Loud, politically-active, queer, brash. Multi-award winning Australian comedian, singer, and writer Reuben Kaye returns to Brisbane Comedy Festival with his brand new show, APOCALIPSTIK. Part eulogy, part elegy, part Eastern Bloc Dog Day Afternoon. This scandalous story of Reuben’s scoundrel Uncle springboards into a cabaret that crosses continents, generations, and the political spectrum of the 20th century. Musical Direction & Arrangements by Shanon D. Whitelock.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Fast, on the edge and brutally funny, multi-award winning, Australian comedian, singer and writer Reuben Kaye is loud, politically active, queer, brash and the winner of Best In Breed at Crufts 2022. ( He thought he was entering a different type of competition). After racking up millions of views across Tiktok, Youtube & Instagram plus appearances on Spicks and Specks, The Melbourne International Comedy Fest Galas (ABC), Celebrity Letters & Numbers (SBS) and in the UK, Channel 4 & BBC’s You’re Fired, Kaye is now the danger man to watch on the scene.
