About Homos and Houmous

Queer, Jewish cabaret collective Homos and Houmous, welcomes all hebrews, shebrews and theybrews, goys and gals. 

Upcoming show -  9 August 2021 at Royal Vauxhall Tavern 

Since 2016 we’ve been schlepping around London with a smorgasbord of drag, comedy, live klezmer, poetry and politics. Hosted by music hall grand dame Chanukah Lewinsky (think Julie Walters on speed), the night was started as an open mic at Housmans Bookshop for LGBTI+ Jews to celebrate these two identities which can so often feel at odds. Judaism has a long-standing tradition of camp and queerness and Homos and Houmous is always a raucous family affair; where Bette Midler’s musical stand-up in the bathhouses of New York meets arguments over Shabbat dinner. This year’s line-ups include international drag legends Nana Schewitz and That Ray with resident DJ TamTam. Expect more theatre, more schmatz and even more houmous!
