Gamarjobat at the London Palladium
Gamarjobat are back in the UK to star in ITV’s Tonight at the London Palladium on ITV1, 8pm Wednesday 4th May. Gamarjobat will share the bill on one of the UK’s best loved entertainment shows, on one of the world’s most famous stages, with Billy Ocean and Komedia regular Paul Sinha.
Komedia Entertainment, the management and production arm of the award-winning venue business, took on Gamarjobat in the early noughties, managing their UK engagements and promoting their Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe runs together with international tours. Since winning the Brighton Festival Award for Best International Act in 2005 Gamarjobat have risen to worldwide fame. The Japanese silent comedy duo are one of the few acts that can truly claim to be a global sensation, having racked up over 15 million You Tube views, and performed in 43 countries from New York’s Broadway to China.
‘A PHYSICAL COMEDY MASTERCLASS…THIS DOUBLE ACT HAVE MADE VAUDEVILLIAN SILENT COMEDY THEIR OWN’ – Guardian
In the UK Gamarjobat have previously appeared on Blue Peter, The Paul O’Grady Show and Jason Manford’s Comedy Rocks. They starred in the BBC’s BAFTA award-winning The Slammer in 2009 and 2013, and remain the only act ever to have won the show twice. In 2009 they also starred in the Komedia Entertainment/Babycow produced BBC3 show, Ketch! And HIRO-PON Get It On!
‘A RIOTOUS, EUPHORIC EXPLOSION OF JOYOUS PHYSICAL COMEDY. A FAST-PACED, PERFECTLY CHOREOGRAPHED FEAST OF VISUAL GAGS’ – Chortle
Award-winning physical comedy duo, Gamarjobat (pronounced Ga-ma-jo-bat, which actually means ‘hello’ in Georgian), has brought about a revolution in mime. Ketch! (red mohican) and HIRO-PON (yellow mohican) have turned silent comedy into an art form that completely transcends all cultural and language boundaries. Their work is an ingeniously packaged mixture of clever, free-flowing mime and gentle acrobatics all wrapped up with a generous helping of wonderfully tongue in cheek humour. Their shows are truly universal and appeal to every age group.
