rage and passion and channeling the spirits of Houdini and Ozzy Osbourne, he put the pieces of his life back together and thus emerged The Heavy Metal Magician. With the skills of an alchemist, Nigel blended heavy metal music and the world of magic, creating the unique genre: "heavy magic." Be prepared to have your mind blown, and ladies: please control yourselves.
