Since 2016 Homos and Houmous has 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 began 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 show is produced with the generous support of Asylum Arts, Arts Council England and Sadeh Farm

ONLINE SHOW 8.30-10.30pm GMT

PARTY with DJ TAMTAM 10.30-12.
