    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.
