Satirical newscaster Stephen Colbert provides humorous commentary on the big issues going on in the United States and the rest of the world, with his larger-than-life ego and overly-patriotic spirit along with him every step of the way.
"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.

According to the audio commentary on the DVD set, the "Daddy Drank" sketch was indeed based on Kevin McDonald's father. Only the scene involving the tap shoes was made up. See more »
I know it's a clichÈ, but my favorite album of all time is still "Sgt. Pepper's."
"Sgt. Pepper's"? What's that?
Only the Beatles' most famous album!
I'm sorry, the Beatles? Who are they?
The best group of the sixties!
Oh, the sixties. I didn't hear much music in the sixties.
What are you talking about?

These guys are so funny! I have to admit that this series really grew on me. Sure, it's wild, zany and out of control, but that's its major charm!! You've got five guys who deal with pretty much everything: family, relationships, sex, the business world, media, homosexuality, death and so much more. Plus, not to mention that their characters are REALLY characters! Some you can relate to while others you just laugh your head off! While common favorites include Head Crusher, Buddy Cole, Gavin, I am amazed by others like the Flying Pig, JERRY SIZZLER!!, Tucker, Cabbagehead, Whores, Kathy & Cathy, Cops, Sir Simon and Hecubus, Bellini, Mississippi Gary and so much more (I could go on for days). Ah, what the hell, they're all awesome!! By the way, the guys play great women and damn Dave for looking good in drag!
True, KITH may not be for everyone which makes it such a cult classic! If you aren't easily offended, are not frightened by the powers of darkness, the hounds of hell, and the puppies of purgatory, then this is the show to watch....In the darkness. In the silence. In the sadness. In the blackness. It's shown on Comedy Central and hopefully (lick a lobster) will be released on DVD.
Well, the time has come for me to mount my donkey and leave for you are beginning to bore my clearly deranged mind. Ta Ta!
