Twins Kenny and Keith Lucas perform stand-up that uses methodical, low-key delivery to slowly draw the audience into surreal mind games. Like the Sklar Brothers (yes, yes, I'll try to keep these comparisons to a minimum), the Lucas Brothers often seem to speak in one voice that pans fluidly back and forth, but with more of an emphasis on slowness and pauses. The whole "stoner comedy" shorthand about the Lucases really doesn't do justice to the range of the Lucas' material. Their recent Netflix special On Drugs tackles the politics of the war on drugs (large cardboard cutouts of Richard Nixon bowling share the stage) and the legacy of mass incarceration, all while threading in material about bizarre pop-culture minutiae and the foibles of being twins. —Scott Gordon
