Growing up outside of St. Louis, Randy and Jason Sklar had a typical suburban upbringing – playing soccer and baseball after school, hanging out with friends. Then they found comedy.
Moving to New York in 1994, the Sklar brothers worked at a variety of jobs during the day to support their comedy performances at night. Within a few years, they began to develop their unique style – “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),” wrote Neil Strauss of the New York Times. “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 act, the straight man is often an echo.”
Their comedy quickly attracted the attention of MTV’s talent executives looking to develop a different kind of stand up comedy show.
What they came up with was “Apartment 2F” – a sitcom format based around Randy and Jason’s characters living in New York City. The format allowed the team to work into plot lines, live comedy performances, comedic characters, and short films by other performers. The show aired on MTV from July 13, 1997 through November of 1997 garnering rave reviews.
After developing pilots with HBO Independent Productions, WB and NBC, Jason and Randy provided the voices of Biff and Chip Oblong on the critically acclaimed animated show, The Oblongs.
The Sklar Brothers have also guest starred in several TV shows, including an Emmy Award winning episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm. 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.”
Their half hour Comedy Central Presents stand up special is still in regular rotation on the network.
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, the Sklar Brothers write and appear in a regular segment on ESPN’s Sports Center called, “The Bracket”. They fill in as guest hosts for Jim Rome on his popular nationally syndicated radio show.
Also, Randy and Jason can be seen in Touchstone’s, Wild Hogs, as well as in Fox Atomic’s, The Comebacks, and in the season three finale of the cult FX hit “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”
