And Neil Strausse of the New York Times said of the Sklars, Their comedy accepts the reality of being twins but does not use it as a crutch. Instead, noted Strauss, they work with their physical and mental similarities and correspondences, their status as imperfect carbon copies of each other. In their comedy, the straight man is often an echo.

Their comedy quickly attracted the attention of MTV's talent executives looking to develop a different kind of comedy show.

What they came up with was " Apartment 2F " a sitcom format based around Randy and Jason's characters living in New York City . The format allowed the team to work into plotlines, live comedy performances, comedic characters, and short films by other performers. The show aired on MTV from July 13, 1997 through November of 1997 garnering rave reviews.
