During the summer period, venues such as the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) often turn to family-oriented content, which is understandable given it is a time when school children are on holidays and it is a time where parents are always after something new to keep their children entertained. But what about groups of adults who are after something a little raunchier? Perhaps some date night fun where the censors are lifted somewhat? Every summer, there tends to be some hidden gems in QPAC’s line-up – and in 2022 – that could be The Kaye Hole.
After entertaining audiences across Australia at a wide variety of festivals including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Fringe World Perth, Adelaide Fringe Festival and event Melt Festival in Brisbane this year – Ruben Kaye is returning to Brisbane for a season of the late-night adults-only cabaret variety show. QPAC appear to be aiming for this to be a hit, as they are putting on more than a month of performances, starting on 6 January 2022 and running until 12 February 2022, in the Cremorne Theatre.
Below is what QPAC has shared about the program:
With Reuben’s stunning vocals backed by a live band and supporting performances from a line-up of some of Brisbane’s best live acts, The Kaye Hole promises a night like no other.
Reuben will host each performance delivering at speed a rich, cultural critique layered with word-play, double AND single entendre. This isn’t just cabaret – Reuben Kaye ‘is what happens when you tell your children they can be anything.’
Reuben has toured the world picking up Best Cabaret Awards at Fringe World Perth and Adelaide Fringe Festival 2021, was nominated for the most outstanding show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival this year and enjoyed standing ovations and sold out shows at Brisbane Powerhouse, The Tivoli Brisbane and North Australian Festival of Arts Townsville.
Tickets to attend a performance of The Kaye Hole are now on-sale, and priced between $64.00 AUD and $74.00 AUD (depending on whether you want a table or balcony seat), can be booked by clicking HERE or calling QTIX on 136 246.
