Dom and Dumber have taken on a mammoth task, combining magic and sketch comedy into an entirely new genre. In this week’s Scamapalooza, Dom Chambers and Bayden Hammond sit down and talk about their favourite comedy, magicians and how you manage to jam the two of them together.
The pair’s comedic influences range from Abbott and Costello to Aunty Donna to Mac King and they work in mediums from the stage to social media videos. In fact, Dom has over 20 million views on Facebook alone.
