The Monsters of Schlock
Date(s): October 16th, 2023
Canadian entertainers The Monsters of Schlock have sold out shows internationally as ‘The World’s Most Extreme Two Man Circus Sideshow Comedy Magic Extravaganza,’ and they are bringing their totally unique brand of quirky comedy to the Raven’s Cry Theatre on Monday, October 16. Comedy so funny… It hurts!
Watch them as they smack, staple, and burn each other with blowtorches… And one-liners! Comedy takes the front seat as these two comedians lampoon sideshow, magic, and the circus arts while performing some of the most amazing physical stunts ever seen. It’s a slapstick stunt show hearkening back to the early days of vaudeville, with as much influence from “The Three Stooges” as from the travelling carnivals of yore.
“Hilarious, hilarious, hilarious!” (Martin Short)
“Painfully funny, painfully smart… and just plain painful! I laughed so hard, my face hurt.” (Absolute Underground Magazine)
“Thoroughly entertaining onstage mayhem.” (Fest Magazine, Edinburgh)
“Smart suits, smart guys, smart asses.” (Retro Magazine)
