I started to listen to it but I was on the Zone at the same time and couldn't keep up with both at the same time, I'll definately listen to it though.

Thanks Quint, great interview, I always love to see the KitH guys popping up here and there. Foley, in particular, is one of my favorites. I miss Newsradio, when it was in its prime that was a great show.

Fun interview Quint. You should email Mr. McDonald a personal invite to the Phantom Zone so he can tell us his dirty joke.

If you ask any of the Kids in the Hall, they will all tell you that Bruce McCulloch is the funniest. but i always felt it was Kevin Mac. My brother and i were just talking about the Kids in the Hall the other day. as i was listening to the "Brain Candy" soundtrack, i lamented aloud that i didnt think there would ever be another production by The Kids in the Hall as The Kids in the Hall. I think brain candy (although good imo) was something of a letdown for them both commercially as well as creatively. i know dave foley didnt want to do it when they did it, and it shows in the movie. damn shame, but i guess all good things shall pass.

Upstairs we are having a fabulous party, but we've run out of wine. So I am forced to borrow a bottle of yours. My God, it stinks in here! It stinks of stupid women wondering about Tony, wondering where he could be, who he is with, what he's thinking, whether he's thinking of you, and whether he'll ever return someday.

Sweet. I might have a chance to whet my appetite for the new series with Scott Thompson's one-man show, Scottastrophe, next month. But I have a feeling I'm going to be working the Ticket Office for it, so I'll have to dash in at the last second. Which kinda sucks. It feels like missing the trailers. I need time to decompress before a show. Nevertheless...

Strange. I smell a bit of sadness in this. They were ridiculous and fun when they were first on. They were hit or miss for me, but their energy and stupid playfulness was enough to get through the rough patches. Foley is the only one who broke into prime time (Thompson is a more minor breakout but is too weird for the mainstream). So it's sort of sad to see a non-reunion reunion. The article says it's not sketch. It's an eight episode narrative. Okay. They play all the characters. Okay. I'll watch. I'll probably appreciate it much like I appreciated Brain Candy. But is an eight episode narrative not a feature film broken up by commercials. Not a perfect comparison, but close. I loved Foley on Newsradio. Loved. It. And I know that Foley and Hartman were the brains behind it - rumors of on set re-writes while Andy Dick was... Andy DIcking. I have high hopes. And Canadian Comedy will always pave the way, even if it's a tired re-hash of something that was just funny enough 15 years ago. Or am I just crushing my own head?

It feels better if you crush your own head. I mean, why is this sad news? I liked the Kids and I'd like to see new stuff from them. I just hope they can maintain the youthful idiocy they had. One problem with comedians is that as they get older they start thinking they're too mature to be as silly as they were when they were young. Jim Carrey is on a losing streak now because he wants to be too serious. Robin Williams successfully made a career out of being serious and now can't successfully go back to being silly. And on and on.

Trailer for Kids In The Hall, Death Comes To Town

Looks a bit like The League of Gentlemen but seeing how that was certainly influenced by Kids I guess it's fair game.

He looks so sick in those pictures. Give him a light green makeup application and he'd be right out of Romero's Dawn of the Dead. Gotta appreciate the use of humor from him.

And that bit about the school shooting!?!? :shock: Holy shit!

Here's hoping the best for him.....

I just watched the first two episodes of this, it's definitely worth a watch and made me laugh a good few times but not as much as I'd hoped, still it's got a nice set up and seems to be building up to something so it's not just a series of sketches set in the same town which is what I thought it was going to be.

Check it out.

I might have to bite, for some KitH nostalgia type fix, although I was never really a fan per se, it'll be interesting to see if the humours gels with me more now.

Ah. I was surprised at how much Scott had aged, more than the others, since I saw him live last January and he seemed to have changed so much since then. If you ever get a chance to see one of his one-man shows, leap at it. Scottastrophe was gorgeous.

From Vulture:
Mark McKinney, Dave Foley, and Scott Thompson on Their New Kids in the Hall Miniseries
Joe DeLessio wrote:The Kids in the Hall haven’t regularly appeared together on American airwaves since their cult-favorite sketch show signed off in 1994. But at 10 p.m. tonight on IFC, they return with the first two episodes of a new eight-part miniseries, Death Comes to Town. It’s a comic murder-mystery very much in the classic Kids in the Hall style: Each of the five troupe members plays multiple characters — many of them, of course, female — in the Canadian town of Shuckton, Ontario, where the grim reaper has set up shop. Vulture spoke with three fifths of the troupe — Mark McKinney, Dave Foley, and Scott Thompson — about why they returned to television, how they’ve matured (or not matured) over the years, and about the two members of the troupe not present to defend themselves.

The Wrap September 29, 2017:
The Kids in the Hall’s Kevin McDonald Says Group is in Talks for New Miniseries
Carli Velocci wrote:Brace yourselves, Buddy Cole fans. The Kids in the Hall cofounder Kevin McDonald says the Canadian sketch comedy troupe may be making a return to television for the first time in nearly a decade.

“You’re the first guy to know this,” McDonald told News-Press.com. “Last night, before I got on the plane, we got a Kids in the Hall group message to all of us. Lorne Michaels wants us to do what ‘Mr. Show’ did, and do like six episodes of sketches for something like Netflix.”

McDonald was referring to “W/ Bob & David” a 2015 Netflix sketch comedy miniseries created by Bob Odenkirk and David Cross. While it wasn’t billed as as a revival of the duo’s influential 1990s HBO series “Mr. Show,” it featured much of the earlier show’s cast, writers, and subject matter.

McDonald emphasized that the talks are in very early stages, since it’s tough to get all five members together at once. “It’s so at the beginning, we’re not able to even get conference calls together. There’s always one or two of us that are kind of busy. And because we are who we are, there’s always one of us against it,” he said.

“But,” McDonald said, “I think, right now, there’s no one against it… And I’ll try to get it going, because I’m the one who’s supposed to get it going… It’s super exciting!”

Broadway Video, Michaels’ production company, didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Founded in 1984 by Dave Foley, Mark McKinney, Bruce McCullough, Scott Thompson, and McDonald, The Kids in the Hall became known through their self-titled TV show that ran from 1989-1995 and was produced by Lorne Michaels. The group has reunited several times over the years, first with the 1996 cult film “Brain Candy,” and most recently with the 2010 eight-part miniseries “Death Comes to Town.”

The group is best known for characters like the “head crusher,” “Buddy Cole,” and the “Chicken Lady,” as well as topical humor about issues like stalking, and LGBT rights.
