Showcasing comedy, magic, circus, burlesque, film shorts, music, and more, the Super Fun Superfund Variety Show launches its all-new cabaret series at the Film Biz Prop Shop in Gowanus, Brooklyn, Sat Dec 10. Hosted by Ellia Bisker of indie ukulele sensation Sweet Soubrette and Josh Bisker of Cobra Gold, Super Fun presents an incredible array of talent in a one-of-a-kind setting: a 10,000 square foot upcycling center for props, sets, and materials donated by film and TV productions. Audience members will have the chance to win a hand-selected item from the Prop Shop, and each ticket includes a 10% off coupon for a future Film Biz visit.

The Film Biz Prop Shop, located in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, is operated by Film Biz Recycling, a nonprofit organization that creates socially responsible and sustainable solutions from media industry waste. The Prop Shop sells and rents a vast array of furniture, household goods, and one-of-a-kind theatrical props donated by film and TV productions, and is an outstanding resource for artists and the community at large.

The Super Fun Superfund Variety Show applies Film Biz’s mission to “reuse, repurpose, and upcycle” to the Prop Shop itself, transforming the treasure-filled warehouse space into a performance venue for a truly diverse array of artists. The show incubates emerging talent and cultivates seasoned professionals by offering filmmakers, musicians, variety artists, and other performers the opportunity to test and refine new work in front of a live audience. The show’s name refers to the Gowanus’s recent designation as a federal Superfund site, and reflects an irreverent spirit, a strong social consciousness, and the goal of contributing to an environmentally and creatively sustainable local community.
