Skirball Center for the Performing Arts - New York University

“Extremely funny, very orig­i­nal, and highly-skilled musi­cians. Their mix of clas­si­cal music and com­edy is absolutely unique.” John Malkovich (Actor)

If Trey Parker and Matt Stone played the violin and piano, if Penn and Teller performed music instead of magic, and if Seth Macfarlane had a twin, they would be the brilliantly outrageous Igudesman & Joo. Violinist Aleksey Igudesman and pianist Hyung-Ki Joo are the inventive comic duo whose hilarious mix of music, pop culture and pure zaniness has won them fans of all ages and cultures worldwide. As evidence, their YouTube sketches have attracted close to 40 million viewers.

The New York Times said of their artistry, "Their blend of classical music and comedy, laced with pop culture references and a wholly novel take on the word slapstick, is fueled by genuine, dazzling virtuosity."
