After a string of sold out shows and acclaim, the Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret returns to the Pub! This balls-to-the-wall drag cabaret is hosted by Martha Graham Cracker, who may be the world's tallest and hairiest drag queen. Backed by a four-piece live band, Martha Graham Cracker, hailed as "The Drag Queen King" by the Philadelphia Inquirer, performs new arrangements and mashups of songs by artists ranging from Prince and Crowded House to Motley Crue and Nina Simone, and a bit of everything in between. The cabaret was Jump Philly Magazine's Top 5 Most Exciting Musical Experiences of 2013 and has one numerous editorial awards in Philadelphia, including Best Drag Show and Best Gay Night Out in Philadelphia magazine.
Martha Graham Cracker is played by Dito van Reigersberg, co-founding co-artistic director of Philadelphia's Obie-winning Pig Iron Theatre Company. The character was born in van Reigersberg's East Village kitchen while he was attending the Martha Graham School of Dance.

Latrell Jackson is getting married ya'll! It's time to throw a bachelor party on the set of his newest show "LATRELL!" a.k.a. "The Most Fabulous News Broadcast Known to Man!" Though Latrell is known for his outrageous and his unapologetic behavior, there is more to him than meets the eye. Under those leopard print leggings and body glitter lays razor sharp social satire and political comedy. Like the love child of RuPaul and Stephen Colbert or even the grandson of Moms Mabley, Latrell has his finger on the pulse of current events and social trends. With no allegiances to political parties, ideologies or even the one and only Oprah, Latrell takes on the socio-political zeitgeist with no mercy (all while picking out wedding cakes) in this one-night-only event! Male strippers not included.

Every month, Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments bring their funny yet gut-wrenching and outrageous performance to the Pub. Led by the singing tour-de-force Bridget Everett, "a pure id on the rampage" (The New York Times), the band has sold-out venues nationally and developed a cult-like following with their edgy, sexed-up, punk rock cabaret. Each performance is as explosive as it is unpredictable, welcoming special guests like Fred Armisen, Patti LuPone, Flea, Dan Finnerty, Tonya Pinkins, Marc Shaiman, Peaches, Neal Medlyn and Jake Shears while fans such as Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Andy Cohen, Sarah Jessica Parker and Lily Taylor can be seen laughing hysterically in the audience.
