Sycamore Bar (1118 Cortelyou Rd., Brooklyn)
We give New York City’s craziest performers five minutes and 32 square feet, (if they stay on stage – many don’t), and tell them not to hurt the audience (too much). Variety, burlesque, performance-art, clown, music, poetry, drag, magic and just plain stupid humor; for the past year and a half thirty lucky audience members a month have crammed themselves into a basement way out in Ditmas Park, and have been subjected to Eleven Second Dance Parties, juggling knives, whip-smart pasties ‘n tassles, and other performers taking physical, psychological, social or spiritual risks. And they keep comin’ back for more! Where have you been?
