Champagne Jerry’s Clubhouse™ is a brand new, semi-regular show wherein Champagne Jerry is your host at a party where he and a bunch of featured artists: comedians, musicians, and people who just like champagne hang out doing the best performances you've ever seen in your life.
This month's guests:
Champagne Jerry has been called “New York’s finest underground rapper,” named one of the top ten best performers in New York by Time Out, profiled in Rolling Stone, Brooklyn Vegan and Interview magazine, among others, and been the musical guest on The Chris Gethard Show on Fusion TV. Champagne Jerry is a music and performance project of Neal Medlyn alongside collaborators Max Tannone, Adam Ad-Rock Horovitz and his onstage entourage of Tannone, Sophia Cleary, Farris Craddock and the Ghost of Champagne Past. Champagne Jerry continues Medlyn's prior work with pop stars in his Pop Star Series. The aim is to continuously create and provide the most significant moments in everyone's lives. He has routinely sold out shows at Joe's Pub in New York City where he had a year-long residency and has played the Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Kitchen, Union Pool, Pianos, and various rock clubs, parties, Walmart parking lots, art venues and theaters on tour across the U.S. and internationally in Vienna, Austria and London, England. He had a new show and album commissioned by New York Live Arts. His album and videos for his albums “For Real, You Guys” and “The Champagne Room” are available now everywhere.
