identical twins not only have a unique “interplay” delivery style, but they
also possess an insightful point of view, which has made them favorites of both
the mainstream and alternative comedy scenes. In November of 2006, Randy and
Jason wrapped their 4th and final season of their critically acclaimed comedy
series, Cheap Seats on ESPN Classic. In 77 episodes, the Sklars built a strong
following in both the sports and comedy worlds. Currently, they write and
appear in a regular segment on ESPN's SportsCenter called, “The Bracket”.
have also appeared on several network shows including It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Entourage and Grey’s Anatomy.
Most recently the identical twins have appeared in film Wild Hogs and the Comeback.
But standup is where their Wonder Twin power activates. Their unique take on
standup penned as "a tag team delivery in which one talks over the end of
the other's sentence, completing, adding to or reaffirming his comment (much
like the raps of The Beastie Boys)," by the New York Times, leaves
audiences doubled-over with laughter.
