What the Flying Karamazov Brothers are exactly is subject to debate, though world-class entertainers should be somewhere in the definition.
The Brothers will be performing their latest act, titled "L'Universe" (pronounced Looneyverse), in Memorial Hall tonight at 8 p.m.
The Flying Karamazov Brothers started performing in San Francisco in 1973.
They have since had six successful runs on Broadway, co-starred in the movie "The Jewel of the Nile," and appeared on television shows like "Seinfeld," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Regis and Kathie Lee," to name a few.
"L'Universe" is a combination of juggling, science and comedy in an organized improvisation.
Jennifer Smith, the marketing coordinator for the Carolina Union Activities Board, said that although the performance is structured, much of it will be improvised.
"They are very vague about their performance," Smith said.
"You don't know exactly what they are going to do, which makes it mysterious."
What is known is that the show focuses on explaining the wonders and mysteries of the universe, although the Flying Karamazov Brothers' methods of doing so are not exactly conventional.
