Hey Reddit, we are Blue Man Group. Ask us anything!


EDIT: The Blue Men have left the building. Reddit, thank you for spending time with us—we'll be back...


And <3<3<3 from our staff, we had a blast.


Proof: What's up, Tuesday?!


Who are the Blue Men? How are their instruments made? Who writes the music? What does it take to become a Blue Man? What is the best tasting color of paint? Boxers? Briefs? Commando!


The Blue Men will answer these questions and more, but in case their responses prompt more questions…we’ve brought along a team to help:


u/BMG-Phil = Phil Stanton (Co-founder, one of the original Blue Men)

u/BMG-Tascha = Tascha Van Auken (Blue Man casting and training)

u/BMG-David = David Bray (Blue Man performer and director)

u/BMG-Jeff = Jeff Turlik (Head of music, composer, and musician)

u/BMG-Bill = Bill Swartz (Creates instruments, designs sets, and can build anything)




u/BMG-Blue-Men = Three Blue Men (Three Blue Men)




Blue Man Group performances are an explosive collision of music, comedy and a whole LOT of color. To date, our award-winning show has rocked the minds and unleashed the spirits of over 35 million people worldwide. Blue Man Group's euphoric celebration appeals to all ages and cultures, so you might even want to bring your parents to the party. (Parent not required for entry)

So I've been dying to know for just about forever, how the hell are your eyes so expressive when performing?

It's almost like watching 6 performers on stage: three bodies and three pairs of eyes.

when you don't feed them, their eyes get kinda desperate

I've never seen a BMG show but my dad did in Boston some years ago and was thoroughly impressed. He gave me your CD, I love it. How often do the PVC instruments break? I imagine the really long swoopy whippy poles might break every once in a while.

Who -does- make them?

How long does it take a new Blue Man to get trained in on the different instruments and songs?

Has there/will there ever be a Blue Woman?

Does each group have someone really good at catching marshmallows in their mouth?

Has being in the BMG helped you in dating or other social interactions? Do people respond to it favorably?

Is there an aspect of the show which has helped you develop an odd skill which is useful in everyday life?
