Sklar Brothers Bring Geeky Spin To Sports Talk Show Format On Nerdist

7 November 2012 3:51 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

If you're a sports fan (like me) and you had a habit of flipping channels late at night between 2004 and 2006 (also like me), then you should be familiar with the Sklar Brothers, whose Cheap Seats show provided four seasons of good laughs on Espn Classic.

The Sklar Brothers Find the Comedy Behind the Numbers in 'United Stats of America'

8 May 2012 1:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As identical twin comedians, Randy and Jason Sklar represent an unusual statistic all their own. And the brothers' own love of stats shines through in their work in sports-related comedy, from their series "Cheap Seats," which ran on Espn Classic for four seasons, to their "SportsCenter" segment "The Bracket" and their popular podcast "Sklarbro Country." With their new series "United Stats of America," which premieres on the History Channel tonight, Tuesday, May 8th at 10pm, the funnymen expand their fondness for numbers into broader territory by exploring topics like how long we live, how we spend our time, how we spend our money and how the average American is growing in size. Indiewire caught up with the siblings over the phone to talk about this new hosting gig and how humor and statistics can complement each other -- after all, as Jay explained, "In order to lampoon something, you have to understand it first. »
