FACEBOYZ FOLLIEZ: RELIEF!
Decades-long Downtown open mic and variety show host Faceboy (aka Francis R. Hall) gets plenty of mileage from gallows humor and the as-of-late clinically depressed persona he’s laid on thick to much humorous effect — but for the most part, it’s an act that has more to do with satire than serotonin.
Case in point: “Faceboyz Folliez” — that monthly burlesque-meets-vaudeville dark ride of depravity — returns to Bar 82 with its frown turned upside down, all for the benefit of those facing the grim reality of post-Sandy NYC. Proceeds (plus, we’re guessing, funds drawn from the cast’s skipped therapy sessions and prescription med refills) will go to hurricane relief efforts.
Ten dollars buys you the right to stare at the likes of St. Rev. Jen Miller, Velocity Chyaldd, Stormy Leather, Amanda Whip, Reverend Mother Flash and Dick and Duane — with Courtney Fathom Sell-directed short films from ASS Studios, and films/trailers directed, shot and edited by Cheyenne Picardo.
Special guest Scooter Pie and musical guest Dusty Santamaria will bring up the rear, while the Train Wreck Audience Participation segment shovels premium grade coal into the runaway train. Did we mention they promise “drink specials for our drunks?” Sold!
Sat., Nov. 17, 9pm-midnight at Bar 82 (136 2nd Ave., btw. St. Marks Place & 9th St.). Tickets are $10 at the door. For info, call 212-228-8636 or visit bar82nyc.com. Also visit faceboyzfolliez.com and facebook.com/faceboyzfolliez.
