'A comedy star!' (Times). Fast, on the edge and brutally funny. Australia's favourite comedian Reuben Kaye is back to tear the world apart and put it back together. 'An icon!' ***** (EdFestMag.com). 'Hilarious' ***** (Advertiser, Adelaide). Backed by a full band, this show is guaranteed to have you on your feet screaming or bent over in hysterics. Kaye is utterly unforgettable and not to be missed! 'Colossally Fabulous!' (Scotsman). 'The stand out performance of the Fringe!' ***** (ThisIsRadelaide.com.au). 'Obscenely intelligent, beautifully filthy and rib-crackingly funny' ***** (AussieTheatre.com.au).

Here is a list of those we could find along with any reviews we have previously written.

Reuben Kaye interview

They call me the Ferrari of Drag mainly because I'm shiny, expensive and on a good day I can fit four Italians inside me.
