International comedy phenomenon The Umbilical Brothers will smash together the spectacle of cinema and the energy of live performance in a mind-blowing new show The Distraction at Parktheater!

Combining unbelievable human performance and special effects wizardry, The Distraction will see the world’s favourite Australian comedy duo, made up of David Collins and Shane Dundas, perform simultaneously on stage and on the big screen. 

Dundas, the bald member of The Umbilical Brothers said, “David and I have always imagined movie-like visuals when creating and performing. This time you get to see what we’re imagining, right there onscreen in real time. We’ll be wrestling with live special effects. It’s going to be pretty freaky.”

Renowned for their fast-paced mix of movement, vocal sound effects and verbal interplay to cleverly twist theatrical rules and everyday situations into comedy triumph, The Umbilical Brothers’ appeal crosses generations. Their global gigs have taken them to 40 countries, including a year-long Off-Broadway run of Thwack for which they received rave reviews from The New York Times and a Drama Desk Award nomination.
