Comedians, actors, and writers, the Lucas Bros (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 BROS: ON DRUGS” premiered on Netflix. Paste Magazine, Complex, Uproxx, and Splitsider voted it as one of the top specials of 2017. They were also recently seen as recurring characters on Season 1 of the hit Netflix series “LADY DYNAMITE” starring fellow comic Maria Bamford. In 2018, Variety announced that the Bros will co-star in the New Line produced feature film “THE COME UP” with fellow comedians Jermaine Fowler (SORRY TO BOTHER YOU) and Lil Rel Howry (GET OUT).
Coming up, Keith and Kenny will be seen in CNN’s “THE HISTORY OF COMEDY” as well as HBO’s “CRASHING”, Executive Produced by Judd Apatow and created by Pete Holmes. 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.
