Two of my true passions in life are ultra-running and stand-up comedy. Everyone knows about the miles I run, but not many know I've spent a huge amount of time over the years going to comedy clubs and watching/listening to just about every stand-up routine I can find on the internet/TV. Sure, there are TONS of horrible comedians out there, but when I find a good one, I feel like I just found a great new running trail in the mountains - "How did I not know about this all along? I need to tell everyone about it!!"
Anyway, back in the mid-nineties I saw the Sklar Brothers' (fraternal twins from St. Louis) for the first time on some random TV special...it was only about a 5 minute routine, but I was hooked right away. Over the years they've been honing their brand of 'twin delivery' to the highest degree of perfection. Lucky for me (and you!), they've recently be hired by Brooks Running to put together some running ads as the "Running Superfans". Here's the clip they did for 'Ultra-Running'...if you like their style of comedy, there are 7 or 8 more clips that will queue up at the bottom of the window...also, you can head over to their site, Running Superfans, for more clips and other stuff. Enjoy!
