April 23, 2016
You want your date to have fun. Or- you want to laugh along with your kids. Or- you’re so old that you just want one more amazing experience before they put you on an all jello diet. This is the show for you! The Kamikaze Fireflies are a Los Angeles-based two person vaudeville that the Seattle Times said, “…provides a near riotous end to the show.” Seen on America’s Got Talent, they will spin giant metal cubes, do contortionist backbends, and whip crack the crowd into a frenzy!
