ED2012 Cabaret Review: The Jewbadour (Daniel Cainer)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Cabaret Reviews

Having performed ‘The Jewish Chronicles’ at various Fringes past, ‘The Jewbadour’ is Cainer’s new exploration of his Jewish heritage through the medium of witty and cleverly crafted songs. Regaling us with tales of a drug-dealing rabbi, his grandparents’ disgruntlement at Jewish heaven and a fifteen minute ode to his off-the-rails Aunt Naomi, Daniel Cainer offers a twist at every corner on this walk down memory lane. He is a talented musician adept at both piano and banjo, and the various styles of music reflect the tone of each story in this musical ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’. The whole show oozes charm, and you’ll spend a pleasant hour being lost in Cainer’s family history. You might even pick up some Yiddish. Oy vey!

Mood Nightclub, 4-25 August, 4.15pm.
