Brian's Bombshell

This is one of my favorites. Another of the 5 that truly show the Kids.
It's nearly a monologue. And in truth, no one does a monologue better than Mr. Scott Thompson. Not to say I don't love the other guys, but Scott has a special sparkle on his own. He knows he has the undivided attention of the audience and he uses it.

I know this was recently posted, but I can't leave it out. It's from the pilot, like Reg and it's a piece they did on stage frequently. Another thing Brian's Bombshell and Reg have in common, they both fell flat in bigger venues they performed at. Brian's Bombshell was performed in NYC at the height of the AIDS epidemic, and the boys had included a character called, The AIDS fairy, played by Kevin. It didn't go well.

When I got to thinking about the 5 clips to show The Kids In The Hall to someone this came up as well. The Kids themselves say this is one that represents them well, and I have to agree.

It starts off in one direction and does a swift change, which goes in a much darker, and beautifully morbid direction. It's easy to lose the shock of the piece now because every show does this. We're now waiting for the 'catch' in a sketch, and yes, many groups did it before The Kids, but I don't think there's a group out there who took it to such dark extremes like the Kids did. And that's why I love them.
To Reg!

If I had just 5 sketches to bring across who the Kids in the Hall were, this would be one of them.

Gotta love the face Bruce makes when he holds up the tiny cow.

Jazz Hater

I use to like jazz. When I was in high school I really enjoyed improve jazz, for hours. Now, it's strictly big band, and Kind of Blue. Apart from that, I'm done. Wonder where that love went. Maybe the way of Bruce.

Nobody Home

According to @ScottThompson_, Scott & Kevin were booed off stage? And had a shoe thrown at them... having seen the show I can't really figure out what they could have done.

And now for something completely different.

Can't get this one to embed, so click the link to see the Head Crusher & his girlfriend.
Clip of the day.

Manny Coon

Today one of my best friends, Joe left for UCLA. When I first had Joe watch KITH, this was the first, and possibly only sketch he really enjoyed. Seems about right.

All's Fair in Love

A good one to go to when you're trying to show people just how attractive Dave Foley can be as a woman. This or any one where he's a blonde.

The Real Buddy Holly

If I'd known today was Buddy Holly's 75th birthday I would have saved that clip for today. I'm a HUGE Buddy Holly fan, but know more about the music than the man.

But I'm going to post it again. Why not. And we'll throw in some extra stuff. :)

Big Gut Guys

Aaaaand I hate this sketch. But it shows the set. Well, I don't hate it, but it really grosses me out.

Fight Picker

I love how you can see what new sets the guys got each season by what the use. Like the court room, or this bar.
