Night Train with Wyatt Cenac
Night Train with Wyatt Cenac

The Lucas Brothers
The Lucas Brothers
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. Born in a ghetto in Newark, NJ, and raised in a ghetto in High Point, North Carolina, the identical twins now appear in movies and on TV, and perform standup comedy all over the country; even in ghettoes.

Named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch of 2014, they can currently be seen in the highly-anticipated summer comedy feature film 22 Jump Street alongside Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Ice Cube. They are also the creators of the animation series Lucas Bros. Moving Co., which premiered as part of Fox's Animation Domination Hi-Def block on January 11, 2014. The brothers voice the series’ main characters, narrating hilarious, absurdist tales with, as The New York Times praised, “a disarming sweetness and a clever, stylized casualness.” They are currently writing the series’ second season. Additionally, they are currently developing their own live action series with the network.

The brothers host the web series The Super Late Morning Show on ComedyCentral.com, which premiered in February 2013. They are also currently shooting the sketch comedy show Friends of the People, which they co-created, and will star in and Executive Produce. The series will premiere on TruTV in September 2014.

Keith and Kenny made their latenight debut when they performed standup on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in 2012. They were featured in Rolling Stone Magazine's "Hot List," appeared on the cult hit TV show Arrested Development (Netflix), Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party, and HBO's Funny As Hell. They were also NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity finalists, as well as standouts on the New Faces show at the prestigious Montreal “Just For Laughs” Comedy Festival.

They are firm believers in the legalization of marijuana.

Bret “The Hitman” Hart is their favorite person of all time.

Travon is currently a writer for The Daily Show with John Stewart, a contributing writer to The Urban Daily, and has been seen on such shows as Chelsea Lately, Tosh.0, Party Down, House, Southland, in various commercials and has been a featuring act for comedy mentor and friend Russell Peters on multiple occasions.
