Lucas Brothers              

Stand-Up Comedy Duo

Comedians, actors, and writers, the Lucas Brothers (Keith and Kenny Lucas) continue their rise as two of the freshest, most dynamic new faces on the comedy scene. In 2017, the brothers' first hour standup special The Lucas Bros: On Drugs premiered on Netflix. Paste Magazine, Complex, Uproxx, and Splitsider voted it as one of the top specials of 2017. They were also recently seen as recurring characters on Season 1 of the hit Netflix series Lady Dynamite starring fellow comic Maria Bamford.

Coming up, Keith and Kenny will be seen in HBO’s Crashing, Executive Produced by Judd Apatow and created by Pete Holmes. They also wrote for TNT’s 2017 NBA Awards, and they are the creators of the animation series Lucas Bros Moving Co, which aired for one season on Fox’s Animation Domination Hi-Def block in 2014 and for a second season on FXX. The brothers voiced the series’ main characters. The brothers also hosted the web series The Super Late Morning Show on ComedyCentral.com, which premiered in February 2013. Additionally, The Lucas Bros starred in two seasons of the weekly sketch comedy series Friends of the People on TruTV, and they were featured in the FOX primetime series The Grinder starring Rob Lowe. They also appeared in the blockbuster summer comedy feature film 22 Jump Street alongside Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum and Ice Cube.

The brothers made their late night debut when they performed standup on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in 2012 and have been a favorite on Fallon’s Tonight Show since, with multiple appearances. They are also familiar faces on Comedy Central, with appearances on several of the network’s shows including The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, The High Court with Doug Benson, and Adam Devine’s House Party. They were named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch of 2014, featured in Rolling Stone’s “Hot List,” appeared on the cult hit TV show Arrested Development (Netflix) and HBO’s Funny as Hell, and were standouts at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival with Paste Magazine selecting them as one of the top acts of 2017.

The Lucas Brothers Are Stand Up’s Most Powerful Duo

No, you’re not seeing double. Though stand-up comedy is typically a solo form, Keith and Kenny Lucas, also known as the Lucas Brothers, take a different approach. The two comedians are identical twins who perform stand-up together. Their act may be a little hard to classify — one tongue-in-cheek headline called them “the next big thing in identical twin stoner comedy” — but their charismatic, surprising performances have won both critical acclaim and a devoted fan base.
