The Host

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.

Daniel Van Kirk is a UCB Performer, Writer at NFL Network, a regular on Sklarbro County, Hindsight, & Wahlberg Solution, and hosts DVK on Nerdist Channel.

This week, Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick, Silicon Valley) starts a Grand Theft Auto mission and winds up in Dumb People Town! Kumail talks to the Sklars and Daniel Van Kirk about his smash hit movie “The Big Sick,” working with Ray Romano, and how tricky it can be to make a movie about standup. In Story #1, a man needs a LOT of help after becoming intimately involved with a wrench. Kumail discusses writing and making “The Big Sick,” and trying to portray characters from the stand up scene that feel true. In Story #2, thieves leave behind copious evidence after stealing devices that are literally made to be tracked. The group discusses Kumail’s character arc on the latest season of Silicon Valley and Kumail’s family’s reaction to his movie before diving into Story #3, in which a man with a lethal snake bite doesn’t react quite how you’d expect. Robert Durst leaves a voicemail about his new piñata business.
