Who Is The Sklar Brothers
The Sklar Brothers, Jason Sklar & Randy Sklar are identical twin comedians with a net worth of $5 million dollars, as of 2020.
While on the surface, it may seem like twin brothers performing stand-up comedy together is little more than a gimmick, Jason and Randy Sklar have turned it into something special. Delivering what they refer to as “tag team comedy,” the brothers unleash an arsenal of deadpan jokes, all expertly timed so that they play off one another — finishing each others sentences, talking over one another, delivering punchlines in unison. In addition to their success in the world of alternative comedy, the Sklar Brothers are also well known in the world of professional sports commentary thanks to their work on ESPN shows like SportsCenter and Cheap Seats. It’s a testament to their talent that they’ve successfully carved out a niche for themselves in both comedy and sports that has nothing to do with them looking exactly alike.
