Art Nerd New York | Los Angeles

Kids in the Hall Live at the Theatre at Ace Hotel 6/2!

Dear Fans/friends/frenemies…You know, we can’t be serious artnerds all the time — occasionally we need to mix it up here with some laughs, comedy, and music! I mean….have you seen GIRLS or Portlandia? Did you know Maron’s dating Sarah Cain? WTF! Comedy and art are having a special zeitgeisty moment and the KITH reuniting for a show at the Ace is apropos. ***Very special thanks to Goldenvoice for all the upcoming Art Nerd LA ticket giveaways <3 KITH_TwitPic

Kids in the Hall

Kids in the Hall used to make us laugh til we wept with joy, back when we were babes in Cross Colours with fake Canadian accents. Now the whole gang’s back together — Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson — and they’ll be live at The Theatre at Ace Hotel on June 2 for an evening of side-splitting satire.

A five-man sketch comedy troupe, “KITH” was formed in 1984 when members Foley and McDonald joined forces with members McCulloch and McKinney. Prior to joining “KITH”, McCulloch and McKinney had been performing sketch comedy as part of the Loose Moose Theater Company and with a troupe called “The Audience” in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. McCulloch and McKinney moved to Toronto in 1984 and joined Foley and McDonald in “KITH”, and the troupe performed at various comedy venues throughout the greater Toronto area (most notably, a venue called The Rivoli) for several years. Thompson, a university theater student, later joined the troupe after having been a member of the audience for several of their earliest performances.

“Saturday Night Live” producer/creator Lorne Michaels frequently visited Canadian comedy clubs while scouting for new talent to add to “SNL”’s ever-changing roster of performers. On the recommendation of Pam Thomas, wife of “SCTV”’s Dave Thomas, Michaels attended a “KITH” performance during one such scouting visit. He initially asked McCulloch and McKinney to join him in New York as writers for “SNL”, but shortly thereafter determined that “KITH” worked best as a troupe.
