Drunk on National Fame

There's nothing quite as unsettling as a pair of nuts in a pink thong. Well, nothing except two pairs of nuts in two pink thongs. Miami comedy duo, A Pair of Nuts, bravely showed America their man parts while appearing on VH1's Money Hungry. The sketch duo -- Yamil Piedra and Johnny Trabanco -- traffic in humor that smells distinctly of Dade County. It's loose, unpretentious, smart, and most importantly, it's goofy. Miami folks know not to take themselves too seriously, but, at the same time, not be too stupid about it. A Pair of Nuts are bringing this kind of funny to the nation. Deez nuts will perform at Area Stage tomorrow and Saturday to celebrate a successful year of national TV appearances: MegaTV, El Vacilon (where they claim they had "the opportunity to introduce the Spanish audience to something they've never seen ... funny."), and Comedy Central's Tosh.0.
