THE McKITTRICK HOTEL, HOME OF SLEEP NO MORE, PRESENTS
MIC DROP WITH MURRAY HILL
LEGENDARY LIP SYNC BATTLES EVERY MONTH IN MANDERLEY BAR
New York, NY (September 19, 2019) – The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC), home of Sleep No More, announces Mic Drop with Murray Hill, a new party on select Thursdays in Manderley Bar. Upcoming dates are September 26, October 24, and November 21.
The McKittrick’s velvet-draped cocktail lounge is home to a new monthly series of lip sync battles. Mic Drop, hosted by “Mr. Showbiz” himself Murray Hill, challenges audiences to duel live on stage for outrageous prizes and competitive glory. Guests compete for the chance to be crowned “Lip-Sync Champ of The Night,” while resident DJ A-Ball spins dance and pop music hits.
Murray Hill is a NYC legend, comedian, host, and international entertainer. Dubbed “The King of Comedy” (Time Out), he is one of the most sought-after hosts in the biz. He currently also stars in The McKittrick’s Bartschland Follies, a weekly burlesque cabaret hosted by NYC icon Susanne Bartsch, and has toured extensively with Dita Von Teese and alt-cabaret provocateur Bridget Everett.
Over his career, Murray has been recognized in “Best of New York” lists in Time Out, PAPER and New York Magazine; inducted into PAPER’s “Nightlife Hall of Fame;” selected as one of OUT magazine’s “Top 100” influential performers (twice!); and included in New York Magazine’s “Fifty Most Iconic Gender Benders of All Time.” He has performed at the top showrooms and festivals on the planet and headlined his own show at Caroline’s on Broadway.
Mic Drop is the latest addition to Manderley Bar’s repertoire, joining Friday residents, MK Groove Orchestra, and Saturday house band, Bassey and The Heathens.
