Rockwell and Wood

The "nut act" is comedy all the time, whether they are singing or talking. While the straight man talks, the comedian keeps up a line of comment, such as an abused wife or deceived young girl. The comedian does not attempt "cissified" talk, but rather in a masculine way.
The shorter of the men, Rockwell, has an original funny idea throughout the turn that gets the house immediately. There is no doubt the duo would make any English-speaking audience laugh. When they did their act at the American Roof last week, they would not take an encore as their 16 minute act seemed more like 10.
The "nut" comedian is one of the best, ensuring the two are a big time turn.
