Alot of comedy falls under great scrutiny and derision, often unnecessarily so. Impressions, props, magic, duos — anything slightly out of the ordinary seems to open itself up to criticism. Yes, there are bad impressionists, but there’s also Frank Caliendo, Mike MacRae and James Adomian. There are bad prop comics, but then there’s Carrot Top, who knows what time it is but still owns it.
Fortunately, the Sklar Brothers, who headline local comedy and beer fest Cincy Brew Ha-Ha Friday night, have avoided such slings and arrows by developing a truly organic stand-up act. Of course, it helps that, as twins, they’ve been in and out of each other’s pockets since birth. The Sklar Brothers are widely known for doing a lot of sports-related comedy, most notably from their ESPN Classics series Cheap Seats, as well as their duties guest-hosting for sports radio talk show host Jim Rome.
