Starring Jon O'Connor, Kevin Hunt and Rob Williams
The Flaming Idiots: still up to their days of jugglin', jokin', throwin', swallowin', leapin' and conquerin' Broadway -- but even better. The Flaming Idiots are on ZACH's stage for the sort of theatre circus hilarity that brought them to international acclaim and got them kicked out of Williamson County. Be utterly amazed with an act far more outrageous than you ever thought theatre could be.
