That headline is in fact my favourite “Kids in the Hall” line ever; one of many I’m afraid. It never ceases to amaze me just how insidious their unique brand of comedy was (and is) on influencing even my own comic psyche. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t run out of my office screaming’ “My pen, my pen” to unwary ‘stylo’ stealing colleagues. Great news then that the Kids are about to embark on a North American Reunion Tour.
"The Kids in the Hall", the watershed comedy troupe of the 1990’s, are returning to their live performance roots for a major North American theater tour in 2008. The tour kicks off at the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville, IN on April 4, 2008 and will include approximately 30 cities in the US and Canada. Join The Kathies, Headcrusher, the Sales Guys, Buddy Cole, and people you’ve never met before (but somehow recognize from your everyday life) on an adventure into the bizarre and side-splittingly funny.
I saw them on their last "Tour of Duty" in 2002 and it was outstanding. Cue the Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet and go see these guys or, or, or… I’ll crush your head.
Tell me your favourite “Kids” line in the Comments section.
