Comedians, actors, and writers The Lucas Brothers (Keith and Kenny Lucas) continue their rise as two of the freshest, most dynamic new faces on the comedy scene. “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 Brothers: On Drugs premiered on Netflix. They were also recently seen as recurring characters on Season 1 of the hit Netflix series Lady Dynamite starring fellow comic Maria Bamford.
Keith and Kenny are the creators of the animation series Lucas Brothers. 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.
