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. They are beloved by adults, students, students who watch Glee, tourists, theatergoers, theatre-avoiders, pseudo-intellectuals, Abe Vigoda, friendless geeks, hedge fund managers, hedge fund managers who are now Duane Reade assistant managers, kids (but only gifted ones with a solid background in the classics), disgraced religious leaders, Kardashians, and politicians. Pardoned? Incarcerated? They don’t discriminate.

“Whether they’re tossing around tenpins or balls, they do it with such power, skill and

- Daily News

flies in ever more daring patterns, to ever more stunning altitudes, and to ever growing
