What the Critics Say

"Oy Vey in a Manger" is their naughty Yuletide compendium of bad puns, salacious asides and dirty fantasies.
~ The Washington Post

"One of the more uniquely original (and thoroughly fun and entertaining) acts we have encountered in years... rich four-part harmony... hilarious... this is one act that should not be missed, either in person or on CD."
~ Billboard Magazine

"The hottest ticket in town ... taking the cabaret world by storm ... voices sweet as birdsong."
~ New York Times

"If you haven't made the acquaintance of The Kinsey Sicks, it's high time you did.... Uproarious... brilliant... authentically joyful."
~ Washington Post

"Only one a cappella group has remained steadfastly lewd, crude, and rapturously reviewed.... Legendary for their succulence, sarcasm, and style, the Kinsey Sicks can easily shock and awe unsuspecting audiences.... Rollicking.... [They] never fail to bring down the house."
~ Huffington Post

The songs are marvels... It's a hoot... clever and jubilantly performed"
~ The Washington Post

"'Dragapella,' with its political bite and raunchy, sometimes sick humor, falls on a short list of titles that would appeal to what one could call, in shorthand terms, 'The Daily Show' crowd... On this particular Saturday night, the front-stage tables included a group of retirement-aged women who looked like they got lost on the way to 'Menopause the Musical.' ... But they were laughing as hard as anyone in the room. And really, you'd have to be Pat Robertson waiting for the bus to Bob Jones University not to."
~ Las Vegas Review Journal

"Inventive...riotiously funny...sublime."
~ Variety

"Gut wrenchingly funny...pitch perfect a cappella harmonies."
~ The Advocate

"Outrageous, marvelous, hilarious ... they're golden-throated vocalists who defy categorization."
~ Chicago Tribune

"Hammy, hilarious music with a message... These are four men with big hair and big voices."
~ Miami Herald

"For connoisseurs of gender-bending comedy who find Dame Edna too tame, the Kinsey Sicks up the ante in Dragapella -- quadrupling the outlandish feminine allure while boosting it with considerable vocal skills and a grab bag of outrageous, often naughty, musical numbers... over-the-top silliness...hilarious...lyrics clever enough for Ira Gershwin or E.Y. Harburg."
~ Houston Chronicle

"Wickedly funny ... outrageous ... The Kinseys have earned flat-out critical raves."
~ Detroit Free Press

"As funny as they are harmonious, they have already cemented their national repuation."
~ The Boston Globe

"Beautifully sung, comic and politically savvy. It was a lark with substance and the audience (and I) went wild."
~ Montreal Gazette

"Riotously funny...ferociously creative...a must-see...everyone will enjoy themselves!"
~ Time Out Magazine (New York)

"Lavish! Outrageous! The Kinsey SIcks are solid comics and especially solid singers."
~ New York Daily News

"Tight harmonies the Andrews Sisters would have envied. [V]ery funny ... intelligent ... touching."
~ Boston Herald

"Sublime...biting wit...The Kinsey Sicks present some of the best tight harmonies that I have heard in a long time. They have pitch perfect doo-wop in songs that cross the line of political correctness. They have the voices and harmony of angels, but they are devilishly sinful."
~ Talking Broadway

"The Kinsey Sicks have produced one of the most joyous evenings of sharp comedic and musical material I've seen in decades."
~ Theatermania.com

"The Kinsey Sicks will put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. These four musicians-actors-writers-composers-drag queens are wickedly gay, and man, can they sing! Completely a capella, their material is intelligent and scathingly funny. Their lyrical parodies of well known songs will have you rolling ... geniously hilarious ... excellent original tunes ... brilliant. With their impeccable timing, precise harmonies, and cultural savvy, the Kinseys represent fabulous, satirical queer humor at its finest."
~ In Los Angeles Magazine

"They do an excellent job...supremely talented...couldn't be any funnier."
~ San Francisco Chronicle

"Gloriously, proudly bad taste...gut-busting parodies and raucous shtick...high camp, unafraid, subversive...astonishing."
~ SF Chronicle

"5 stars out of 5"
~ Maryland Theater Guide

"'Oy Vey in a Manger,' a ribald, ridiculous, raunchy, decidedly R-rated romp through the best and worst of Christmas, is lighting up the Washington DC Jewish Community Center's Goldman Theater with laughs and guffaws... [I]n mellifluous voices, they harmonize and belt with the best of 'em. The Kinseys make the Glee club on Fox television with its risque teenage trysts look like a preschool.... A new and subversive holiday tradition."
~ Washington Jewish Weekly

"Unlike other drag groups, The Kinsey Sicks can really sing - and they do, beautifully. They create charming harmonies, and never lip-synch. Unlike others, their material is intelligent, very funny, and also very Jewish."
~ Ha'aretz (Israel)

"A welcome breath of fresh air.... The audience could not stop laughing."
~ Jewish Week (NY)

"Every number has its charm, and the audience delights...so swing your vote their way and stop in!"
~ DC TheatreScene

"With its razor-sharp wit and impressive vocals, the group has become a favorite of local Jewish and gay theater scenes...true ingenuity...they can also sing the house down."
~ JewishBulletin (San Francisco)
