Edgy music-driven comedy duo Dakaboom is two guys doing comedy that combines the musical genres of pop, opera, hip-hop, jazz, musical theatre and a cappella. One is a curly redhead with Franki Valli's sinuses and a keen sense of humor. The other is a wide-eyed brunette ingénue with old-fashioned flair, a flawless voice and an occasional mermaid costume. They're long-time best friends who reference the old-school vaudeville style, while manipulating it into a playful, modern art form.
