Hans Gruber

David and B.J. are agents of Hans Gruber.  They are well regarded as crack commandos of improv comedy.   Rumor has it they have never been seen together on stage, with some assuming they are the same person.   They plan to disprove this rumor at Duofest.  By the time everyone figures out they are actually two people, they’ll be on a beach, earning 20%.
