Actor/Comic Scott Thompson 11:00pm ET (Coliseum)
Six years as a member of the famed comedy group, KIDS IN THE HALL,
allowed Scott Thompson to bring his outlandish comedic powers
to bear in some of the funniest portrayals skit television has
ever seen. From his priceless portrayal of gay bar fly Buddy Cole
to his glowing parody of the Queen of England on the hit HBO series
(KIDS IN THE HALL), Scott proved that he's anything but your average
stand-up comic. With a feature film under his belt and an online
virtual world he can call his own (SCOTTLAND), Scott is the newest
regular cast member of the critically acclaimed HBO series, THE
LARRY SANDERS SHOW, where he's enjoyed good reviews and a chance
to continue developing his comedic skills.
Before catapulting to television, the World Wide Web, and the
big screen, Scott was a member of the Toronto comedy circuit,
the Love Cats. KIDS IN THE HALL, which aired on CBC and CBS after
a six-year run on HBO, now appears regularly on Comedy Central.
Scott reprises such classic characters as Buddy Cole and the Queen
of England on his virtual internet site, SCOTTLAND, where he and
his audience develop story lines for the characters.
