Randy Sklar of The Sklar Brothers on Seinfeld, sports nerds and Adult Swim

The Sklar Brothers stand apart in the current comedy scene with their unique style of two-man storytelling and accessibly nerdy material. Primarily known for their hilariously analytical take on sports with ESPN's Cheap Seats and the History Channel's Freakanomics-style look at U.S. data, The United Stats of America, Randy and Jason Sklar have honed a metronomic rhythm in their standup comedy after years of touring together. We recently chatted with one half of the twins, Jason Sklar, in anticipation of their upcoming shows at Comedy Works, discussing how comedy has changed over their two decades in the business, as well as the podcast revolution and why they are not the Smothers Brothers.
