Reuben is brilliantly funny and quick-witted, not to mention an incredibly talented singer and performer. Gird your loins, order that drum of lube, and get ready for some serious entertainment!

A turbo talented guy with smarts and a quick wit. Total showman. And WHAT A VOICE! WHAT A SHOW! Elegant, suitably outrageous, surprising, subversive and seriously funny. Remnants-of-Cheese score is a solid 5 crumbs (and give this man a case of champagne!)

Be prepared to laugh until your cheeks hurt! Reuben is a huge talent and is so quick with jokes and comebacks. A very fun evening!

Miro Magazine (4/5 stars) 1 day ago

Kaye is a royal dark lord of showmanship, a man who you don’t dare to look in the eye and yet can’t stop staring at. Together with his band, The Kaye Holes, this hour-long set flashes by, seemingly thrown together and yet micro-constructed down to every hair flick and wry smile.

Reuben Kaye truly is the Ace in the deck.

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (4/5 stars) 5 days ago

Reuben Kaye looks amazing: toweringly tall, covered in sequins, with cheekbones to die for and a record-breaking amount of mascara. The London-based Aussie is a cabaret creature to the core.Backed by four...

The Herald [paywall] (4/5 stars) 10 days ago

Reuben Kaye needs no introduction. Not because this Aussie force of nature’s reputation precedes him so much as because he is up close and personal with his audience meeting and greeting them on arrival. Horse tail-adorned mic in hand, he then barely pauses for breath throughout a show that overruns...

Culture Fix (4/5 stars) 13 days ago

Australian cabaret star Reuben Kaye makes a welcome return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with two shows, late night variety act The Kaye Hole and a self-titled solo cabaret show. The latter is a hurricane of camp, sweat and sparkles as Kaye mixes audience interaction, powerhouse vocals, and personal anecdote to produce a raucous late night feast.

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 16 days ago

Kaye dazzles, a heady combination of eyelashes and rhinestones, a force to be reckoned with as he greets each of his guests on the way in and on the way out of his show. This is a beautifully personal touch largely lost in the edFest by anyone not requiring to...

Fest (3/5 stars) 18 days ago

As “camp” becomes yet another buzzword, collateral damage in the commodification of queerness by the media and commercial entertainment, it’s reassuring to witness Reuben Kaye’s whole-hearted display of cabaret-inflected “faggotry”. Importantly, nowhere does Kaye attempt to make himself palatable to the cis-heterosexuals in the audience. With its slipshod costume changes, alternative...
