Hours of Award-Winning hilarity in the one place.

Performed live to a packed and rapt audience at the Sydney Opera House, this mind-expanding theatrical experience is the Umbilicals' first special, and one of their most internationally beloved shows. As Scotland's Herald proclaimed, "It's like watching two freeze framed freaks trapped inside a diabolical VCR of the human soul". "Sublime comedy" said the New York Times. The Sydney Morning Herald thought it was like "Marcel Marceau on really good drugs". The Roadie rocks!

Audiences from Stockholm to Tokyo have laughed like idiots at this celebrated performance. "My faith in comedy was restored" (The Times). "It's insanely inventive" (Time Out London) and "left me with that rarest of conditions these days, a face that ached from laughing so much." (Vancouver Sun). These are just the opinions of critics. Imagine what people who aren't critical think of it. Join the Umbilicals in their brilliant signature show, chock full of internationally tested comedy. You'll see and hear everything on a stage full of nothing.

Welcome to the Umbilical Brothers' third spectacular video. It takes the boys on the adventure of their lives, from the bathroom to the very gates of heaven. This show cemented their international acclaim, winning them a coveted Perrier nomination and critics' choice award at the Edinburgh Fringe. London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Auckland, Helsinki, Berlin: those are the names of some places. And the Umbies have performed this storming show in them.
"I clapped til my hands exploded in a cascade of blood and bone shards." The Herald

Taking comedy into the next dimension, up 3 levels and down a hallway, "Australia's hottest export since Vegemite" (Time Out NY) are back with a rehearsal. Or are they? This renowned show is like nothing you've seen before. Creatively misused multi-media, audience participation, tangents that shouldn't be taken...they'll take you inside their Creative Process, and won't let you out until your brain explodes.
"Wildly imaginative in conception and suitably breathless in execution...comedy gold". Irish Independent
***** "There is no obvious way to improve on this truly, truly extraordinary show." Chortle UK
