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, Adult Swim’s CHILDRENS’ HOSPITAL, and most recently in USA Network’s critically acclaimed comedy PLAYING HOUSE, IFC’s hit show MARON, and multiple Season 3 episodes of BETTER CALL SAUL. In addition, the Sklars recently appeared in Comedy Central’s ROAST BATTLE III and CNN’s THE HISTORY OF COMEDY.
The Sklars starred as conjoined twins in a memorable episode of GREY’S ANATOMY, and as warring agents on HBO's ENTOURAGE, of which Entertainment Weekly television critic Paul Katz wrote, “in the hands of comedic masters, The Sklar Brothers, they made it soar.” The Sklars have also appeared in such films as Touchstone's WILD HOGS, Fox Atomic’s THE COMEBACKS, and the popular Netflix movie TEACHER OF THE YEAR alongside Keegan Michael Key, Larry Joe Campbell and Jamie Kaler.
The Sklars also hosted the critically acclaimed History Channel docu-comedy THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA which highlighted the ways in which statistics tell the story of the US and appeared monthly on Showtime’s JIM ROME ON SHOWTIME in their regular segment “Sklarred For Life,” where they took a humorous look at the past month in sports.
In November of 2006, Randy and Jason wrapped the fourth and final season of their cult classic comedy series CHEAP SEATS on ESPN Classic, and wrote and appeared in regular segment “The Bracket” on ESPN's SportsCenter from 2008 to 2009. In addition, the Sklars regularly fill in as guest hosts for Jim Rome on his popular nationally syndicated radio show.
As stand-up comedians, the Sklars recorded their second half hour COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS special in November 2009, which premiered in March 2010. The Onion A.V. Club named the Sklars’ third comedy album HENDERSON AND DAUGHTERS in their Top 10 Comedy albums of 2011. In April 2014, the Sklars 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.
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 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 two hit podcasts; for sports fans, VIEW FROM THE CHEAP SEATS stands squarely at the intersection of sports and comedy, boasting huge guests of both worlds, from Bill Burr to Bob Costas. Their other podcast DUMB PEOPLE TOWN is currently being developed by Sony as an animated narrative half-hour comedy co-starring Will Arnett. Read more...

Comedian Shuler King was born Frank Williams III in Sumter, South Carolina. He knew at an early age that he was destined to be an entertainer, especially since he was the kid known for cracking jokes. King grew up in a traditional 2-parent household in the Bible Belt of the South, where Faith, Hard Work and Education were the foundations of what his parents imparted on him and his two siblings. Comedy is his passion, but he has taken a rather unusual path to get to where he is thus far. He graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.A. in Media Arts where he joined The Mighty Illustrious Zeta Zeta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated.
In 2013, he graduated from Gupton Jones Mortuary College with a degree in Mortuary Science. When he isn’t on the road performing at comedy clubs and special events across the country, King works as a licensed funeral director and embalmer in Georgia and South Carolina at his family’s funeral business in South Carolina. He wants to keep his family’s business and legacy alive. He’s probably the only Comedian/Funeral Director on the comedy circuit.
King has opened for some of the most notable and talented comedians and comediennes in the industry. He credits his parents strict yet loving upbringing, his harsh surroundings growing up and the state of the country today with giving him his comedic style, which he describes as RAW. King says “Comedy isn’t about being happy all the time. Comedy is just as much about pain that people endure. When you hear 20,000 people in an arena laugh at a joke it’s because they all can relate to experiencing that same pain”. His comedy career began while he was a Freshman in college, after he took the stage for the very first time at the NCO Club on a military base and the rest is history. King is one of the most energetic rising comedians in the business.
Although the comedy business can be very tough and filled with ups and downs, King credits his unwavering Faith in God as the calming force in his life which keeps him pushing forward. His hilarious videos he posts on his social media have quickly become fan favorites. His recent video post about Donald Trump went viral and was even played on a UK television show. The future is definitely bright for King. Read more...
