The Monsters of Schlock

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 Rio Theatre on Saturday, October 14. Comedy  so funny… It hurts!

The comic madmen and carnie duo known around the world as the brothers of bodily abuse, The Great Orbax & Sweet Pepper Klopek, combine amazing feats and mind-blowing stunts with cheeky, off-the-cuff slapstick for a show that can only be described as a, “two man demolition derby.” With sold out shows across the world, 27 Guinness World Records and 20 years of touring under their belts Orbax and Pepper are back in Vancouver, bringing an exciting, fun-fueled, comedy thrill show. It’s a real life cartoon with a positive mental health message and stunts you will remember for the rest of your life!

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 traveling carnivals of yore.

“Hilarious, hilarious, hilarious!” (Martin Short)
