The Kids in the Hall: An Appreciation

From 1988 to 1994 Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney, Kevin McDonald and Scott Thompson took to the airwaves with subversive and edgy sketch comedy.

What started in the late 80's as several separate Canadian improv troops grew and merged over time to form the core group of actors and writers that became The Kids in the Hall.

Cross dressing, queer commentary, secretaries, SNAGs, skanks, Sausages!, Queen Elizabeth II, a chicken lady and a guy who wants to crush your head are only part of the surreal swirl and quirky delight that obsessed fans still chatter about to this day.

Bask in the pouty glory of Bruce McCulloch's Tammy, who won't spread for no roses:

And of course, Scott Thompson in the story of my life in one minute and twenty six seconds:

The entire series can be purchased (or netflixed) on DVD with commentary and behind the scenes extras to fill the gaping void left in our lives when the show went off the air in 1994.

Go now, seek out The Kids.


  1. Is it wrong of me that I found Tammy and her video kinda hot?

    And you do need a bear costume. :)

  2. So you think I should leap into the realm of furbies?

    Tammy is totally hot!


Comments welcome, but if you're going to be a jerk, I'll delete your ass.
