The Kids are back in town
By Michael O'Connell, Special to Metromix
The Canadian equivalent of Monty Python, the Kids in the Hall have remained an active comedy troupe for the better part of the last 20 years. But unless you were paying particularly close attention, you probably haven't seen them much since their self-titled sketch comedy series ended in 1995.
But you have seen them. Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, Scott Thompson and even director Kelly Markin have been fixtures of the tube and the big screen on their own. And now that they're reuniting this August for the eight-part miniseries "Death Comes to Town," it's time to see what exactly they've been up to. Besides crushing your head.
"The Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town" premieres Friday, August 20, at 10 p.m. on IFC.
