I couldn't have asked for a better 90 minutes with the Kids!

Although we love their sketches and have seen them twice in San Francisco -- this was great!

Description

The Kids In the Hall (Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson) specialize in an irreverent, offbeat, sometimes dark, sometimes ridiculous brand of humor. Their sketch comedy television series aired new episodes on various networks from 1989 to 1994. The Kids take their name from a line comedian Jack Benny often used after telling a joke, “I got this one from the kids in the hall” — referring to aspiring joke writers who would hang around outside his office. Not long after forming in Toronto in 1984, Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels caught one of their shows and offered a television deal.

Over the course of the show’s run, the Kids were recognized numerous times with nominations for various awards, including an Emmy nomination in 1995. The Kids each went on to successful solo work, but reformed and released the film Kids In the Hall Brain Candy in 1995. They successfully toured in 2000 and 2003.
