The Sklar Brothers honor their musical hero, REO Speedwagon. (3:53)

RANDY>> SO, WE'D LIKE TO TALK

ABOUT AN ISSUE THAT'S VERY

IMPORTANT TO THE TWO OF US,

BUT WE FEEL THAT IT DOESN'T GET

A LOT OF COVERAGE.

WE'RE GLAD YOU GUYS ARE HERE

AND THAT PEOPLE ARE SEEING THIS.

HERE IS THE ISSUE.

IT SEEMS THAT GAY MEN THROUGHOUT

THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY HAVE

MADE A COMMON PRACTICE OF

HONORING THEIR FAVORITE FEMALE

MUSICAL ARTIST THROUGH THE ART

OF IMPERSONATION.

AND THEY CALL THIS CABARET.

JASON>> HERE'S THE PROBLEM.

WHEN GAY MEN DO THIS, IT'S COOL.

IT'S FINE.

IT'S ACCEPTED.

BUT, WHEN STRAIGHT MEN LIKE

RANDY AND MYSELF TRY TO DO THE

SAME THING.

IT'S JUST GAY.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING.

RANDY>> WELL, TONIGHT,

WITH YOUR ENERGY, AND OUR ENERGY

AND WHAT WE LIKE TO CALL A

SYNERGY OF OUR ENERGIES,

JASON>> GOOD WORD.

RANDY>> WE WOULD LIKE TO INSPIRE

STRAIGHT MEN EVERYWHERE

TO "COME OUT" AND HONOR THEIR

OWN MUSICAL HEROES THROUGH THEIR

OWN FORM OF CABARET.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON

TELEVISION FOR THE FIRST TIME

EVER ON A STAGE, WE OFFER FOR

YOU THE FIRST EVER STRAIGHT MEN

CABARET.

JASON>> CAN WE QUE THE MUSIC

IN THE BACK, PLEASE?

♪ (MUSIC PLAYING)

ALL RIGHT, WE'VE CHOSEN...

WE'VE CHOSEN R.E.O. SPEEDWAGON'S

"ROLL WITH THE CHANGES".

R.E.O. SPEEDWAGON A MOUTHPIECE

FOR STRAIGHT MEN EVERYWHERE.

THAT'S RIGHT I'M WEARING A

DOUBLE BANDANA,

VERY CHARLES IN CHARGE.

VERY SCOTT BAIO.

RANDY>> REMEMBER THE TUCK AND

ROLL FROM 1982.

WHO DIDN'T DO THE TUCK AND ROLL

FROM '82?

(AUDIENCE CHEERS)

IF WE ONLY HAD SOME SAFETY PINS

WE'D PEG THAT SUCKER RIGHT

THERE.

THE SLEEVELESS SHIRT COMES BACK

FROM NEW JERSEY.

LOOK AT THAT SHOULDER HAIR.

ALL RIGHT, HERE WE GO EVERYBODY.

BAR NEXT DOOR IF YOU NEED US.
