Stand-Up Comedian brothers Randy and Jason Sklar began as one zygote and later guest starred in a handful of TV shows including an Emmy Award winning episode of HBO’s CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, the FX hit IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, and Adult Swim’s CHILDRENS’ HOSPITAL. In addition, the Sklars recently appeared in Comedy Central’s ROAST BATTLE III and CNN’s THE HISTORY OF COMEDY.
The Sklars also hosted the critically acclaimed History Channel docu-comedy THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA which highlighted the ways in which statistics tell the story of the US and appeared monthly on Showtime’s JIM ROME ON SHOWTIME in their regular segment “Sklarred For Life,” where they took a humorous look at the past month in sports. In November of 2006, Randy and Jason wrapped the fourth and final season of their cult classic comedy series CHEAP SEATS on ESPN Classic, and wrote and appeared in regular segment “The Bracket” on ESPN’s SportsCenter. The Sklars regularly fill in as guest hosts for Jim Rome on his popular nationally syndicated radio show.
As stand-up comedians, the Sklars recorded their second half hour COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS special in November 2009, which premiered in March 2010. The Onion A.V. Club named the Sklars’ third comedy album HENDERSON AND DAUGHTERS in their Top 10 Comedy albums of 2011. In April 2014, the Sklars recorded and released a one-hour stand-up special and album titled THE SKLAR BROTHERS: WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT on Netflix to rave reviews.
In addition to their recorded albums, the twins continue to share their humor at live performances…like this one! Don’t miss them while they’re at the Dairy Arts Center!
“[The Sklars’] comedy accepts the reality of being twins but does not use it as a crutch. Instead they work with their physical and mental similarities and their status as imperfect carbon copies of each other. In their comedy, the straight man is often an echo.”
