    They are not actually brothers (or named Karamazov for that matter).
    They described themselves as 'a continuing experiment' in comedy, music and juggling.
    After 9/11, they changed the name of their 'Terror Trick' to the 'Danger Trick.'
    They received an Obie for achievement in Off-Broadway theater (1981).
    They performed a unique adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Comedy of Errors' for PBS' 'Live from Lincoln Center' (1987).
    Stephen 'Zossima' Brent owes his existence to the troupe: his parents' first date was at a Flying Karamazov Brothers performance.
    They are known for 'the Gamble' in which one of them will juggle any three items provided by the audience*.
    *Subject to five limitations: (1) Items must weigh more than one ounce; (2) Items must weigh less than 10 pounds; (3) Items must be smaller than a breadbox; (4) No living animals allowed; (5) No items capable of turning the juggler into a non-living animal are allowed.
