“The Umbilical Brothers inhabit a cartoon world where the normal rules just don't apply...It is all splendidly childish at the same time as being fiendishly clever.” – (5 Star Review) Scotland on Sunday

The Umbilical Brothers are an international comedy phenomenon fusing amazing vocal and physical abilities with a mix of theatre, slapstick and stand-up inside a world where all their rules are broken.
Named as two of Entertainment Weekly's "100 Most Creative People In Entertainment," David Collins and Shane Dundas have appeared on Letterman and Leno, after James Brown at Woodstock '99, and before the Queen of England. Their unique mix of physical and vocal comedy has taken them to stadiums supporting Robin Williams and brought comedy audiences into the Sydney Opera House.
The boys have performed in 37 countries, including a year-long off-Broadway run of their debut theatre show Thwak!, which garnered them a New York Drama Desk nomination. In Australia, they've received the Helpmann Award (Australia's Tony) for Comedy Performance of the Year. Their headlining Edinburgh Fringe shows grabbed them the Edinburgh Critics’ Choice Award for Comedy and a Perrier nomination. Younger fans, parents of younger fans and stoners may know them from their brilliant TV series The Upside Down Show, which they created with Sesame Workshop and won them a daytime Emmy and a Logie (Australian Emmy).
