My husband enjoyed it but the main brother talked to fast and I found it difficult to understand. Don't expect a theatre, it is on the bottom floor of their home and seating is on plastic chairs and the place holds about 20. It is worth supporting though because of what they stand for.

Interesting show with a really friendly host and a nice evening break from visiting pagodas. We went for a dinner to the restaurant opposite the venue and only stopped by to pick up our tickets. He was really chatty and made us feel really welcomed. It helps to know little bit about the Burma to be able to connect the dots however he uses props to help you understand.

It is not an understatement to say that what these guys have done in the past could have got them killed (as many people who were critical of military governments all over the world have unfortunately found out). That alone should make you want to go and support them; but they are also still raising money for current political prisoners in Myanmar.
The show is very different to something you'd see in other countries. It is varied - including old-fashioned slapstick humour, folk dance and music, and educational signs that help explain the history of Myanmar from their point of view. The guys are seriously friendly and kind and clearly love what they do (which they can only do in English and performing to foreigners).
Definitely worth seeing.

The moustache brothers is a must see in Burma, many people have given it negative reviews perhaps this is because rather naively they were expecting a show like you might see in Europe or the US. However the lead comedian is very engaging and in my opinion it was very funny. While it may be expensive for Burma you are witnessing something which most will not - comedians who have been put in jail purely for telling jokes and are still at risk today it is not long before Burma becomes westernised and then your chance will be gone. I really would urge anyone visiting Mandalay to go along.

I havenot been at the evening show, but stepped in in the late afternoon. The brothers were there and were happy to take photos with us, tell us their stories, show us their house and the stage in the garage where they perform every evening, against everyone ahd the local people who still look suspiciously look at you while you are looking for their house. They really deserve support and help, and they are the nicest people I met in Myanmar!!
