Phénomène international de l’humour, les Umbilical Brothers arrivent pour la première fois en France pour 2 représentations exceptionnelles au Théâtre des Mathurins à Paris.
Davis Collins et Shane Douglas usent de leurs habilités physiques, bruitages et comédie dans un monde comique sans limite.
The Umbilical Brothers are an international comedy phenomenon, fusing amazing vocal and physical abilities with a mix of theatre, slapstick and stand-up inside a world where all their rules are broken.
Named as two of Entertainment Weekly's "100 Most Creative People In Entertainment," David Collins and Shane Dundas have appeared on Letterman, the Tonight Show, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. They performed after James Brown at Woodstock '99, and before the Queen of England. Their unique mix of physical and vocal comedy has taken them to stadiums supporting Robin Williams, and brought comedy audiences into the Sydney Opera House.
The boys have gigged in 37 countries, including a year-long off-Broadway run where they received a New York Drama Desk nomination. In Australia, they were awarded the Helpmann Award (Australia's top theatre awards) for Comedy Performance of the Year. Their headlining Edinburgh Fringe shows grabbed them the Edinburgh Critics’ Choice Award. Younger fans, parents of younger fans and stoners know them from their brilliant TV series The Upside Down Show, which they created with Sesame Workshop, and won them an Emmy and a Logie (Australian Emmy).
And now their live madness has been brought together for one show, specially selected for your amusement and amazement. See them and wonder how anyone can do this for a living.
