These guys have especially excellent hair. I have to single out Durno's "parting of the Red Sea" mustache hairdo.

that's so true - incredible hair. david blaine could take a few hints from these guys and grow some heavy waves, maybe a zappa, or a handlebar at the very least. entertainers just aren't as interesting as they once were (or at least seemed)
