Kiki and Herb are back with the Christmas show we need in 2023

This holiday season, booze-soaked lounge act extraordinaire Kiki and Herb will deliver us from darkness with their deliciously deranged musical stylings.

The infamous double act, created and performed by Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman, return for a new edition of their now-legendary Christmas concerts. This year’s resurrection brings Kiki & Herb’s whiskey soaked gospel to the masses like never before. So spread the good word: Salvation is upon us. Grab a pew, ye sinners; sup your sacramental wine and sing… O Come Let Us Adore Them.

Whether it’s a sold-out evening at Carnegie Hall, a flop-house in Pittsburgh, or Kiki & Herb: Alive on Broadway (2007 Tony nomination), Bond and Mellman’s booze-soaked banter, pop-culture shmaltz, and claws-out cultural critique has been “scaring the bejesus out of audiences nationwide” (Vanity Fair) for three decades. Join Kiki & Herb on the road as they stumble through holiday favorites and classless-classics alike.

About Kiki & Herb

Kiki & Herb is the creation of Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman. Kiki is a washed-up, boozed-up chanteuse, with a voice that is a mixture of Tom Waits and Ethel Merman with a dash of Judy, whose middle age passed her by some time ago. Herb, her piano-battering, lifelong accompanist provides support both musically and emotionally. As Kiki & Herb, Justin Bond and Kenny Mellman have dazzled audiences around the world for over two decades with their ground-breaking wildly popular cabaret shows. Kiki & Herb have performed and toured with The Scissor Sisters and Rufus Wainwright. The duo received an Obie Award, and earned a Tony Award nomination for Kiki & Herb: Alive on Broadway. Kiki & Herb have released two albums: Do You Hear What We Hear? featuring Deborah Harry, Isaac Mizrahi, Molly Ringwald, and Rufus Wainwright and Kiki and Herb Will Die For You, a live recording of their Carnegie Hall show.

Mx. Justin Vivian Bond (they, them, their) has appeared on stage (Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Londonʼs West End), screen (Shortbus, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Sunset Stories), television (High Maintenance, Difficult People, The Get Down), nightclub stages (most notably, a decades-long residency at Joeʼs Pub at The Public Theater), and in concert halls worldwide (including Carnegie Hall and The Sydney Opera House). In December 2019 Mx. Bond made their Vienna Staatsoper debut as Orlandoʼs child in the world premiere of Olga Neuwirthʼs Orlando. In 2021 they appeared as the Lounge Singer in Boston Lyric Opera’s streaming opera Desert In, and made several year end “Best of” lists with their shows Only an Octave Apart co-created with counter-tenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, Zack Winokur, and Thomas Bartlett, as well as Kiki and Herb Sleigh at BAM with Kenny Mellman.
