Hey, I have a question regarding this stand-up show:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1496730/?ref_=nm_flmg_slf_7
it's performed by the duo Thomas Acda & Paul de Munnik.
But since they have released 8 albums as a duo they have their own page here on imdb:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4268739/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
Shouldn't that be added to the credits as well?
And how? because they're already on there both as a single artist.
Thanks.

The duo's name "Acda en de Munnik" is seen on-screen in the show's title  (in lower-case as "acda en de munnik", blue text, with "spelen" added in red)  at the beginning of the show and, again, above the end-credits scroll.  Then the end-credits follow with a line crediting the full names "Thomas Acda en Paul de Munnik".

I would suppose that a credit for the duo should be added to the show page.
But I'm not an expert on IMDb's very specific rules.

Some relevant notes can be found under "Group Credits"  (scroll down here):

  http://www.imdb.com/updates/guide/cast#group

  (Note:  Thanks to Gromit82 who mentioned  that documentation in an earlier discussion.)

Key point:

> "When a group with identifiable members appears on screen,"
   [IMDb will credit them] "according to the way they are
   credited in the production. ..."

The further notes in that section include this:

> "... If they are credited both as a group and individually ...
   then both the group name and individual names
   would be listed as they are in the credits."

I suppose, in this case, since the duo's name is visible on-screen (in the title, at the beginning and again above the end-credits), it should be considered credited, and should be added to the credits on the the show page (in addition to the existing credits for the individuals). ... But If I'm somehow wrong about this, then I hope an expert will reply to steer us right.

OK. ... Of course, the IMDb editors will make the final decision (in accordance with their current rules and practices) to accept or reject the credit.
