Have you ever seen someone perform ballet while juggling chain saws or ride Segways while juggling plastic garbage bags full of air?
Well, get ready as Lincoln-Way High School District 210 will bring the Passing Zone to Lincoln-Way West High School in New Lenox on Nov. 2.
“Known for its comedic antics and exceptional juggling, the Passing Zone is sure to delight, mesmerize and entertain audiences of all ages as it presents its hilarious, high-energy show ‘Gravity Attacks’ in conjunction with District 210’s popular Spotlight Series,” officials said.
One can see what jugglers Jon Wee and Owen Morse have in store by visiting a clip of past shows online at passingzone.com.
“Once you see these two Guinness World Record holders whip chain saws, knives and clubs, you won’t want to miss out on the fun,” officials said.
The New York Times has described the show as “controlled mayhem.”
The Los Angeles Times has called the Passing Zone “classy, edgy, jaw-dropping and hilarious … a steady stream of genuinely comic banter.”
“Rivaling such greats as Martin and Lewis or Abbott & Costello” is what the Mustang Daily writes about an experience with the comedy duo.
“Perhaps you have already caught snippets of the talented duo’s antics on the ‘Today’ show, ‘The Tonight Show’ or ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ” officials said.
“They have been popular guests on those television shows in recent years.”
The two-hour Passing Zone show will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Lincoln-Way West High School Performing Arts Center, 21701 S. Gougar Road, New Lenox.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $15 for youth.
