The Butch Is Back - Reuben KayeCabaret

Multi-award winning, Australian comedian, singer and self-proclaimed part-time hood ornament Reuben Kaye returns in this encore season of his new show The Butch is Back. With acid wit and casual sensationalism, Kaye is fast, on the edge and brutally funny.

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.

As seen on BBC's The Apprentice: You're Fired with Tom Allen, Channel 4's Kids React to Drag, and Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala for Oxfam on ABCTV.

Reuben Kaye picked up multiple awards for the FringeWorld season of this show in January and February 2021, and now returns to The Rechabite with a bigger band, to see out the year of lockdown touring, and ring in the New Year in Perth.
