the artvoice interview with mark is linked on their page - i don't recall seeing it on there before, so, there you go. or perhaps i have swiss cheese head. yeah, perhaps. (i was going to grab a bunch of these, but the new issues came out on thursday, the day of the show. dagnabbit. well i still have some from 2 years ago in my closet..)
Addendum to the Time Out New York announcement below, also in this weeks issue, Billie Cohen, the KITH fan who works at that magazine panned the documentary in the DVD Reviews section. I've transcribed it below:
Same Guys, New Dresses
Dir. Dave Foley. 2001. N/R. 105 mins. VSC. Available Tue 16 on VHS ($14.98). Dave Foley, Scott THompson, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney.
Even devoted fans of the Kid in the Hall will have trouble sitting through this rambling documentary, which trails the sketch-comedy troupe on last year's "Same Guys, New Dresses" tour. Apart from a few highlights-- includings skits from the live show, a hilarious impromptu visit to "Late Night with Conan O'Brien"m and a handful of scenes that reveal the competition and bickering that defines the group's dynamics-- the film is drawn out into protracted segments about makeup application, lost luggage and Scott Thompson getting whiny over a robot dog he can't train. One would have expected more from the quintet that et the standard for sketch comedy in the 90's. Unless this is a joke, too. (For the latest on the Kids, see also Takeout.) --Billie Cohen.
As always, many gracious thanks to sarah for the (as always) tremendously impressive work she's done making the blogpage look so stunning. Honest to god, if this woman doesn't get a high-paying job as a web designer, there is no justice in this world.
This may only be for the most obscurely overdedicated feaks among us, but in the current issue of CineAction (a Canadian film magazine but I found it in Borders in the US), there's an article about John Paizs, one of the directors of the short films in the tv series. As one of the directors to come out of the (highly esteemed) Winnipeg Film Group, he's had less press than he deserves. There's a brief mention of KITH in the article.
many of you have probably already seen these (?) but i'm just in a photo-looking mood (other people's and my own) and there is a great collection here at Al's Kids in the Hall Page, from the 2000 tour. it can't not make you smile and laugh.
this is a weblog devoted to comedy troupe kids in the hall. are you a KITH fan? tend to be good at finding things of notifiable content? want to join? drop me an email! (it may take a while, but i'll get to it)
