Jospeh Keckler

Vocal virtuoso, charming provocateur, master prose stylist.

After recent shows at Lincoln Center, New York and Centre Pompidou, Paris, Joseph Keckler makes his UK debut, performing an intimate evening of his work in concert form—haunting art-pop songs and wild arias about daily life that spiral into the sublime and ridiculous. Hailed by New York Times as a "major vocal talent whose range shatters the conventional boundaries... with a trickster's dark humor," he delivers an experience that dances between comedy, commentary, and communion.
Accompanied by soulful pianist and vocalist Matthew Dean Marsh.
You can also catch Joseph in London at Soho Theatre October 7 - 12.

‘Unnerving artistry… subversive… he hardly seems human.’

– Observer

Fierce Says

At the last Fierce Festival performer Erin Markey told us we had to book Joseph – and that’s a recommendation you’d be a fool to turn down! Joseph’s offbeat humour has earned him a cult following in the USA and we’re thrilled to present his debut UK performances at Fierce before he goes on to a run at London’s Soho Theatre.
