Improv Cabaret (myspace, youtube) has songs like a cabaret and stories like a cabaret, but the entire thing is improvised. Ridiculous, self-indulgent and sometimes funny, Improv Cabaret is solo musical improv and storytelling in the format of a swingy, insane, bizarre cabaret act featuring Mark Baratelli (website)

"It is what comic improvisation should be. Mark Baratelli is a freakin' comic genius! Go see his show!"
-NYTheatre.com, 2007

"Singer/ improviser Mark Baratelli and his accompaniest were like a two-person Baby Wants Candy — the Second City group that improvises an entire stage musical — except his was a cabaret act. If you missed it, you missed one of the festival’s best performances."
-Charleston City Paper writer Patrick Sharbaugh, 2007

"Your voice is amazing. Your improv is amazing."
-San Francisco Improv Festival Producer Shaun Landry, 2008

"I continually get comments on what a tremendous performance you put on"
-Santa Cruz Improv Festival Producer Lee Ann Gray, 2008

"Had the audience captivated from the moment Mark hit the stage"
-Dirty South Improv Festival Producer Zach Ward, 2007

"The songs were good, the singing was very good and the storytelling was fantastic. It's not always what Baratelli says, but the rapid-fire/borderline A.D.D. way he says it, the sideways glance, the dancey pose, the selling it to the back row."
-Orlando Sentinel 2007
