Employing a surreal take on vaudevillian humor and combining it with extraordinary juggling skills, the Raspyni Brothers (Dan Holzman and Barry Friedman) offer one of the best corporate entertainment packages around.

The Raspyni Brothers have been victorious at two international juggling Championships; in addition they have appeared many times with Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and have their own niche in the Guinness Book of World Records. In addition to being much sought after for corporate entertainment, they have toured as an opening act with megastars including Robyn Williams, Billy Crystal and Tom Jones.

Whether performing a straightforward comedy show, engaging audiences on the trade show floor, posing as corporate managers or presenting a script specially customized for your audience, the Raspyni Brothers provide energizing, thought-provoking, sidesplitting entertainment which will ensure your guests will always remember your event.

Full Profile

The Raspyni Brothers have taken their twisted brand of vaudevillian humor around the world juggling comedy and skill in a perfectly balanced entertainment package. During their show, everyday objects come to life. Golf clubs balance in impossible configurations. Cabbages collide midair with flying blow darts while blazing torches and razor-sharp garden weasels fly effortlessly overhead. The Raspyni Brothers pack their time on stage with a dynamic mix of character, and charisma that never fails to win over even the most hard-to-please crowd.

Dan Holzman and Barry Friedman are the Raspyni Brothers. Their original blend of variety skills and understated comedy have won them two international juggling championships, multiple appearances on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, and a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

In addition to the tremendous success they enjoy in the field of corporate entertainment, the Raspyni Brothers also tour as an opening act for megastars such as Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, and Tom Jones.

Posing as corporate managers, presenting customized scripts, engaging an audience on the trade show floor, or performing their own headline comedy show, the Raspyni Brothers add excitement and energy to any corporate event.

Other career highlights include a performance for President Reagan at the White House, a Jonathan Winters′ Showtime Special, and an invitation from Judge Lance Ito to perform for the sequestered O.J. Simpson jury.

The Raspyni Brothers are a self-contained act that can:

  • Provide dynamite after-dinner entertainment
  • Write scripts and customize comedy routines that
  • communicate an important message
  • Attract, engage, and inform an audience on the trade show floor
  • Emcee an important function in an unforgettable way
  • Wake up a morning session faster than a Starbucks double mocha
