Dusty Limits, also known as Dorian Black, is a singer, comic, actor, writer and director and one of the most celebrated figures on the ‘new cabaret’ scene. He performs everything from Cole Porter to Portishead, Tom Lehrer to Tom Waits, along with his own compelling original songs written with long-time collaborator Michael Roulston, which explore themes of mortality, addiction and the futility of love. Usually for laughs. Based in London, he has performed at cabarets and clubs around the world, in New York, Berlin and Dublin, all over the UK and Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
He is also a hugely experienced compère, winning the London Cabaret Award for ‘Best Host/Compère’ in 2012, 2013 and 2015 (the only person ever to win three London Cabaret Awards in a single category), and he has taught his workshop, ‘The Art of the Compère’ in the UK, Eire and New Zealand.
