The Kids in The Hall, the greatest comedy troupe to ever walk the Earth, have returned with an all new series called Death Comes to Town. The series is currently on IFC in the US. Death Comes to Town is a Twin Peaks-esque murder mystery with the Kids playing almost all of the characters. It is an absurdist comedy with a cliffhanger plot that keeps you dying to know what will happen next.
Death Comes to Town is not the first reunion of The Kids in The Hall to happen over the years. In addition to their live tours, the Kids have worked together in various combinations on a few projects that some might not be aware of.
Mark, Bruce, and Kevin reunited in the movie Unaccompanied Minors, playing security guards together.
Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald have another new comedy series on the way as well, called Big in the 80′s, which looks hilarious. There is no word yet on the release date, so in the meantime, here are some clips of the two of them hosting and performing at a live music festival.
There are a lot of Kids in the Hall group interviews and talk show appearances out there as well.
One thing I learned while researching for this article is that there are a significant amount of The Kids’ sketches (like this one) that were not shown on American television (at least not in the Comedy Central reruns). I am not aware of any list of what sketches were or were not aired, so I highly recommend checking through YouTube and Hulu to see if there are any you might have missed.
In celebration of their new series, I have obsessively collected every piece of Kids in the Hall info available online and listed it below.
