About the show: "Expect the unexpected with THE Flying Karamazov Brothers IN 4 PLAY. The self-proclaimed eccentric “lunatics” spice things up with a zany showcase filled with the astonishing juggling feats, laugh-out-loud comedy, and wild theatrics that have taken them to Broadway, television, and the big screen."
"Known for consistently testing the laws of physics, The Flying Karamazov Brothers often invites members of the audience to contribute items for juggling. The group’s die-hard fans have been known to come prepared with odd items, including a baby carrier, cold cuts, pepperoni pizzas, and huge blocks of ice. Adept with a wide range of conventional instruments, The Flying Karamazov Brothers amps up the excitement by making its own music, using clubs that are adapted as percussion strikers to allow the troupe to play drums and marimba phones without breaking juggling patterns."
The Flying Karamazov Brothers’ wild and physically demanding antics won the ensemble a 1981 Obie Award for “Outstanding Achievement in the Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway Theatre” and a 2004 “Award of Excellence” from the International Jugglers’ Association. The group has appeared on the television sitcoms Seinfeld and Ellen and in the film The Jewel of the Nile.
