PORT TOWNSEND — The Flying Karamazov Brothers are returning to the Palindrome for the first time in 30 years.

The juggling quartet will debut their new show “50 Years of Juggling and Cheap Theatrics” this weekend with shows at 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday and matinees at 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at 1893 S. Jacob Miller Road in Port Townsend.

General admission tickets are $30 each and are on sale at

The Flying Karamazov Brothers — they are not actually brothers and they do not fly — provide laugh-out-loud comedy, cheap theatrics, arcane errata and astonishing juggling feats.

The members of the troupe, Chen Pollina, Tomoki Sage, Paul Magid and Jeremiah Meyer, are better known by their stage names Chenovski, Tomoski, Dmitri and Zukov Karamazov, respectively.

The show includes a gamble where Dmitri bets a standing ovation against a pie in the face that he can juggle any three items provided by audience members for at least 10 counts.

The troupe has issued a challenge to Port Townsend to bring the hardest items to juggle when they attend the show; supplied objects must weigh at least 1 ounce, no more than 10 pounds, must be smaller than a bread box and cannot be alive.

The brothers have performed on television shows that include Seinfeld, Ellen, the Tonight Show, the Today Show and Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.
