The evil love child of Liza Minnelli and Jim Carrey is back in Brunswick Heads and no one is safe!

And as a little reward for making it through this last year, The Butch wants you to come out and play! After all, who doesn’t need a bit of filth, a lot of camp, and an opportunity to get downright dirty? It’s exactly what we do best here at the Picture House. So what better tonic for these times than to present… the incredible REUBEN KAYE and his new show, THE BUTCH IS BACK!

Yes, the artist described as “the evil love child of Liza Minnelli and Jim Carrey” is back for two VERY SPECIAL shows, and you’ll get a chance to see him up close and personal.

In 2018, we unleashed the amazing award-winning cabaret star Reuben Kaye on Bruns audiences and it’s safe to say that it was a mutual love affair. Returning in 2019 for two big sold-out shows, we’re now excited to announce that dear Reuben, the reigning Lockdown Lady of Leisure, is finally packing his bags and flying back to the Brunswick Picture House for much-needed light relief in these two exclusive, special shows.

Obscenely intelligent, beautifully filthy, and rib-crackingly funny, cabaret superstar Reuben Kaye is what happens when you tell your children they can be anything they want to be. Having tantalised audiences as the special guest host of the international hit show sensation CLUB SWIZZLE — from the team behind the Brunswick Picture House — the full Reuben Kaye experience is a dazzling explosion of big notes, high camp, lashes and teeth.

In a simply delicious mélange of energy, acid wit and casual sensationalism, Reuben Kaye’s own brand of melodramatic showmanship has wowed audiences and critics around the globe. Kaye’s delivery is flawless as he seamlessly blends lavish storytelling into gilded song, incorporating an impressive repertoire that ranges from Kurt Weill to Kate Bush, regularly punctuating his monologue with rich cultural critique.
