The stand-up comedy of New York-based identical twins – and television newcomers – Kenny and Keith Lucas (The Lucas Brothers) gets animated in Lucas Bros. Moving Co. With the help of the people of Greenpoint, the twins run a moving company called Lucas Bros. Moving Co. Their customers are often apprehensive to hire such a scrawny duo, but the brothers like to remind them that that’s why God made two of them. A day that begins simply by moving a bed down the street may lead to the threat of city-wide catastrophe, resolved only with the help of a once-famous ’90s wrestler. No matter what happens around them, Kenny and Keith always remain totally, bizarrely unfazed. Lucas Bros. Moving Co. is created, written and executive-produced by Kenny and Keith Lucas.
In Golan the Insatiable, a fearsome godlord from an alternate dimension is trapped in the small town of Oak Grove, where his only friend is a macabre little girl named Dylan (comedian Mary Mack). Together they fight the boredom of suburban life. Golan (voice of series creator Josh Miller) is Dylan’s ideal playmate and she constantly urges him to destroy and wreak havoc on the town that makes her so miserable. Golan the Insatiable is created by television newcomer Miller, and developed for television by Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser. Miller, Silverstein and Jeser serve as executive producers.
Additional animation, including digital shorts, topical GIFs, comedy sketches and other exclusive material, is now available on adhdfox.com, the official website of ADHD.
