- Comedian stuns The Project with filthy Jesus joke on live TV
- Queer comedian Reuben Kaye stunned the panel with the joke
Queer comedian Reuben Kaye has left The Project panel stunned after an x-rated joke about Jesus live on air.
On Tuesday night, Kaye spoke on the hate he receives for his beliefs and dressing up in drag, especially from the Christian and Catholic community online before he dished out a brash joke about Jesus.
‘I love Jesus, I love any man who can get nailed for three days straight and come back for more,’ Kaye joked.
His line left the panel speechless, most of all Waleed Aly who looked on in shock.
Yet Sarah Harris laughed with the gay comedian’s joke as the cast were lost for words.

Kaye in his first ever appearance on The Project said this was his appearance to announce himself to Australia as he is set to perform at multiple comedy festivals around Australia before going on to joke about things such as sexuality and racism.
‘I want to poke the bear,’ he said.
‘I’m so thickly spread around this country that I might as well be systemic racism.’
