It’s been 20 years since the final episode of Kids in the Hall aired on TV and 30 years since the Canadian sketch comedy troupe first started touring together. They haven’t toured in more than six years, so we have to ask – will the humor still hold up? Will it still be funny when we hear a daddy tell his son, “All right now, son, I want you to get a good night’s rest. But remember, I could murder you when you sleep,” or when the Chicken Lady sings about eating her gravel and grubs, gravel and grubs? Everybody in the comedy troupe, best known for creating batshit insane characters like the Chicken Lady, the headcrusher Mr. Tyzik and the Axe Murderer, is a little older, grayer and balder. But that probably just makes them older, grayer and funnier, we’re thinking (more years to get more weird, right?). Plus, we are also older, balder and grayer, so maybe that makes us an easier crowd to please. Goddamn bastard brine!
