Frick and Frack

Two inseparable and indistinguishable companions. Frick and Frack was a Swiss comedy ice skating duo who appeared in the original Ice Follies, starring in the late 1930s show as comedy ice skaters. Dressed in identical alpine lederhosen, they astonished audiences with extraordinary feats of athleticism. Thereafter, any two guys who palled around together, especially if they were of the same build, were called “Frick and Frack.” And since enough such pairs were considered cutups, “Frick and Frack” also came to mean two jokesters, the way a trio of town clowns was the Three Stooges.
