The Sirois Brothers were born and raised in Palanga, Lithuania.
Their formative years were spent learning the family trade of mining "Gintaras", know as Amber, from the Baltic Sea.
Years of working closely with, and ingesting trace amounts of, Amber have left the boys with some unique physical characteristics.
Cash's heart only beats 10-15 times per minute, and he survives on a strict diet of uncooked Mollusks and Seawater.
Mike wears a glove on his left hand at all times to hide his nail-less fingers, and he is incapable of love.
The Sirois' left their homeland in the late 1980's to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
After stints with the German "Circus Krone" and the renowned Italian "Moira Orfei Circus", the brothers boarded a steamer destined for the East Coast of America.
It was on that trip that Mike learned the arts of both dance and desalination. An attempt at combining the two into a small business venture that bottled the recycled sweat of strippers into drinkable bottled water failed. He became destitute…and turned to sports.
Meanwhile, Cash was flourishing! He left Mike in Miami the day that the boat came ashore and immediately looked for work, eventually finding employment in the mailroom at a small company called Swatch.
One day, on his regular route through the Presidents office, Cash (who swears he was not under the influence) SWORE he could see the inner workings of the grandfather clock in the office. The President of Swatch laughed, because it was funny, and he told Cash that if anything ever came of the idea, he’d remember this moment as its genesis.
To this day, the see-through Swatch, with all the little parts moving and the plastic paisley band, is the best selling Swatch of all time.
Cash instantly became rich beyond his wildest dreams.
The brothers wandered the United States separately, barely speaking, for years.
Until, in the Fall of 2009, Cash came to the Metroplex in search of a lock of hair from Bobby Carpenter, whom he still views as a deity.
Mike had met Norm Hitzges, who fed him, gave him clothes, and taught him a passible level of social etiquette. It was he who now had to be the voice of reason for the brothers.
As the two became closer, they shared sports stories….feelings…and milkshakes whenever possible.
One day, Mike left the audio recording application in his smart phone on as the two were drinking absinthe and breaking down the Cowboys two-deep special teams charts. Norm heard this recording and became intoxicated with what he heard.
He entered Jeff Catlin’s “Oxygen Sauna*” and told the boss that the brothers deserved a show on the weekends on The Ticket.
Catlin, barely conscious, assumed Hitzges knew what he was talking about and simply said “Go make show what you think don’t is……”….and then he trailed off…
Norm ran with what he was certain was a direct order to press the launch button on “The Cirque du Sirois Show”….and Team Havin Fun was born!
