Sklar Brothers:

Randy and Jason Sklar began as one zygote and later guest starred in many TV shows, including an Emmy Award winning episode of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, the FX hit “It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, as well as Adult Swim’s Childrens’ Hospital. They starred as conjoined twins in a memorable episode of Grey's Anatomy and as warring agents on HBO's Entourage. Of the Entourage episode, Entertainment Weekly television critic Paul Katz wrote of their turn, “in the hands of comedic masters, The Sklar Brothers, they made it soar.” They’ve also appeared in such films as Touchstone's, Wild Hogs, and Fox Atomic's, The Comebacks. They currently host the critically acclaimed History Channel docucomedy
that highlights the ways in which statistics tell the story of America called The United Stats of America. In November of 2006, Randy and Jason wrapped their 4th and final season of their cult classic comedy series, Cheap Seats on ESPN Classic. They also wrote and appeared in a regular segment on ESPN's SportsCenter called, “The Bracket” from 2008 to 2009. In addition they regularly fill in as guest hosts for Jim Rome on his popular nationally syndicated radio show.
As stand up comedians, they recorded their second half hour Comedy Central Presents in November 2009 and it premiered in March of 2010. The Onion A.V. Club named their latest comedy CD
Hendersons And Daughters in their Top 10 Comedy albums of 2011.
And Neil Strausse of the New York Times said of the Sklars, “Their
comedy accepts the reality of being twins but does not use it as a
crutch. Instead," noted Strauss, "they work with their physical and
mental similarities and correspondences, their status as imperfect
carbon copies of each other. In their comedy, the straight man is often
an echo."
Randy and Jason currently reside in Los Angeles, where they record
their popular weekly sports comedy podcasts Sklarbro Country and
Sklarbro County for earwolf.com.

Perry Strong:

 

 

Perry Strong is an up and coming comedy talent inspired by the highs, lows and flows of New York City life, from the perspective of a native and denizen.  His raw, daring observations about experiences with relationships, women and substance abuse hit both above the belt and well below.  His humor, performed regularly at clubs in NYC and Los Angeles, have earned him a reputation as an edgy, “bewitching” performer inducing even skeptical adult audiences into laughter.

A charismatic stage presence, it’s easy to forget that Perry has been formally performing for less than four years.  He honed his standup as a regular within the NYC circuit, locally headlining Gotham Comedy Club, The Stand NYC and the Greenwich Village Comedy Club.  Regionally, Perry has headlined at Joker’s Wild in New Haven, CT.  Breaking out of his immediate home area, Perry has also successfully taken his brand of humor to the Cape Fear Comedy Festival in Wilmington, NC and Comedy with Hannibal Burress At The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY.

Equally comfortable on-screen, Perry is a natural actor and commentator.  His praise and skewering of pop star beauty and reputation fueled television credits that include 2012 appearances in three episodes of  Vh1′s 100 Greatest Women In Music, as well as March 2013 appearances in all five episodes of Vh1′s 100 Sexiest Music Artists.  Perry was featured in a spoof commercial on on TruTv’s World’s Smartest Inventions.  In the last year, he has co-starred in the in the short film “You Good!” which screened at the Friar’s Club Comedy Film Festival and The LA Comedy Festival.  Perry’s newest short film, “The Stick,” has just completed post production and is being submitted to film festivals around the country.

From behind a camera, Perry has enjoyed a ten year career as a freelance media professional; camera operating, producing, editing and directing everything from short films and commercials to reality television and EPK’s.  In addition to co-starring, he also produced and edited “You Good!” as well as “The Stick.”  Perry’s backstage maturity has also taken him into show promotion and management, evidenced by his 2013 “Dirty Thursdays” shows at The Stand NYC, mentioned in the “NSFW” section of Time Out NY Magazine (9/5 issue) and The ForgetMeNot Comedy Tour.
