Julius Novick, Village Voice

“Any competent juggler can defy gravity. Only the Karamazovs can make light of it.”
Tim Appelo, Seattle Times

“They are as nimble of wit as they are deft of hand and your mouth will open wide in laughter no less than in awe. They handle an audience as cleverly as the cleavers, clubs, knives and other imaginable and unimaginable objects they juggle, and they are as playful and personable as puppy dogs with a hypertropic intelligence. This wholesome show should tickle equally the child with and the child within you.”
John Simon, New York magazine

Judith Crist

“What can one say? There is "Oedipus at Colonus" and "King Lear," and then there is the mighty ouvre of The Flying Karamazov Brothers, who share with Sophocles and Shakespeare the distinction of not being able to fly, not being named Karamazov, and not being brothers.”
Brenden Gill, The New Yorker

“Their self-imposed recipe of good juggling and bad jokes is irresistible to Karamazov addicts such as myself. I think they have a touch of genius to them.... A marvelous mix of the Marx Brothers, Monty Python and 'Hellzapoppin!... A unique entertainment! You have to be there and you should be there as soon as possible. Catch it!”
Clive Barnes, New York Post1
