This weekend I'm camping in a secret location with a bunch of nutty geniuses. Two of them are Jon Wee and Owen Morse, a comedy juggling team who work together as The Passing Zone. They're performing Saturday night, September 8, 2018, at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University in St. Joseph MN, not far from Minneapolis-St. Paul.
They've appeared on America's Got Talent, and on various TV shows -- Harry Connick Jr., Howie Mandel, and so on. They're doing a mini-theater tour right now, and on Saturday, Boing Boing readers in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Minnesota region can see them.
Jon says, to Boing Boing readers in the 612 and 507:
Hey, MN, we’re coming your way! Sat night, 9/8, 7:30PM Campus of St. Bens. The Passing Zone Saves the World! Chainsaws, laughter, world-saving… something for everyone!
More info here, and there's great stuff on Facebook.
More fun stuff about these guys.
The Passing Zone was one of ten finalists out of hundreds of acts to perform during the debut season of NBC's America's Got Talent where, despite finishing as "the highest rated comedy act," Wee and Morse "lost one million dollars to an 11-year-old." They also appeared during the 11th Season of NBC's America's Got Talent, where they were eliminated in the semifinals. They have entertained as part of the Royal Variety Performance for England's Prince Charles—sharing the bill with Tony Bennett and the cast of Riverdance, among others—and also have been "guest performers" at the White House.
