Ashton Brothers are mr. Pim Muda, mr. Joost Spijkers and mr. Friso van Vemde. All of Dutch nationality.
While influenced by Monthy Python, the Ashton Brothers are agile, adept and funny enough to fill their shoes.
This quote, received in a five star review of UK's edition of METRO sums it all up, really. The Ashton Brothers are a new generation of performing artists: young and reckless but truly skilled. Their work is inspired by old circus and variety acts, modern and traditional music, comedy and slapstick. Acrobatics, pantomime, cabaret, music, dance and songs all featured in their performances.
Some call it punk rock variety theatre, others simply rate it first class entertainment. The fact is that the Ashton Brothers are able to create an extraordinary atmosphere in every theatre where they perform. May it be in their home base of The Netherlands or abroad in Belgium, Spain, Litvania, United Kingdom, France, Switzerland and Canada. In 2007 the Ashton Brothers accompanied his royal highness the Prince of Orange and princes Maxima of the Netherlands to a visit to Slovenia.
