YUMMY at Brisbane Festival


  • La Boite - Roundhouse Theatre (map)

YUMMY is a powerhouse cabaret of drag, dance, circus, and live music that has become legendary in the underground club cabaret scene. Blending outrageous drag conventions with contemporary choreography, YUMMY is a gender-busting live art performance with a whole lot of subversive and salacious humour.

Born from Melbourne’s Midsumma Festival, YUMMY has headlined large events in Adelaide Fringe, Fringe World, Midsumma, Sydney Mardi Gras, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Due West Festival, Melbourne Music Week, Melbourne Fringe, and more.

The show is directed by James Welsby (who has performed with Taylor Mac in GLORY BOX and BRIEFS) and features performers Karen From Finance, Benjamin Hancock, Valerie Hex, Jandruze, Hannie Helsden, Beni Lola, and Joni in the Moon.

Winner of Best Production and Best Ensemble (Cabaret) at the 2018 Green Room Awards.
