The Ohio-born host at Splash Bar and Glammy nominee for Best Dressed -- won't leave the house unless her looks can kill.
Zebra Baby
Zebra Baby
"'I got a spaceship ayo it´s actually my mini van girls call it well hung, I call it son of Sam, killin it killin it...' Lyrics from one of their most fierce exciting songs. Zebra Baby is successfully creating & performing sexually charged, borderline offensive, and in your face music. Too hot & too unique to classify, the band Zebra Baby formed out of the womb of Urban Outfitters, two co-workers, Char Johnson of Simian Mobile´s Disco 'Hustler' and Ali Ramos dj/mc from Oakland, California, got together one day in Char´s Washington Heights apartement and started recording & then quickly booking all over NYC. Their style is a healthy dose of 2 Live Crew, Beastie Boys mixed with a little bit of Talking Heads." - Gogo Yoko
Hosted by Murray Hill & Merrie Cherry
NYC nightlife legend, comedian, and renowned entertainer MURRAY HILL, “the hardest working middle-aged man in show business,” is a relentless retro shtick slinger, larger-than-life personality and freewheeling ad-libber. Murray’s razor sharp wit and frenetic showman antics have delighted folks worldwide for over a decade. The New York Times anointed Murray “Downtown’s New ‘It’ Boy.” He’s been included in “Best of New York” lists in the Village Voice, Time Out, Paper and New York Magazine; inducted into Paper’s Nightlife Hall of Fame; selected as OUT magazine’s Top 100 influential performers; and named one of the top 12 gender-bending performers in NYC by Time Out.

He recently was the U.S. Showbiz Correspondent for Channel 4/UK’s show “Dirty Digest.” He’s had a string of recent cameos such as: HBO’s Bored to Death, two episodes of STARZ’s Gravity, HBO’s Taxi Cab Confessions, BRAVO’s Real Housewives of New York, and The Murray Hill Show pilot for E4 in UK; music video for TV ON THE RADIO’s No Future Shock; and documentary Florent: Queen of the Meat Market.

Murray Hill is the premier and exclusive host for international burlesque superstar DITA VON TEESE. Murray hosted her live show “Strip Strip Hooray!” to a sold-out, record-breaking 10 shows at the famed ROXY on Sunset in Los Angeles. This summer, they toured Live Nation’s House of Blues venues and sold-out all dates. Murray will be touring with Dita on an multi-city tour in 2012.

Murray is New York’s “reigning patriarch of downtown performance” (New York Times). His eponymous The Murray Hill Show was the hottest ticket in town for a decade at such notorious joints as Fez, Mo Pitkin’s and The Zipper Factory. Murray’s annual sold-out A Murray Little Christmas is a “downtown institution” (New York Times) and the must-see wintertime cultural event for audiences of every perversion. He’s entertained celebrity friends, including Penelope Cruz and Pedro Almodóvar at Indochine, and hosted Marc Jacobs infamous holiday parties, Bust magazine’s 15th anniversary party at The Speigeltent, and his annual Oscar’s party at Joe’s Pub. Dubbed “The King of Comedy” by Time Out, he’s performed his comedy at top showrooms like Upright Citizen’s Brigade, Gotham Comedy Club, Comix, LA’s Billy Wilder Theater with Patton Oswalt, and headlined his own show at Caroline’s on Broadway.

As “the emcee of choice” (New York Magazine) in the neo-burlesque scene, Murray has hosted shows all over the world from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Canada, UK and more. This is Burlesque, the Off-Off-Broadway show Murray starred in and co-created, ran for over a year to packed houses, garnered critical praise, and attracted A-list celebrities. At London’s Arts Theatre, Murray was a guest host for the Immodesty Blaize Burlesque Show, the first ever show of its kind at this historic West End venue. He’s also hosted sold-out burlesque shows at the Bloomsbury Ballroom (London), MTV Italia’s opening party for the Venice Film Festival, NY International Burlesque Festival, The Birchmere (Virginia) and Just For Laughs (Montreal) directed by Thierry Mugler.

Murray crosses over to many scenes, and has toured with Le Tigre, hosted The Gossip and introduced the Beastie Boys, Antony and The Johnsons, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, to name a few. Murray had a lead role in the internationally released video for The Gossip’s “Listen Up.” He was featured in Le Tigre and Scissor Sisters videos as well. His film credits include roles in Florent, We are the Hartmans, House of Satisfaction, Maria and Bruce (directed by Wallace Shawn) and John Cameron Mitchell’s Shortbus. On TV, Murray has appeared on LOGO, Sundance Channel, TLC, MTV, Channel 4 in the UK, and shot a pilot with Moby and Jonathan Ames for Showtime. He has been the subject of books, documentaries and radio programs. Murray has also been welcomed in the fancy pants halls of academia as a lecturer and performer. He’s thrilled to have an essay included in Dan Savage’s new book “It Gets Better.”

Murray is currently working on an Off-Broadway production and tour, his debut comedy album, Murray Hill Is 100% Polyester, and television projects in the UK. When not sweating under the hotlights, Murray enjoys a round of miniature golf, reruns of The Dean Martin Show, and reading old-school showbiz biographies.
