After more than 20 years of stand-up comedy, identical twins Randy Sklar and Jason Sklar are ready to explore what lies beyond the stage in the places they perform.

In a new pilot with the Travel Channel, the brothers explore Raleigh and observe the area's idiosyncrasies. Each day they will construct stand-up material based on their observations and share it with a local audience. 

Host Frank Stasio talks with Randy and Jason Sklar about their journey in stand-up and filtering a city's identity through comedy.

The Sklar Brothers perform at Goodnight's Comedy Club in Raleigh on Thursday, Feb. 25 at 8 p.m., Friday, Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Charlie Shelton-Ormond is a podcast producer for WUNC.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
