44 Charlton: A Variety Show

Bite into a hot slice of NYC life every first Friday of the month at 44 Charlton — the world’s first and only variety show smashing together the gutsiest comedy, music, dance, theater, spoken word, and genre-bending performances on a single stage, hosted by the sometimes salty, always sexy Julian Fleisher.  

Come for the cheap drinks. Stay to become a part of spontaneous genius. The wheels might come off! The clothes might come off! Bring your expectations to the door, then pick them up again after the show. We promise not to rifle through them while you're tripping on our awesomeness.

About the Host

From Lincoln Center to downtown dive bars, all of New York is host Julian Fleisher's playground and stage. He's performed with, for or adjacent to an astonishing number of nightlife luminaries. Singer, writer, producer and host of WNYC Studios' The Naked American Songbook, he's never won a Peabody, but he was named "Best Calves Below 14th Street" by a committee of very earnest businessmen. Google him; we don’t have the space to do his accolades justice.
