"The Kids in the Hall" are a sketch comedy troupe, set apart by their cross-dressing antics and seemingly infinite supply of unique characters. Although writer Paul Bellini, various extras, and sometimes even an actual woman appear in the sketches, for the most part, the five main cast members portray every single character themselves. Recurring characters range from the harried corporate executive Danny Husk to Queen Elizabeth, from alienated teen rocker Bobby Tarrance to gay bar owner Buddy Cole, from occult TV show host Simon and his sidekick Hecubus to the gossiping corporate secretaries Cathy and Kathy, and an endless parade of others.

Kurt Cobain, the late lead singer of Nirvana, was a big "Kids in the Hall" fan and good friends with Scott Thompson. Following his death, his Seattle managers sent Scott a picture of Kurt when he was seven years old. Scott, as Buddy Cole, burned this picture on the final episode of "Kids in the Hall", during the "Buddy's Bar Closes" sketch. See more »

During the credits for the last episode, two business men bury the troupe in a grave marked "Kids In The Hall, The TV Show 1989-1995." After, Bellini's music plays and he dances on their grave. It's the Oompah Band music from Daryl's Just-listening-to-the-Band sketch. See more »
1,000 words is not nearly enough to express my complete, total, and utter love and devotion for TKITH.
I started watching this show on HBO in 1988, when I was 8 years old. I would tune in an hour before my bedtime, and literally laugh my ass off. I really don't think my parents had a clue what I was watching, and thank God. This show was a huge part of my childhood, and shaped my entire view of comedy, and what is truly funny. I was never a Monty Python person. Prime time TV sucked, and made me sick to my stomach most of the time. Later on, The State and Mr. Show came close, but never achieved the absolute comedic excellence of these 5 guys.
Besides giving me hours of enjoyment, I really feel this show shaped me to be a better person in so many ways. Growing up in the burbs I had very little exposure to the true stuff of life: alternative lifestyles, class warfare, and the complete ridiculousness of pop culture. If not for this show, I may have become yet another brick in the wall of socially accepted behavior. The Kids taught me it was OK to be weird - that I didn't need to like what everyone else liked. When I first met a gay person, I didn't blink. When I got my first office job, all I could see were the businessman sketches. This show gave me a very unique perspective with which to frame reality, and I'll be forever grateful.
I guess this is a pretty serious review about a comedy show, but what the hell. I frigging love these guys.
