Celebrated New York stage actor and stand-up comedian Mario Cantone makes his Café Carlyle debut, June 20 – 23. He gained critical acclaim with his Tony-nominated one-man show Laugh Whore, from its appearance at the Cort Theatre on Broadway to the Showtime special. The previous theatre season saw Cantone starring in the Tony-winning Assassins by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman. Both hit shows were directed by four-time Tony-winner Joe Mantello. An accomplished stage actor, Cantone has appeared on Broadway in the role of “Buzz” in Terrence McNally’s award-winning dramatic comedy, Love! Valor! Compassion! and “Stephano” in Shakespeare’s The Tempest at the Public Theater. Mario Cantone starred in the 2007 release of Sony’s animated film, Surf’s Up, and appeared in the hilarious film The Aristocrats. On television, Cantone can currently be seen as “Anthony,” Charlotte’s wedding-planner-with-attitude, now that HBO’s Sex and the City is in syndication on TBS, E! and many other stations, as well as the Sex and the City movie franchise.

 

 

Performances will take place Tuesday – Friday at 8:45pm. Reservations made by phone at 212.744.1600 are $50 ($100 for premium seating, $30 for bar seating) Tuesday – Thursday; $75 ($125 for premium seating, $45 for bar seating) on Friday. Reservations can also be made online via Ticketweb. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street, at Madison Avenue).

 

 

On Comedy Central, Cantone’s performances have been featured on The USO Comedy Tour, Chappelle’s Show, and various other network specials. Cantone has performed his irreverent stand-up comedy at a wide range of venues, including Carnegie Hall, where he warmed up jazz great Shirley Bassey, to performances at Atlantic City’s Borgata and Atlantic Club, headlining at Gotham Comedy and Caroline’s on Broadway. Over the years, his routines have included musical parodies of Judy Garland, Jim Morrison, Peggy Lee, Bruce Springsteen and Liza Minnelli. Cantone got his start hosting the local New York children’s show Steampipe Alley, where the comic slipped in sly pop culture innuendo that adults could enjoy. His other television credits include appearances on Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Oprah, Martha, The Today Show, and throughout its extensive run, multiple appearances on ABC’s The View.

About Café Carlyle at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel

Originally opened in 1955, Café Carlyle is New York City’s bastion of classic cabaret entertainment, a place where audiences experience exceptional performers at close range in an exceedingly elegant setting. Since composer Richard Rodgers moved in as The Carlyle’s first tenant, music has been an essential part of The Carlyle experience. No place is that more evident than in the Café Carlyle.

 

Café Carlyle is known for talents including Woody Allen, who regularly appears on Monday evenings to play with the Eddy Davis New Orleans jazz band. For three decades, Café Carlyle was synonymous with the legendary Bobby Short, who thrilled sell-out crowds for 36 years. His spirit lives on through the music at Café Carlyle.

 

Continuing the tradition of the 1930s supper club, Café Carlyle features original murals created by French artist Marcel Vertès, the Oscar-winning art director of the 1952 Moulin Rouge.
