Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and
Scott Thompson are Kids in the Hall.
Many people consider KITH the funniest sketch comedy show ever to appear on TV and Film. The other half are fans of the absurdist genius of Monty Python etc.
The Kids mixed that absurdist humour with irony.
The winner is us – the audience.
KITH are “older”!
The youngest kid is 59-year-old Dave Foley.
However, what keeps them funny and relevant is the high wire that they walk.
The Kids embrace risk and even make fun of that possible failure waiting to happen.
One of the things we talk about in this Zoom Interview is how lucky they were to not only find each but discover that they all viewed the planet and the people on it as flawed and great subjects for funny. Why are they so good? Well, they’ve been making us laugh – at ourselves – since 1984.
After 27 years of No Kids. No Hall. They’re back with a series on Prime Video/Amazon and a fascinating documentary “Kids in the Hall: Comedy Punks”
