YO guess who's coming on the podcast tonight?
The Sklar Brothers are bringing their stand up show back to Ann Arbor for two nights and apparently they're big fans of the blog, so we booked them to join us at the Bo Store tonight! You're welcome to come by and join us if you're in town: 5pm to 6pm, 333 S. Main Street. Or if you're not you can watch on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/mH8sp_epUoY (we'll post the window on the site this evening when it goes live), or listen in later when we post the podcast.
Their shows are TONIGHT, Sept. 21, and TOMORROW NIGHT after the game, two shows per night (8 and 10:30pm) at the Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase.
Who're the Sklars?
I mostly remember them from The Cheap Seats, the ESPN Classic show that ran for four seasons in the aughts. Since then the Sklar Brothers have standup specials on Comedy Central, Netflix and most recently on the Starz Network, and have appeared such TV shows as Curb Your Enthusiasm, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Entourage, and most recently, as recurring characters in season 3 of Better Call Saul.
The Brothers regularly fill in for Jim Rome on his popular radio show, and currently they release two podcasts a week: one about sports: View From the Cheap Seats, and the other about dumb people doing dumb things: Dumb People Town.
They attended the University of Michigan from 1990-1994. Tickets are available for the show by calling the Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase or by purchasing them online here: http://www.aacomedy.com/zsep4.cfm
