Ballet Dancer

Great article from NPR about the Kids in the Hall today.

This little blurb made me smile.

As the extras reveal, Kids was a true democracy, albeit a contentious and messy one. All the members wrote material – for themselves and each other – and each filled a critical role in the Kids' comedic attack pattern: David Foley was the comedy scholar. Bruce McCullough, the nervy iconoclast. Mark McKinney, the character specialist. Scott Thompson, the theatrical wit.
It's the goofy Kevin McDonald, though, who comes across as the glue that held the company together. A naturally gifted clown, McDonald consistently elevated the others' material with his collaborative spirit and ace improv skills.

So a clip that features some of the natural genus of Kevin McDonald.
