THE SKLAR BROTHERS plus KESTRIN PANTERA'S 'DR. NO MEANS NO'

with Host Joe Winchell , Nancy Parker , Dr. No Means No and Kestrin Pantera

The Sklar Brothers, are a post-modern take on a stand up comedy duo. Neil Strauss of the New York Times once wrote “Their comedy accepts the reality of being twins but does not use it as a crutch. Instead, they work their physical and mental similarities and correspondences, their status as imperfect carbon copies of each other. In their comedy the straight man is often an echo.” They have released 6 critically acclaimed comedy albums, have had two Comedy Central Half Hour Presents specials, and currently have a one hour stand up special on Netflix, titled “What Are We Talking About” and another one hour special that premiered on the Starz Network in May of 2018 called “Hipster Ghosts”. Hipster Ghosts is still available on the Starz App or at starz.com.

Randy and Jason are also writers, directors and actors appearing in a wide variety of shows from Entourage to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia to Curb Your Enthusiasm to Better Call Saul. They are currently recurring characters, the Drs. Green, on TruTV’s Those Who Can’t. However, they are perhaps most well known for their show Cheap Seats, a cult hit that appeared on ESPN Classic for 77 episodes.

Their popular sports/comedy podcast View From the Cheap Seats is available on the Starburns Podcasting Network. Their hit podcast Dumb People Town with cohost Dan Van Kirk is currently being developed as a narrative animated show with Sony for You Tube Premium.

Most importantly, Randy and Jason are fathers and husbands living in Los Angeles. (not with each other — that would be weird.)

Nancy Parker

Dr. No Means No

DR. NO MEANS NO is a James-Bond inspired action-comedy short told from the POV of the Bond girls- and the begining of a bigger (future) story about female fellowship. Directed by Kestrin Pantera.

Starring Breeda Wool (UnREAL), JJ Nolan (Chicago Med), Emily Chang (The Vampire Diaries), Charlotte Ubben (Pretty Problems), Eugene Kim (Obliterated), Randy Sklar (What We Do in the Shadows), Jason Sklar (What We Do in the Shadows, Cool Benson (Obi-Wan Kenobi), and Alex Klein (Pain Hustlers)

While the titular agent himself may be the most notable name in the James Bond or 007franchise, there is another revolving door of characters that have grown to be just as much part of the lexicon as the secret agent. That would be the Bond girls — the titular spy’s romantic love interests and partners who vary from one film to the next and who get little (if any) praise at the end of the day. If you’ve ever wondered, “What does a Bond girl do when she’s not in the company of James Bond?” then Kestrin Pantera’s upcoming action comedy short, Dr. No Means No, is the movie for you.
