The Kamikaze Fireflies Comedic Show

The Kamikaze Fireflies will perform Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Kent State University at Tuscarawas Performing Arts Center. Designed for the whole family, the Kamikaze Fireflies skillfully combine juggling, hula hoops and the German wheel for a comedic show with a circus feel.

Tickets for this family show range in price from $17 to $22 and can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office, online at www.kent.edu/tusc/pac or by calling 330-308-6400. The box office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Free parking is available for all shows.

The Kamikaze Fireflies is a two person, comedy vaudeville show that delivers an amazing and memorable performance.  It’s funny meets fearless when Rob Williams and Casey Martin combine their years of studying unusual physical theater to create a thrill packed, laugh a minute show. With four Guinness World Records and a standing ovation on this last year’s America’s Got Talent; this is an act that people far and wide are celebrating. 

Rob Williams was one of the founding members of The Flaming Idiots and after moving on from that show he has studied long form improv with the Upright Citizens Brigade and worked as an actor and comic across the country with appearances in the Santaland Diaries at Zach Scott in Austin, Texas and as the head writer for a comedy talk show hosted by the one of a kind Sandra Bernhard.

Casey Martin was able to fly all over America working as an acrobat while completing her studies in elementary education at Westchester University. After graduating summa cum laude she decided to use her teacher skills, as well as her circus skills to create a show that uplifts the young and the young at heart. You can see her breathing fire in a current California Tourism commercial or whistling along with Michael Franti in one of his music videos.
