The internationally acclaimed quartet, The Flying Karamazov Brothers, are set to bring their vaudevillian comedy and juggling spectacle show, “4 Play,” as part of The Venetian and The Palazzo’s Italian summer festival, Carnevale (Photo credit: Carol Rosegg).
Performances will take place in the 742-seat Venetian Showroom starting at 9 p.m. on Thursday, July 19 through Saturday, July 21 and Thursday, July 26 through Saturday, July 28.
Expect the unexpected with The Flying Karamazov Brothers’ zany showcase filled with astonishing juggling feats, laugh-out-loud comedy and wild theatrics that have taken them to Broadway, television and the big screen. Highlights of their vast theatre credits include appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Seinfeld,” “Ellen,” “The Tonight Show,” “Good Morning America” and shared stage and screen collaborations with Frank Sinatra, Placido Domingo, The Grateful Dead, The Who, Dolly Parton, Robin Williams, Patrick Dempsey, Danny DeVito, Ken Kesey, Allen Ginsberg, Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers, Joyce Brothers and many more.
“The Flying Karamazov Brothers are a very unique, fun and cool show” said Chris Yancey, executive director of entertainment at The Venetian and The Palazzo. “We’re really excited that they’re able to join us during the Carnevale summer celebration!”
The self-proclaimed eccentric lunatics are faced with a new challenge at each of their shows as guests are invited and encouraged to bring any object less than ten pounds to put these juggling experts to the test.
The Flying Karamazov Brothers began on April 23, 1973 at a renaissance fair in northern California. Their wild and physically demanding antics won the “Award of Excellence” from the International Jugglers’ Association in 2004 and the Obie Award for “Outstanding Achievement in the Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway Theatre” in 1981.
