The Umbilical Brothers go Kiwi


Aussie act the Umbilical Brothers come to Queenstown this month with their signature show ‘Don’t Explain’.

The comedic skills of Dave and Shane – the two Aussie blokes who make up the team – have delighted audiences world wide and left people from New York to Hawaii to Tokyo shaking with glee.

Fighting over a single microphone, the performers pull out all the stops with cartoon arms races, hilarious German impersonations, children’s entertainment gone amok, kung fu flies and tap dancing cowboys.

The show - in its Broadway incarnation titled ‘Thwak’ - ran for a year in New York and was nominated for a Drama Desk award for most unique theatrical entertainment.

It’s appeal crosses generations, keeping children enthralled and chuckling with physical comedy, while adults get a kick from the more complex material.

The Umbilical Brothers flip out at Queenstown’s Memorial Hall on Friday, September 19.
