“As close to a sure thing as can be found onstage, 90 minutes of cleverness and comedy that go by in a flash!” - The New York Times
“Nobody leaves the theater without a big grin!”- Variety
“The Karamazovs deliver visual and verbal one-liners, all while creatively tossing about anything they can get their hands on!” - The Wall Street Journal
“A treat for anyone with a funny bone!” - Time Out Kids
Their looks can kill. Their show can slightly injure.
Expect the unexpected with The Flying Karamazov Brothers, featuring the four self-proclaimed eccentric lunatics spicing things up with a zany showcase filled with laugh-out-loud comedy, wild theatrics, arcane errata, and astonishing juggling feats. Formed at UC Santa Cruz in 1973, The Flying Karamazov Brothers have been seen around the world, on Broadway, on television and on the big screen. They are not however, your father’s wild-haired, flame-throwing, juggling, kilt-and-tutu-wearing performers.
The Chicago Reader says, “The Flying Karamazov Brothers’ show is so much fun that anyone you take to see it will want to go to bed with you.” And, the Wall Street Journal says: “The Karamazovs deliver visual and verbal one-liners, all while creatively tossing about anything they can get their hands on!”
