tinyDANGEROUSfun!

8pm the Last Tuesday of Each Month!

“It's like getting in trouble in your friends' parents basement!”                                     audience member

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 haveyou been? Get yourself to tinyDANGEROUSfun!....if you DARE!

NOT FOR KIDS

Sycamore Bar Basement

1118 Cortelyou Rd. at Westminster Road (Q train to Cortelyou)
Brooklyn, NY

$10 at the door

"fantastamazing!"
