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 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. 

With support from Arts Council England, Leeds Inspired, JW3 and Manchester Jewish Museum. Creative Director Dex Chait Grodner, Producer Keziah Berelson

Please bring cash as we’ll be raising funds for Glasgow’s queer, Yiddish café, די ראָזעווע פּאַווע pink peacock
