Comedy duo the Lucas Brothers on 'survivor's guilt'

Clip: 12/21/2018 | 6m 1s

The Lucas Brothers are an identical twin comedy duo raised in the inner city of Newark, New Jersey. Keith and Kenny both graduated from college and began law school before deciding to pursue comedy. Now in their 30s, the brothers use deadpan humor to critique American economic and racial inequality. Paul Solman talks to them about "generational poverty" and how they're surprised to still be alive.
