KITH Behind the Scenes - Part Five


(The following post was originally presented in April, 1994, and resulted from a Toronto trip to see a taping of the Kids in the Hall's final season. Except for formatting, this post is being presented as it originally was - punctuation and spelling errors included. Enjoy this TARDIS-free journey into my past...)

CHAPTER 5 -- 4/2/94 SKETCHES

Same deal as last note, only I don't have the sketch names.
Also, they focus the cameras on the audience before each
show--sometimes they're used in the transitions. Look for a
guy holding up a sign which says JOHN 3:16--that's me.

1) Film--Dave plays a person who was a test tube baby.

OPENING

2) The Chicken Lady (Mark) wants to ride a mechanical horsey in a mall which figures prominently in many skits

3) Film--Scott plays a gangster who hires Dave, a hit man, for a job. I won't give away the surprise ending, but it features two other Kids

BB

4) Scott and Kevin play two old ladies who discuss a non-traditional couple's slaughtering by an axe murderer (Scott flubbed a line, and Kevin countered by doing a really funny goofy voice)

5) Film--the Tea Man (Kevin) sees a doctor (Mark),and...well, you gotta see it for Dave's role.

6) Bruce plays a man who asks his wife (Kevin) about buying a chess set, and they consult her father (Dave) in a diner.(There were a lot of flubs--Kevin Jumped around in the beginning, saying "there's a cramp in my foot", Bruce flubbed a line, responding "There's a cramp in my brain" and Dave flubbed a line, saying "We're not the real Kids in the Hall--we chloroformed them and took over their roles).
