"Margarita Pracatan" has been seducing audiences for years with her strange, robotic karaoke, sassy dance moves and bug eyes. Her music is fierce and fun, at times alarming, but it's how she channels her manic joy, and it's a good thing; Margarita is sure to brighten anyone's day. Tune in every Saturday at 9:30 PM on MNN2! Next air dates: 6/25 and 7/2.
"That's Kentertainment!" is the kind of miracle that could only exist on MNN - a high-profile Broadway interview show, with fans like Stephen Sondheim and Liza Minnelli, hosted by the delightfully insane Ken Kleiber, a living cartoon character, who steals the show with his hilariously over-the-top song and dance numbers, Jesus T-shirts, wacky sound effects and alcoholism. It is the meeting of these extremes (Broadway royalty and public access) that is so compelling, and Ken makes it look easy, clearly enjoying his strange place in media. Let him Kentertain you: every late Thursday/early Friday at midnight on MNN1! Next air dates: 6/24 and 7/1.

"The Arthur Thompson Show" is an amusing assault of hokey legends and false folklore, delivered by none other than Arthur Thompson! This is a new kind of theater - a one-man show from one man's basement. Thompson is like the Mad Hatter, your only guide in this chaotic world, but completely unreliable, and that's the fun of it! Tune in every Thursday at 4:30 PM on MNN2! Next air dates: 6/16 and 6/23.

Manhattan Neighborhood Network’s El Barrio-East Harlem Firehouse project has been honored as the City's top Community project.
The Greater New York Construction User Council annually honors the city's top projects as well as one outstanding individual who has demonstrated leadership in the industry. This year, MNN's newly renovated Firehouse community media center has been honored as the top Community project.
The Firehouse is slated to open next year as a state-of-the-art satellite facility. It will house three studios, editing and training facilities and a Youth Media Center. For more information, see: http://firehouse.mnn.org/
"Media Funhouse," airing on MNN for 20 or so years, is the brainchild of Ed Grant, who spends much of the half-hour screening and salivating over '60s art films and French New Wave cinema. Ed's enthusiasm is contagious (his delivery is funny and bombastic) and his knowledge is great (he has a penchant for the trashy). In 2009, The Village Voice hailed "Media" as the Best Public-Access Show. Come see why: every late Saturday/early Sunday at 1 AM on MNN3! Next air dates: 6/5 and 6/12.
