The Flying Karamazov Brothers bring their unique blend of juggling, comedy, theater and music to The Orleans Showroom for two fun filled performances, March 27 and 28, 2010.
The Flying Karazamov Brothers
The Flying Karamazov Brothers started at a Renaissance Fair in Northern California in 1973 by Howard Patterson and Paul Magid. The entertainers have established themselves as all-encompassing comedians, entertainers, theater artistes, musicians and jugglers.
In 1981, their first show presented in a legitimate theater was Juggling & Cheap Theatrics performed at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre and at the Arena Stage in Washington D.C. This production became the beginning of what would launch the troupe from street performers to renowned artists who have performed on some of the most famous stages in the world—including multiple theaters on London’s West End and Broadway, at the Carré in Amsterdam and the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.
The Flying Karamazov Brothers have appeared on several popular television programs including Seinfeld, Ellen, The Tonight Show, The Today Show and Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, and have appeared on the silver screen in The Jewel of the Nile with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. Collaborations with other noted musicians, actors and entertainers, include Frank Sinatra, Placido Domingo, The Grateful Dead, The Who, Dolly Parton, Robin Williams, Kenny Rogers and The Smothers Brothers.
In addition to developing, producing and performing several original productions such as Juggle and Hyde, Life: A Guide for the Perplexed and Flings and Eros, the veteran performers have taken on works of The Bard with multiple incarnations of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, which also was filmed for Great Performances on PBS. They have also performed with many established orchestras including Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, The Canadian National Symphony and the San Francisco Symphony.
