Reuben Kaye

Reuben Kaye: Success Story

Beautifully filthy, obscenely funny and with the voice of a fallen angel, Kaye is what happens when you tell your children they can be anything. With costumes that would give Liberace a haemorrhage, Reuben Kaye: Success Story is an explosion of sequins, lashes and haute-couture humour.

Described by the British Theatre Guide as “the evil love child of Liza Minelli and Jim Carrey” Kaye sweeps his audience away on a journey from tears to hysteria.

His delivery seamlessly blends lavish storytelling and sensational song, incorporating an impressive repertoire that ranges from Kurt Weill to Kate Bush. Switching between rich cultural critique and delicious filth, Kayes superiority complex makes Donald Trump look demure. You know Mum cannot meet this man, but you love him anyway.

Kaye has graced the stages of the Berlin Opera House, State Opera of Hamburg and Royal Albert Hall, alongside luminaries such as Barry Humphries and Meow Meow. Feted as a “quintessential cabaret performer” (Herald Sun), a blink of his long lashes and a twist of his painted mouth will have you gagging… for more.

“A comedy star… Beautiful, hilarious, knowing, wicked, you can’t take your eyes off him!”

Times, UK

“Singing, dancing, gold brocade cabaret. Kaye rises above the pack in all respects!”
