The Passing Zone has been wowing audiences for decades. They have been finalists on "America's Got Talent," performed at the White House and hold four Guinness World Records. Their newest show, The Passing Zone Saves the World, flies into Houston this fall, and Jon and Owen put the world's troubles on their shoulders as they attempt to save us all! From what? How do they do it? By temporarily suspending gravity. By turning chainsaws into dance partners rather that tools for wiping out rain forests. The Passing Zone saves the world from boredom and the mundance by putting themselves at risk for your amusement! So whether your favorite part will be the stun gun, the chainsaws, the superhero capes or the ping pong the date because there's nothing more important than saving the world!
