Reuben Kaye

12 - 14 Jul 2019

"The evil love child of Liza Minnelli and Jim Carrey"

British Theatre Guide


Imagine if Joan Collins, Tim Curry and Meow Meow all dropped a stack of narcotics and had an orgy… now roll it in jewels and bathtub gin and you’re halfway there!


In an explosion of energy, high camp, big notes and filthy humour Reuben Kaye dominates the stage and devours his audience. With an acid wit and casual sensationalism that is simply delicious, Kaye is a dazzling phantasm of anachronistic showbiz – an explosion of sequins, lashes and teeth.


Kaye’s delivery is flawless as he seamlessly blends lavish storytelling into gilded song, incorporating an impressive repertoire that ranges from Kurt Weill to Kate Bush, regularly punctuating his monologue with rich cultural critique.
