"Singer/ improviser Mark Baratelli and his accompanist 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 (2007 Charleston Comedy) festival's best performances."
-Charleston City Paper writer Patrick Sharbaugh
"Baratelli has an impressively showy singing voice and a nicely warped imagination"
"Mark is a star in his own right. Every word, every musical phrase...practically seamless."
A fully improvised Cabaret Show
Improv Cabaret (Website, Tickets) is an improvised cabaret show with music and professional piano accompaniment in which Mark Baratelli, an excellent singer and master storyteller, manufactures plotline, monologues and lyrics just a millisecond before they tumble out of his mouth; and he does so without pause, and to hysterical ends. Improv Cabaret has to be seen to be believed, and many people come back to see a second or third show, as you can be assured that no two shows are alike.
