The Lucas Brothers
Add to Calendar
The Lucas Bros (Keith and Kenny Lucas) continue their rise as two of the freshest, most dynamic new faces on the comedy scene. Currently, they are writing and starring in a feature film to be co-written and directed by Judd Apatow. The Bros co-wrote the upcoming Fred Hampton biopic JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH, and are producing a half-hour series for CBS All Access. “In a short time....the Lucas Brothers have made a big impact on comedy,” lauds Vulture, and on Tuesday April 18, 2017, the guys’ 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. Known for their roles in 22 JUMP STREET, they were also recurring characters on Season 1 of the Netflix series LADY DYNAMITE starring fellow comic Maria Bamford.
Keith and Kenny can be seen in CNN’s THE HISTORY OF COMEDY as well as HBO’s CRASHING, Executive Produced by Judd Apatow. 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; narrating hilarious, absurdist tales with, as The New York Times praised, “a disarming sweetness and a clever, stylized casualness.” The brothers also hosted the web series THE SUPER LATE MORNING SHOW on ComedyCentral.com, which premiered in February 2013. Additionally, The 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 guys 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 series including THE MELTDOWN WITH JONAH AND KUMAIL, THE HIGH COURT, and ADAM DEVINE’S HOUSE PARTY. They were named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch of 2014, featured in Rolling Stone Magazine’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 the Bros as one of the top acts of 2017.
