The Hosts

The Sklar Brothers are a post-modern take on a stand up comedy duo. Neil Strauss of the New York Times once wrote “Their comedy accepts the reality of being twins but does not use it as a crutch. Instead, they work 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.” They have released 4 critically acclaimed comedy albums, have had two Comedy Central Half Hour Presents specials, and currently have a one hour stand up special on Netflix, titled “What Are We Talking About” Their next one hour special will appear on Seeso in 2017.

Koechner talks to the Sklar about performing on SNL, and playing baseball in Kauffman stadium through hosting the charity Big Slick. Also, the greatest Superbowls are debated, the contentious 1985 World Series is brought up, and the nation’s top baseball stadiums are ranked. In Quick Hits, a Russian tennis player harassing an umpire, Dak Prescott’s signing machine allegations, and how to raise the stakes of the MLB All-Star Game.
