Nathan Rabin & The Sklarbros Sitting in a TreeCheck out this great review Nathan Rabin of the Onion wrote :Being a late-night host requires skill set to rival a Navy SEAL’s, but the most important quality for the job is likeability. Audiences have to have genuine affection for a performer to want to spend time with them night in and night out, year after year. That’s why Chevy Chase and Jerry Lewis famously crashed and burned as talk-show hosts: Audiences could see the evil in their souls, and consequently changed the channel. It would be hard to imagine a duo more likeable than The Sklar Brothers, the identical-twin stand-up comedy team whose Sklarbro Country and Sklarbro County podcasts are consistent delights. The Sklars are the comedy equivalent of what in baseball is known as a five-tool player. They’re frighteningly smart and lightning-fast in a way that never calls attention to itself, but betrays an exceedingly broad frame of reference. (Hell, they host a comedy podcast devoted to the seemingly antithetical worlds of indie rock and sports, and they appeal to a wide audience that isn’t necessarily interested in either.) And they possess a remarkable ability to seem genuinely interested and engaged by everything, whether it’s a guest’s project, the speed and efficiency of Stamps.com, or the stylishness of Bonobos pants. If you can seem passionate, genuine, and sincere while reading sponsor copy on a podcast, then acting fascinated by a NASCAR driver or supermodel should be a breeze.

From the New York Times
“Segel was 19 when he was cast as Nick Andopolis, the pothead with a 29-piece drum set. John Francis Daley, only 13 at the time, was cast as Lindsay Weir’s brother, Sam, lover of Star Wars and Bill Murray movies.”
I love this epigraph the most.
This March 31st, don’t get too carried away.
Watch this sketch about the dangers of rogue wikipedia editing I shot with some good friends. I’m in the tag but my man Colin Rich is a mastermind editor, director, creator.
Tim Stafford, Nadia Vazquez, Nathan Cramton, Ely LaMay, and Spencer Smith staaaaaaaaaaaarr in it.
