KIDS IN THE HALL
(Fri., July 21, 11:30 P.M. ET)
is not a children's show; the Kids in the Hall happens to be the
name of a comedy troupe that comes from Toronto. Its five members,
all between the ages of 23 and 32, have been given a weekly half-hour
series. If this week's opening episode is any indication, these
Kids are not going to end up being sent to their rooms. They're
going to be with us a long time. For the most part, the skits
and characters they present are hysterically funny, often irreverent
without being offensive. They all double, Python style, as female
characters, slipping in and out of drag with extraordinary ease.
These comic chameleons are Scott Thompson, Kevin McDonald, Mark
McKinney, Dave Foley and Bruce McCulloch. Can't wait for more.
