2. The Lucas Brothers (twin brothers, Keith and Kenny) @Lucasbros
Born: High Point, North Carolina
Current Fame: The Lucas Bros Moving Co. (FOX ADHD)
Style: Lazy and clean
Brief synopsis of your animated show
Kenny: It’s a show about two dudes who run a small business in Brooklyn. They’re ordinary, but live in a world where their decisions often lead to chaos. Most times their logic is incredibly valid, but not very sound.
Is it true that one of you wanted to be a wrestler and the other a lawyer?
Kenny: We both wanted to be professional wrestlers, but realized that there weren’t many opportunities for 5’7 skinny black twins in professional wrestling. So, we eventually gravitated toward academics, and decided on law when we were in college.
Why did you two make the joint decision to pursue comedy?
Keith: We both hated law school. Kenny started doing comedy first.
Kenny: Yeah, I convinced Keith to drop out toward the end of law school. He was apprehensive, but he didn’t want to take his finals.
Before FOX your biggest check as comedians came from…
Keith: We shot a web series for NBA 2K (videogame) in Las Vegas.
Favorite twins historically
Keith: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito (from the movie Twins). They helped change our minds regarding fraternal twins. We use to believe that they didn’t count, but after the movie, we believed in them.
