Four couples find themselves in a bind when they show up for a dinner party where the hosts are indisposed, to say the least. Watch them muddle through as the night unfolds with enough quirks and twists to keep you laughing all night long.

Donning sweater vests and each armed with a razor-sharp wit, Paul and Robbie Rescigno star in a comedy show that hearkens back to an old-school vaudeville act with contemporary material and brand-spanking new music. If “old-school” feels redundant, we only need to remind you: they’re twins. Redundancy is what they do best.
