Due to Hurricane Sandy, Halloween has been moved to December!!
THE ANNA COPA CABANNA SHOW- Halloween Special! has been moved to December!!
It’s a NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS! Silent Night, Deadly night!!!
SO SPOOKTACULAR! And OOOOOOOOOOOOOhhhh so SCARY!
We finally got around to seeing the always entertaining, on or off stage, Anna Copa Cabanna and her Variety Show at Joe’s Pub a good seven or eight months ago. It was just as magically campy, wonderfully honest and filled with lightning bolts of charisma and hysterical moments as we had expected. Hurricane Sandy has wreaked havoc on much of New Jersey, Long Island, The Rockaways and Lower Manhattan all the way up to The Bronx…basically anywhere that’s relatively close to the rivers on the East or West. One thing that is unacceptable for sure is the fact that the bitch of a storm has misplaced a lot of entertainment in New York City and even caused the cancellation of the Annual Halloween Parade!
Originally scheduled a few days after Halloween, Ms. Copa Cabanna returns to the fantastic show space that is Joe’s Pub for a Spooky Rock and Roll Variety Show featuring tons of guest performers and (we’re certain) tons of laugh out loud moments and painfully stretched smile inducing hijinks. The new date set for the show is Friday, December 14th at 11:30pm!
Plus you’ll get to witness the glorious Joy Dragland perform live, she’s one of our favourite people in the universe!
We’ll see you there!

If you are a fan of the 70s and 80s TV Variety shows, you will love THE ANNA COPA CABANNA SHOW!
Australian showgirl Anna Copa Cabanna’s Rock and Roll Variety Show draws inspiration from The Muppet Show, Solid Gold, The Pee Wee Herman Show, and The Carol Burnett Show!.THE ANNA COPA CABANNA SHOW’s primary goal is transporting the audience to a world of glamor, humor, overly earnest but beautiful dancing, and classic rock and roll!
The TRUTH- in a sequin leotard.
Along with her punk band The MG5,
Anna breathes new life into classic tunes you LOVE, while her sparkling originals reflect upon New York City’s politics, small dogs, F trains, and malnourished boys with her little xylophone and voracious voice.
“Anna Copa Cabanna’s shows are imaginative and relevant… There is a lot of affection shown for the traditions of show-biz, as well as plenty of fun and play”
“sparkly unisex unitards, games with prizes, punk rock, freaking out, and other forms of miscellaneous unruliness” -VICE
“Anna kept the crowd roaring with laughter with her wit and off the cuff remarks….definitely a bang for your recession buck!”
And last but not least…here’s a lightning speed introduction to the wacky world of Anna Copa Cabanna to both tease and prepare you for what you’re getting yourself into
