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!

This month, our special guests are Jeff and Buttons!

The theme of this month is a tribute to Spring!

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.

AJ Silver
AJ Silver
AJ Silver did not let growing up in the Bronx, New York get in the way of pursuing his dream of becoming a wild west star. He learned how to ride horses on the trails of the Bronx's Pelham Bay Park and at eleven years old he saw trick riding at Madison Square Garden and found his calling.

He started his performing career as a professional trick rider and performed in countless rodeos and wild west shows across the USA. He was one of the only riders in North America to perform the dangerous stunt of passing under the belly of a galloping horse. While on the rodeo trail he learned and perfected the art of trick roping which he now features in his high energy western act that also includes bullwhip artistry, comedy and the boleadoras from Argentina.

AJ's act has been featured around the globe from NYC's Madison Square Garden to Moscow's Red Square. He has appeared in European cabarets and circuses as well as international TV, prestigious corporate events and nightclubs. All the worlds a stage for this talented and unique entertainer.
