Daniel Cainer – Gefilte Fish & Chips

23rd November 2016 - 8:00 pm

Award-winning master songwriter returns to home town of Leeds with more unique stories in song. This is a show for anyone who has ever wrestled with their heritage, their history, their home and their heart… and is partial to bagels. At times heartbreakingly poignant, at others laugh out loud funny.

‘Utterly charming, thoroughly recommended’ Edinburgh Festivals Magazine.

‘Some have music in their soul, some have mirth and some have melancholy. That Daniel Cainer has the lot’ Howard Jacobson

‘With his stories within stories, Cainer reminds me of Buñuel. If Buñuel had been Jewish, born in Leeds and been an admirer of Jake Thackray’ Alan Bennett

‘A must see’ Daily Mirror

‘Heart Rending, delicate and witty’ Daily Express

‘Tremendously entertaining. His voice is powerful and versatile, and his lyrics are like Robin Williams rants with delightful rhythms and rhymes.’ Jewish Currents, New York

‘Fast-paced, incredibly amusing, and even a little bit naughty. Genius… an unsurpassed storyteller’ ThreeWeeks

‘You don’t have to be Jewish or British to get a kick out of Cainer’s routines’ LA Times
