The Umbilical Brothers Present - Not Suitable for Children


Media release: Wednesday, March 14: Everyone’s favourite elastic Australian comedy duo, THE UMBILICAL BROTHERS are back with a brand new show.
It contains violence, sexual references, pseudo drug taking and frequent coarse language - it is absolutely NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.
Frequent visitors to New Zealand, The Umbies last performed in Auckland in 2011 with their hit show ‘Heaven by Storm’, Theatreview said;
“These guys are world class – and a fantastic left-turn from the conventional stand up comedy shows. A must see for Umbi-fans and curious first-timers.”
Returning to Auckland this May (15-19) for a strictly limited season at Q Theatre with their lauded show NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN, join David (Collins) and Shane (Dundas) as they portray ‘Dane’ and ‘Shavid’ in a brain-melting journey to the most terrifying vista the human mind has ever encountered: the world of children’s television.

Witness the happy fly dance, purchase the most dangerous contraband, reminisce about beloved TV icons and get extremely moist in a children’s show so wrong that it’s completely unsuitable for children.

Under 15’s won’t be admitted, but if you’re an adult, bring your inner child along. It’s too late for that to be any more effed up than it already is.
“A very cleverly controlled stream of crazed consciousness” The Independent UK
“Unique, masterful and exceptional comedy” ***** The Clothesline
“undeniably ludicrous but absolutely essential” ***** Rip It Up
“a show that takes you back to the comfortable place of childhood and then smashes it in the most gloriously messed up way” Daily Review

The Umbilical Brothers – Not Suitable for Children
Auckland – Q Theatre @ 7pm, Duration 1hr10min
Tuesday, May 15 until Saturday May 19
