The St. Louis Jewish community has known for quite a while that the Sklar Brothers are a funny duo. Now the rest of the country is finding out.

Jason and Randy Sklar, twin Jewish brothers who grew up in St. Louis and graduated from Parkway North High School, performed Tuesday night on the NBC competition show “America’s Got Talent.”

The brothers, who hosted ESPN’s comedic sports show “Cheap Seats” and appeared on shows such as “Entourage,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Better Call Saul,” performed a short stand-up set in which they riffed on the aggravations of fatherhood and synchronized on punch lines.

Good news for their St. Louis fan base: they received four yes votes and advanced to the next round.

In addition to their appearances in sitcoms and movies, the Sklar Brothers also sat down with the Jewish Light to film two hilarious interviews in which they discussed their connections to Hanukkah and Purim.

One occurred in 2017 at Kohn’s Kosher Deli and Market.

The other occurred in 2019 after a set at Congregation B’nai Amoona.
