I recently had the honor of interviewing Pavel and Zossima of the legendary juggling troupe The Flying Karamazov Brothers. Check out the video below for the out of control interview where we discuss juggling, music theory, character, casting and more...

After the interview I became a fan on Facebook and then I took my daughter to see the show. It was awesome and Bailey still hasn't stopped talking about it.
A Brief History
For those of you who don't know much about the FKB, they were formed in 1973 by Paul Magid and Howard Patterson. They started by performing on the streets and at festivals until in 1980 when they began playing in legitimate theaters around the world. Their show is a collision of juggling, music, comedy, and theater that is always entertaining. The current members are Paul Magid (Dmitri), Mark Ettinger (Alexei), Roderick Kimball (Pavel), and Stephen Bent (Zossima).
Some of you might recognize Stephen as the star of the Ultimate Club Juggling DVD.
If you're interested in learning to juggle clubs, this is the best way to do so. It's easy to see why the Flying Karamazov Brothers adopted him into the family.
For those of you budding New York Jugglers, Rod Kimball gives classes in the area. After watching him juggle I think you should seriously consider it. To learn more about that, click HERE.
