"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. See more »
Every sketch is a classic. The Kids in the Hall were one of Canada's best comedy teams and probably one of the most popular right now. They continued to push CBC's limits of censorship, taking from where Codco had left off and pushing it further. Clever satire, sharp writing, great performances, and classic sketches. The Kids in the Hall took the strangeness of the people around us and made them into popular comedic mechanisms. A new chapter in great Canadian comedy.
