‘The Skinny’ Sends You Into the Weekend With All the News That’s Fit to Mock

When he’s not the stage manager at the Jekyll and Hyde Club theme restaurant, Peter DeGiglio is the host of a theatrical talk show, “The Skinny,” in which he riffs on the week’s local and national news and gabs with fellow actors, writers, and comedians. Think of him as Jon Stewart, but not on television, and with more obscure guests (past personalities have included comedian Rusty Ward and political commentator Sally Kohn). When The Local heard that Mr. DeGiglio was bringing his act (previously at The Tank) to the Kraine Theater on East 4th Street, we asked him to ply his skills on some recent East Village stories. Watch as he tackles the Tompkins Square rats, Ryan Gosling, Dov Charney’s restaurant, and more. Is this man ready for prime time? You tell us.

We’ll see you Tuesday, and have a lovely Labor Day weekend.

“The Skinny” at The Kraine Theater (85 East Fourth Street between the Bowery and Second Avenue) on the first Wednesday of every month, beginning Sept. 7. Tickets $10. Visit www.horsetrade.info or call 212-868-4444.
