'Kaye is an indefatigable showman'

'Kaye is a force of nature … and an important voice for all of us'
— Sydney Morning Herald

Loud, politically active, queer, brash. Multi-award winning, Australian comedian, singer and writer Reuben Kaye returns to the Malthouse 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.
