Reuben Kaye

Cabaret Compere with shows in London and Australia

Steve Bennett, The Chortle

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; multi-award winning Cabaret artist and self proclaimed part-time hood ornament 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 own brand of melodramatic showmanship has wowed audiences and critics around the globe.  Performing in some of the biggest theatres in Europe, this glamorous, anarchic creation has been feted as 

"The quintessential cabaret performer"

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.

Reuben has enjoyed residencies at London's historic Savoy Hotel, The Rosewood Hotel and at London's West End home of cabaret, the famous Cafe de Paris as their regular host and performer, while still travelling to perform in Berlin's Wintergarten, Tipi Am Kanzleramt, Ohh La La Cherie in Zurich, Cabaret Lune Noir in Bern, Deutsche Oper BerlinHamburg State Opera, the Royal Albert Hall in London, The Savoy Theatre in Helsinki, and the famous Södra Theatre in Stockholm, to name a few.
