"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.Written by

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 »
This is my favorite show of all time. And since Kids in the Hall fans are ruthlessly compelled to quote at random, I'll keep this short ^_^
These are five Canadian guys, extremely talented at comedic timing and accents, cross-dressing on occasion and nailing the art of black humor on the head. And if you compare them to Monty Python, I'm gonna bite your head off. The Kids and the Hall completely hold their own.
Now that this show is practiclly off the air, (Comedy Central moved their time slot to 3 am... like we NEED more SNL reruns...) there's nothing good on TV anymore. Except News Radio. Because at least that has Dave Foley, and it's kind of like watching Kids in the Hall. But not really.
So if you havn't seen it, give this show a chance... it's endlessly addictive and entertaining ^_^
(I went thru a whole post about Kids in the Hall without quoting!! Marvel at my self-control!)
