About the Event
Queer, Jewish cabaret collective Homos and Houmous welcomes all hebrews, shebrews and theybrews, goys and gals (all welcome). Closet nothing. Covet everything.
With everything just a bit up in the air, Chanukah Lewinsky is learning to use The Zoom and she hopes you’ll all be terribly supportive.
This Chanukah, artists from Manchester, Sheffield, London, Leeds and Glasgow will be converging for a night of virtual celebrations. Bring enough latkes (and gin) to share. Glad-rags encouraged.

Expect more theatre, more schmatz and even more houmous. Your nan will love us (if she can work the zoom)!!
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.
