About Ben Palumbo

  • BIO
    You may have seen him as acrobatic flash across the screen in the hit film Moulin Rouge, or one of the first ariel performers to cross the stadium in the Sydney Olympics opening ceremony.
    Since then Ben Noir, a multitalented singer, actor, acrobat and cabaret performer with a burlesque bent, has performed all over the world.
    A foray into all things French began with request to sing a French song for his grandfather on Bastille day 14th July 2002. Two years living in French speaking Switzerland, resulted in fluency and an invitation to perform at the Paris Burlesque festival in 2011.
    Ben Noir has a unique voice, an extraordinary vocal range and a performance style that crosses many genres. He possesses a resonant and powerful voice - with a falsetto range that would match most daring sopranos! Whether performing jazz standards with the band, singing opera (which he can also do while doing a handstand!), French cabaret or anything in between, the audience is always assured of being a part of a unique experience that resonates, amuses and entertains.

    He recently won Best Male Performer for Short and Sweet Cabaret Sydney 2016 with his piano accordion act, and wowed audiences this year in Brisbane (Glitterfest) and Canada where he performed in the prestigious Montreal Burlesque Festival in October 2016.

    "A totally unique, stylistic and sensual show… Highly recommended" Paul Capsis
    (Paris adventure – The Basement 2012)
    "I loved Ben’s energy during the festival...
    Can't wait to see … his own solo project" Kate Ceberano (Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2014)
    “ Ben, an entertaining singer… he should take the stage whenever she is off…”(Memoirs of a showgirl with Shay Stafford at Slide Cabaret Lounge) John Shand SMH
