The Brothers Brothers, both named Tom (after their uncle), are the most non-threatening African-American comedians. Like their namesakes the Smothers Brothers, their music and humor are as far away from ILC's audience as they can get. The word generally used to define them is "Oreo," meaning they're black on the outside but white on the inside. Their sketches begin and/or end with them singing an harmonious ditty about the sketch's subject.
"What's black and white all over?"
