“The McElroy Brothers have launched their penchant for antics into wildly successful careers in show business,” said Ed Cambron, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. “Our Cultural Campus challenges the borders of ‘art’, bringing comedy and speakers to the stage regularly.
