"...daffy & sweetly outlandish..." - Chicago Tribune
Plucky Rosenthal is a Chicago-based vintage variety act, offering a vaudeville-tinged comedy act inspired by bygone eras. Drawing from an eclectic mix of styles, she combines silent films, ukulele classics, a powerful singing voice, and strong comedic chops in a memorable and interactive act.
She can be seen regularly at such vintage-inspired watering holes as the Green Mill, the Drifter, and the California Clipper.
