Together we are Rocco and George: The Dueling Fools - comedy sword-fighting show. We're not talking about a couple giggles and some clanging of swords. Oh NO! We deliver antics that make a large majority of our audiences laugh so hard that they break out in song! And our swordplay is so spectacular that it has the rest of the audience singing back up vocals with 'oohs' and 'ahs.'
