Morning Thaw / An Evening At The Starlite Motor Inn
An Evening At The Starlite Motor Inn
Rapid fire banter, gags and sketches; dancing, singing, psychics, audience questions and magic! The best of vaudeville, burlesque, comedy and alcoholism come together when you enter the lounge at The Starlite Motor Inn.
You may remember hostess Rhonda Smith Duffy Coris from her days as a groovy movie actress/singer/extra in the late 60's and early 70's. Well, she's back and drinking it up with sidekick Larry Dupree (former blues oboe player and bottle cap tap dancer), hosting NY's best performers at The Starlite, an homage to the variety shows of the era. It's part Laugh In, part Intervention, part The Sonny and Cher Show. It's like Burns and Allen took acid.
Cast includes Adrianne Frost (The Daily Show, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, Best Week Ever), Ben Hersey (Lifegame, Late Night With Conan O'Brien) with special guests Jenn Dodd (Buttski and Glasscock's New Talent Blowout), Bob Greenberg (Law and Order, Ed), Tim Girrbach (Squirm and Germ, Appolo Live), William Mullin (Comedy Covo, Caroline's) and Katie Hartman (Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting).
