Comedians, actors, and writers The Lucas Bros (Keith and Kenny Lucas) continue their rise as two of the freshest, most dynamic new faces on the comedy scene. Born in a ghetto in Newark, NJ, and raised in a ghetto in High Point, North Carolina, the identical twins now appear in movies and on TV, and perform standup comedy all over the country; even in ghettoes.
Named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch of 2014, their weekly sketch comedy show Friends of the People premiered on TruTV on Tuesday, October 28th, 2014 at 10:30PM PT/ET and was just renewed for a second season. They also were also recently featured in the blockbuster summer comedy feature film 22 Jump Street alongside Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Ice Cube.
Keith and Kenny are the creators of the animation series Lucas Bros. Moving Co., which will premiere its second season on January 22nd at midnight on FXX. The series premiered as part of Fox's Animation Domination Hi-Def block on January 11, 2014. The brothers voice the series’ main characters; narrating hilarious, absurdist tales with, as The New York Times praised, “a disarming sweetness and a clever, stylized casualness.” Additionally, they are currently developing their own live action series with Fox. The brothers also host the web series The Super Late Morning Show on ComedyCentral.com, which premiered in February 2013.
The guys made their latenight debut when they performed standup on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in 2012 and have been a favorite on the show since. They were featured in Rolling Stone Magazine's "Hot List," appeared on the cult hit TV show Arrested Development (Netflix), Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party, and HBO's Funny As Hell, as well as standouts on the New Faces show at the prestigious Montreal “Just For Laughs” Comedy Festival.
Bret “The Hitman” Hart is their favorite person of all time.
