Meet Yumbo Dump, The Japanese Duo That Makes Unbelievable Sounds With Their Bodies
Japanese performers have graced the stages of Got Talent competitions throughout the world. Although there is an Asia’s Got Talent, performers like the comedic duo Yumbo Dump have goals that extend well beyond Asia. Get to know the hilarious act that is Yumbo Dump, as they compete on America’s Got Talent All Stars.
Yumbo Dump Creates Sounds Using Their Bodies
The comedy duo Yumbo Dump made a name for themselves due to their unique ability to create sounds using their bodies. Yumbo Dump brought the laughs with their physical humor by using their bodies as props to create very specific noises.
Yumbo Dump is a comedic duo consisting of Go Kashu as Yumbo, and Daisuke Fujiwara as Dump, both are from Japan. The two of them create noise using their bodies and tools to sound like various things such as owls, dolphins, and UFOs.
Their comedic stunts, although funny, are certainly not everyone’s cup of tea. Yumbo Dump has been met with controversy in the past, with some viewers vocally disliking their act on social media. Throughout their run in AGT season 13, they are the recipients of several Red Buzzers from the judges who found their act off-putting.
The duo stays optimistic during their every performance though and prefers to spread happiness however they can. After making it to the Quarterfinals on AGT, Yumbo Dump competed on the German version of the show Das Supertalent in 2019. The same year, they also appeared in Israel’s Got Talent, and more recently in Greece’s Got Talent in 2022.
Heidi Klum Disliked Their Dolphin Love Story Act
During the duo’s performance at the Quarterfinals of AGT, they received several Red Buzzers, three in total. Howie Mandel was the only judge that didn’t press his Red Buzzer on Yumbo Dump, and even gave them a standing ovation.
The same can’t be said about Heidi Klum though, the German model stayed adamant about her decision in their final act of the show. Simon Cowell and Mel B both took back their Red Buzzer votes upon seeing the dolphin love story part of Yumbo Dump’s act. Klum however, chose to keep her vote the way it was, despite the crowd chanting for her to take it back.
“I really like you guys, and you really make me laugh in the past,” Klum said. “But this is the live show, and I feel like you didn’t step it up.”
Love them or hate them, there’s currently nothing stopping this comedic duo from attaining gold at AGT All Stars. As one of the 60 amazing acts that will compete against each other on AGT All Stars, Yumbo Dump will deliver the most hilarious acts the viewers will witness.
