Headliner: The Sklar Brothers
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. 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.
They currently host 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.
Opening Act: Nick Vatterott
In 2010 The Hollywood Reporter named Nick Vatterott one of the “break-outs” at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. Since then he has performed on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and has a half hour special on Comedy Central. Nick was also a producer/writer/performer on Comedy Central’s stand-up sketch hybrid show Mash-Up.
Nick has toured with Chicago’s storied Second City and his sketch group ‘Heavyweight’ has performed at Second City’s Unhinged and the Toronto Just for Laughs Festival. He was the recipient of the prestigious Andy Kaufman award in 2011 and before heading off to NYC, Chicago Magazine listed Nick as “The Funniest Man in Chicago.”
Nick Vatterott’s comedy has been called high-energy, improvisational, unconventional, outside the box, but most of all hilarious!
Emcee: Kelsey McClure
Kelsey McClure, of Comedy in the Lou, is a distinctively average comedian. She books, promotes and produces a variety of comedy events in the city. She doesn’t mind speaking in third person and one day hopes to sit on Conan O’Brien’s couch.
Once a month she recommends comedy shows and gets to interview comedians on occasion. Kelsey is also the organizer of the Riverfront Times Standup Throwdown–a standup comedy competition for aspiring comedians. Proof of which can be found via the Riverfront Times.
