Reviews

‘In the underpopulated arena of male cabaret singers, Mr. Cumming may be the only one with the talent and drive to change its direction’ – The New York Times

‘So hilarious, flirty and gorgeously filthy that it’s hard to decide if you want him as a new best friend or a lover’ – Sydney Morning Herald

‘The androgynous imp is both quiet and uproarious, adorable and sensual, flippant and emotional, otherworldly and inviting… this is precisely why he’s an icon to behold – he is unapologetically himself, and with a talent like that, he has no need to apologise’. – Billboard
