How comedy taught the Lucas Brothers to overcome their PTSD

(Lindsey Byrnes)

Listen 14:59

Keith and Kenny Lucas are a lot alike.

Maybe that's understating it. They're not just alike, they're identical twins, and they're the comedians comprising the Lucas Brothers duo.

The Lucas Brothers talk to q host Tom Power about why they use comedy to examine the American judicial system, and explain how it impacted their lives: their father spent much of their childhood in jail as a result of Richard Nixon's war on drugs.

The comedy duo are in Toronto for for JFL42, which runs until Sept. 30. See the schedule here.
