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, and most recently on the USA Network’s critically acclaimed, Playing House. 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. Most recently, they co-starred in the popular Netflix movie, Teacher Of the Year, alongside Keegan Michael Key, Larry Joe Campbell and Jamie Kaler.

They recently hosted the critically acclaimed History Channel docu-comedy 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 third comedy CD, Hendersons And Daughters in their Top 10 Comedy albums of 2011. In April of 2014, they recorded and released a one hour stand up special and album titled, The Sklar Brothers: What Are We Talking About on Netflix to rave reviews.

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."

The Sklar Brothers appear monthly on Showtime’s, Jim Rome On Showtime in their regular segment, Sklarred For Life, where they take a humorous look at the past month in sports. And in February of 2015, they shot Just Saying, a weekly sports comedy pilot for Comedy Central with Adam McKay and Will Ferrell’s production company, Gary Sanchez.

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.

The journey that so many face with cancer can be a long and difficult one. It has been said that laughter is the best medicine and it can certainly provide much needed comfort on that difficult journey. Laughs 4 Life is a comedic event with the intent of bringing laughter to the Hub City while raising awareness and funds for cancer research. All proceeds from ticket sales will be given to the International Myeloma Foundation and The Forrest General Cancer Center. Expect to be thoroughly entertained by the comedy and impressions of the ultra talented Frank Caliendo with opening acts from Hattiesburg's own Hub City Comedy. VIP Experiences are also available, inclusive of a pre-show dinner at the nearby BottlingCompany highlighted by editorial cartoonist and cancer survivor Marshall Ramsey as well as a post-show meet and greet with our entertainers. The Laughs 4 Life event has been made possible with support from our presenting sponsor Forrest General Hospital. All sponsor funds and proceeds from the event are running through the Greater PineBelt Community Foundation.

After completing an impressive 10-year run on the “FOX NFL Sunday Pregame” show, Frank recently found a new home over at ESPN, where he joined the cast of the “Sunday NFL Countdown”. Realizing that ESPN has a plethora of strong personalities, Frank has added to his already vast arsenal of impressions, a new set of highly entertaining sports persona. An eleven year veteran of television sketch comedy as a cast member on Madtv and starring in his own series Frank TV, Caliendo has been a fixture on television for the last decade with numerous viral videos spawning from his ESPN appearances. Though Frank can be highly known for his variety of sports-related impressions, he makes his live shows appealing for everyone in the audience by continually including a little bit of every major genre - sports, political figures, and celebrities.
