Let the Lucas Brothers Explain Their Jump From Law School to Comedy


Comedians, writers, actors, and identical twins, the Lucas Brothers (Keith and Kenny) describe their stand-up as “laid-back.”

Keith and Kenny are the creators of the popular animation series Lucas Bros. Moving Co. on FXX. The brothers voice the show’s main characters, narrating hilarious, absurdist (and sometimes stoner-y) tales.

Born in Newark, New Jersey, and raised in High Point, North Carolina, the Lucas Bros. came to New York to pursue stand-up after their third year of law school (Kenny at NYU, Keith at Duke). Since then, they’ve been in movies and on TV, and perform stand-up comedy all over the country.

The guys made their late-night debut when they performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in 2012 — they’ve been a favorite on the show ever since. They also appear on truTV’s sketch show, Friends of the People.
