Welcome to the latest ModLife category, in which we share fond memories of days gone by and the Stuff We Miss. This week we’re taking a look at the comedy that I used to love watching every single day after high school — The Kids in the Hall.
Cross-dressing secretaries? Keep reading!The Kids in the Hall is a Canadian sketch comedy troupe that formed in 1984 and had a 5-season long show that ran in the late 80s to early 90s. The incredible team of Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson made us laugh until it hurt with their unique combination of cross-dressing, social commentary, and (sometimes) the downright bizarre. Whenever I see it, I can’t help but think of all the afternoons I spent laughing with friends after school and wish that they were still making sketches!
If you haven’t discovered this show yet (or if you have and just want to reminisce with me), check out some of my all-time favorites sketches below. You can also buy all five seasons on DVD!
