When it comes to sketch comedy, the Kids in the Hall are legends. It all started in Toronto, circa 1983. When Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, Bruce McCulloch, and Scott Thompson joined forces, they mixed quirky, weird and outrageous all in one, and pushed the envelope the entire time.
Within five years, Lorne Michaels of 'Saturday Night Live' put them on television, and the cult following began. 'The Kids in the Hall' ran for six seasons, on the CBC in Canada, and HBO and CBS in the United States. By the mid-Nineties, the 'Kids' ended their TV run, made the feature film 'Brain Candy' and headed off to the States for other projects.
By 2007, the guys reunited at Montreal's 'Just For Laughs' festival and toured across North America. Now, they're back where it all began. Coming together for a new eight part 'murder mystery' series on CBC, it's called 'Death Comes to Town'.
