From Back Cover:

"Their show is by turns inspired and thrilling"
New City, Chicago

"A brand of buddy comedy that I thought was a lost art"
The AGE, Melbourne, Australia

The laughter comes fast and furious in this show featuring variety stunts, improvisation and a fair amount of bizarre behavior, all underscored by the fact that something new and wonderful could happen at any time.

"Terrific Act"
The Chicago Tribune

"Marcel Marceau meets Jim Carrey, on acid"
The Davis Enterprise

My Comments:

I couldn't decide on which genre to place this DVD in, so I created a new one just for it - "other." Yes, other. How the hell does one categorize this one? Is it comedy? Yes, but it's not a movie and it's not television. It's also not straight stand-up either. These guys don't just tell jokes; they juggle, sing songs, recite poetry, dance, and generally act silly (and, in their Renaissance Faire routines - not featured here - they juggle lit torches, tightrope walk, and eat fire as well).

If you're in the mood for some low-brow humor and general absurdity, this is an excellent choice. If you want a real treat, however, go see them in person at the Renaissance Faire or at one of the shows they do in Walnut Creek every January.
