About The Trick Brothers

Two cross-country skiers lost in the map and the season of the year, side by side yet in the same track, embark upon the Skiing Odyssey – a journey of blunders with an uncertain course and end. It‛s time to swish your poles around, klister your mustache, warm up with a shot of tea and we‛re ready to hit the corduroy! The Skiing Odyssey draws on the many years of the duo‛s street-theater experience. Their strengths include self-irony, juggling, moderate acrobatics and kind humor. As the Germans say, “Langläufer leben länger” or “cross-country skiers live longer” and laughing is known to have the same effect. Therefore, enjoy the elixir of immortality that this show offers.

“Forget the Chuckle Brothers, think more Sacha Baron Cohen for a family audience. The show is an absolute delight. In the piece, a pair (later a trio) of clownish characters muck around with ski equipment in a brilliant slapstick performance that is reminiscent of Cohen’s Borat at his physically comic best.” – Mark Brown, The Sunday Herald
