The Kids in the Hall

Who remembers them as fondly as I do? Watching old episodes again it's fun to see how well they've held up. There's no question that Scott Thompson was the funniest of all of them, though the "Buddy" monologues where he plays the sassy gay bartender are much less funny than I remembered. But what really hold up beautifully are the skits where he plays women, particularly Kathy (in the Kathy-Cathy secretaries skits) and Francesca Fiore, "B movie star!" The others were really excellent though. Dave Foley is one of the most brilliant comic underplayers ever, and his underplaying especially works well because all the others overplay so much (albeit hilariously). And I love when Bruce McCullogh is the idiot pop star "Tammy."
