Joe Black: A Decade of Decadent Dirge


Joe Black celebrates 10 years of his own peculiar brand of Weimar inspired cabaret, wonky glamour and musical comedy mishaps by returning to the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth on July 9th.

First entering the Wedgewood Rooms battle of the bands in the balmy summer of 2007 only to be told he would be ‘skinned, north of Guildford’ by one of the judges, he’s even gone on to perform as far north as Aberdeen! ...Skin still well and truly intact.


Since 2007 Joe Black has gone on to complete numerous tours of the USA and Europe, has headlined arts and music festivals all over the world, held a week long run in Melbourne Australia, and had the pleasure of supporting, touring and collaborating with some of his favourite artists.


Returning to one of the very first stages that opened his opportunity, the Wedgewood Rooms continues to support and give a fantastic platform to local and touring artists.


The evening promises to be a celebration of cabaret song, musical mischief and vaudevillian villainy. Accompanied in part by the perpetually highly strung Friedrich Hollandaise, on piano.


Gin drinking cabaret darling, musical comedy misfit, drag clown and acid tongued ringmaster.

A villainous maestro of the cabaret genre, Joe Black blurs the line between utterly sinister and completely delightful.

Irreverent, comical and devilishly charming. 


Dubbed by Vanity Fair Italia as "Not to be missed".

"Charismatic and downright filthy" by Broadway Baby…

"More seamless than a Venusian onesie" by the Belfast Telegraph...

"Indecent hilarity" by Time Out Melbourne…

and "Nothing can detract from his blood curdling brilliance" by the Reading Chronicle…


Joe Black is a constantly evolving cabaret chameleon, blurring the lines of decency within entertainment and continues to drive music and performance into strange new realms.

Come down to the cabaret… here it is right!
