The evil love child of Liza Minnelli and Jim Carrey is back in Brunswick Heads and no one is safe!
After ten years abroad touring Europe and the UK, he’s back and wants you to come out and play! After all, who doesn’t need a bit of filth, a lot of camp, and an opportunity to get downright dirty? It’s exactly what we do best here at the Picture House. So what better tonic for these times than to present… the incredible REUBEN KAYE and his new show, THE BUTCH IS BACK!
Yes, the artist described as “the evil love child of Liza Minnelli and Jim Carrey” is back with a new show, new songs, new looks, backed by his band The Kaye Holes.
Obscenely intelligent, beautifully filthy, and rib-crackingly funny, cabaret superstar Reuben Kaye is what happens when you tell your children they can be anything they want to be. Having tantalised audiences as the special guest host of the international hit show sensation CLUB SWIZZLE — from the team behind the Brunswick Picture House — the full Reuben Kaye experience is a dazzling explosion of big notes, high camp, lashes and teeth.
In a simply delicious mélange of energy, acid wit and casual sensationalism, Reuben Kaye’s own brand of melodramatic showmanship has wowed audiences and critics around the globe. 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.
