About Homos and Houmous

Since 2016 queer Jewish performance collective Homos and Houmous (H&H) has been schlepping around London with a smorgasbord of drag, comedy, live klezmer, poetry and politics. It’s hosted by music hall grand dame Chanukah Lewinsky (think Julie Walters on speed) and drag punk pin-up That Ray (Peaches meets disney villain). Our vibe is Shabbat dinner argument meets Bette Midler doing musical stand-up in a New York bathhouse. 


We are a part of the emerging renaissance of Jewish leftist art making and Yiddish revivalism. Check out the rad projects of Pink Peacock Cafe, Vashti Media, Jewdas, Na'amod, and Yiddish Open Mic Cafe. 


Night Czar Amy Lame has said of us: ‘This is what makes London, London, and we must not lose it.’ (BBC Sounds). 


We are 2021/2 residents at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
