The Sklar Brothers

Ya gotta love this high energy, razor sharp, hysterically funny comedy duo. As stars of ESPN Classic’s “Cheap Seats,” a show that showcased the twin’s wits as they “ripped on” classic sports, their popularity has grown by leaps and bounds. Growing up outside of St. Louis, RANDY & JASON SKLAR had a typical suburban upbringing – playing soccer and baseball after school, hanging out with friends. Then they found comedy.
