Type it in?
If you have more than a couple then you could create an action of the type
"Replace with regular expression".
Enter as search string:
(.*), (.*)
Enter as replace string:
$2 $1

this takes the comma as separator and will lead to rather strange results for all entries that have more than one comma (e.g. Earth, WInd & Fire will become Wind & Fire Earth).
