Comedy Cabaret at Don’t Tell Mama: Everything Was Guerrilla
Stand-up comedian Joe Orecchio faced a choice at the start of the pandemic. Would he grieve the state of his show, Comedy Cabaret, and it’s unknown future? Or would he use this opportunity to make the show everything it could be? Lucky for his audience, he chose the latter. Tanya Moberly, the Booking Manager at Don’t Tell Mama, a world famous venue in the heart of New York City, was eager to welcome him back to showcase his new vision. Join Tania Mohammad as she visits another small but mighty performance space striving to survive in the shadow of the pandemic along with the brilliant artists who make venues like Don’t Tell Mama great.

3 Dollar Bill: COVID-Conscious Queens
In early May, Tania ventured out to 3 Dollar Bill, an energetic gay bar in Brooklyn that was one of the first places in the city to bring back live drag performances.
