Hit-and-Miss Comedy From The Makers of Kids In The Hall
26 May 2000 | by Spikey-2See all my reviews

It was like Lorne Michaels was trying for a second stab at "Kids In The Hall"s success. This short-lived Canadian series (featuring KITH's Mark McKinney's younger lookalike brother Nick) was perhaps a little *too* much like its predecessor to have solo success. Sketches were very much hit and miss, although some comic gems shone through. Some were too bizarre or too lengthy but high production values and excellent comic performaces made every episode watchable. The original songs featured throughout episodes were especially good.

Where are they now? Well, Paul Greenberg is often spotted in bit parts (most notably "As Good As It Gets" as a waiter), Nick McKinney writes for Michael Moore's series "The Awful Truth", Vito Viscomi is script editor for MTV's "Tom Green Show" and Rob Gfroerer wrote and appeared with Vito Viscomi and Paul Greenberg in the dire "Jenny McCarthy Show" on MTV.

If it ever resurfaces, check it out. It's worth at least half an hour of your time if you are a KITH fan.
