Rob Williams and Casey Martin perform their show, Kamikaze Fireflies, for audiences all over the world at venues such as performing arts centers, corporate events, cruise ships, colleges, busker festivals, and renaissance festivals. The show is a mix of comedy and circus. Juggling, hula hoops, german wheel, whip cracking, and many tricks never seen anywhere else. The Seattle Times said they gave a “near riotous end to the show.” On America’s Got Talent they received a standing ovation and Howard Stern said, “Fantastic. Captivating. You’re funny. I was sucked into this thing. It was wonderful. I can’t wait to see more.”

The Flaming Idiots was the first show Rob created (along with Kevin Hunt and Jon O’Connor). They toured the world for twenty years before retiring the show in 2004. Casey Martin has been working as a professional acrobat and variety performer for over a decade. Casey graduated summa cum laude from Westchester University with a degree in Education. They both call Los Angeles home now, but they started in the great states of Pennsylvania (Casey) and Texas (Rob). It was renaissance festivals that gave them both the opportunity to see live variety entertainment and then the chance to get their foot in the door. As part of The Flaming Idiots Rob went from living in a van and street performing all over America to performing on Broadway (4 separate runs) at The New Victory Theater on 42nd Street in Times Square. Zach Scott Theater in Austin, TX also gave The Flaming Idiots the stage and support they needed to grow their show from a festival act into a theatrical experience. Casey moved to Los Angeles and immediately began getting cast in film, television, commercials, and music videos. She can be seen all over the world breathing fire in a California Tourism commercial starring William Shatner. After a huge success on America’s Got Talent, the Kamikaze Fireflies heard from the world of cruise ships and just recently completed multiple dates on the Crown Princess (and they are scheduled to return to the Princess Cruise family with tours this summer to Alaska). Corporate events fill their winters and theaters and festivals fill their summers, but they still find time to be avid home cooks and to produce comedy sketch videos with their friends from America’s Got Talent, Dustin’s Dojo.
