In this paper we study the singularities of holomorphic functions of bicomplex variables introduced by G. B. Price (An Introduction to Multicomplex Spaces and Functions, Dekker, New York, 1991). In particular, we use computational algebra techniques to show that even in the case of one bicomplex variable, there cannot be compact singularities. The same techniques allow us to prove a duality theorem for such functions.
