The Sklar Brothers recently performed on the latest episode of America’s Got Talent. They are popular comedians and have appeared in various other shows.

Considering the stronghold of the Sklar Brothers in the entertainment industry, it came as no surprise that their recent appearance on AGT proved to be a hilarious one.

Their performance was about parenting an infant and and how it is similar to a pet owner who considers having a dog almost equal to raising a child. They asked:

“Is it? Cause if you can tie it up while you go have brunch, then it’s not a kid.”

Heidi Klum’s reaction was an indication that she did not enjoy the act much. But the other three judges were impressed and gave the thumbs up to the Sklar Brothers for the next round.
