Default names names names

So Joe & I are developing our act and we have yet to come up with a name for our duo...

If you haven't seen it yet, here's the teaser vid for our act:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGd0yNs19kw

Most of the act (like 70%) is tricks on the chinese poles and we have some juggling bits in between. Some slapstick and comedy too...

The hardest thing is to name yourselves so... HELP!!!

Penn & Teller seems to be a successful name.

'Not made in China'.

'2 guys give a big pole a real workout' (better for a video title)
probably would get you lots of hits on youtube

'Bipolar'

'Polar attraction'

'Pole Position'

Scot

It's a matter of who wants to watch a troupe named after what they do?

I wouldn't want to watch someone named the Magic Johnsons do magic.

I'd rather watch copperfield or the pendragons. I wouldn't wash my clothes with Detergentlemen, I'd use Tide or All.

Musicocity or Harry Nilsson?

THAT is an excellent comment Scot, and exactly along the lines of what we've been thinking.

We liked "birdmen" but too many people had really negative perceptions of birds.

Then Joe got fixated on monkies and insisting we call ourselves something do with monkies... but I'm permenantly scarred by a 6th grade field trip of monkies jerking off and hurling feces...

also,

The word "Pole" just sounds awful and we have been actively avoiding sexual innuendo.

we're going to need to know a bit more about your characters then cause so far all we know is you do pole tricks

shame you got a thing about monkeys 'monkey see monkey do' could have been good

"Fecal Matters" ...as in, it's very important.

But seriously, even just "Slap Stick", "stick" being the pole, and you guys slap each other around and stuff, which it seems you do... could work? mayhaps?
