On the Moon Arts Holiday Party: An Intergalactic Variety Festival
On the Moon Arts Holiday Party: An Intergalactic Variety Festival
On the Moon Arts was born in 2014 with a focus on representing the unrepresented and nurturing unusual talents across many genres, whether it be comedy, music, drag, dance, improv, storytelling, talks shows and more. The motivation behind starting this irregular variety festival was to shine a light on the quirky roster as well as its many friends and inspirations. Come and enjoy our holiday party!

So bring your dancing shoes, and leave your inhibitions at the door--it's time to party!

Adira Amram has been performing her sly, sexy and subversive musical comedy all over NYC and beyond. In 2008 she realized that what she really needed was a backing band and dancers. Thus The Experience was born! Since then they have had the opportunity to perform with some of the greatest performers of all time! In 2009 they toured North America with Kid Koala's The Slew and in 2011 made their UK debut at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival as the house band for Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler'sHot Tub. While in Edinburgh they were invited to perform at the BBC Comedy Presents: Best of Festival Live Show Finale. In NYC they are the house band for Arden Myrin & Lisa Delarios' monthly comedy explosion, The Party Machine as well as the live late night talk show, Night of The Living with Kurt Braunohler. In 2011 they were named Best Musical Comedy Act at the ECNY Awards. In 2009 they released the album Hot Jams For Teens on North Street Records.

Alex English
Alex English
Alex English is a Stand up Comedian, Writer & Actor based in New York City, by way of Detroit, Michigan. He likes to let people know where’s from, so that it scares people - it sometimes, almost, never scares anyone.

Alex has opened for Comedians James Adomian (IFC), Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live) and Hadiyah Robinson (BET), and has even performed in the New York Comedy festival! Not bad for a guy that sometimes wears his underwear backward, right?

Catch him regularly blazing the stage at Stand Up NY comedy club, or co-hosting his free monthly “Cool” comedy show at The Standing Room, In Long Island City, Queens every last Wednesday of the month. He’s traveling these days too, so look out for him in your town! (especially if you’re on jack’d).
