We revisit every Kids in the Hall episode in a thinly veiled excuse for scattered friends to get girl drink drunk. Hosted by Kalyeena, Trevor, Hans, and Stu.
Today we're reviewing the 8th episode of the first season of The Kids in the Hall, which originally ran on December 19, 1989! CBC Episode link: https://watch.cbc.ca/media/kids-in-the-hall/season-1/episode-8/38e815a-009568f788c
The sketches in this episode are:
Ping Pong: Mark McKinney is an annoying spectator while the rest of the troupe plays rapid fire rounds of ping pong.
Pre-Vacation Family Blowout: Bruce McCulloch is an irate father anxious to get on the road to vacation, but his wife - Scott Thompson - is worried about son Dave Foley not coming home and assumes he must have spent the night in a crack house. Hilarity ensues.
Chain Gang: An upmarket food critic is recognised by two characters from his past - when he was a criminal tied to a chain gang
Nobody Likes Us: Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald are a couple of downers, responding to a declined loan application by hanging themselves outside the bankers house, but fail to even do that properly. How depressing!
Buddy Cole is back: and this time he’s using dinosaur metaphors to paint of a picture of the characters overtaking the gay bars.
Interracial Couple: Where we’re again haunted by the Kid’s use of blackface - this time to aid a joke about how a Dave Foley’s character Susan is convinced her parents are racist against her black boyfriend Scott Thompson - but she’s just insane. They’re actually really lovely.
