ctnow.com - TV AND RADIO: "Until the 'Last Comic Standing' returns as a series this summer, a good replacement is the Canadian-made 'The Next Big Thing' (Biography, 8 p.m.), a three-part documentary that begins tonight and runs nightly through Wednesday.
The idea is to follow a half-dozen stand-up comic hopefuls in Canada and find out how they do. Not only are the personalities interesting and the stand-up material strong, the series isn't shy about sharing the shows that don't go over so well. Among the comics is one that may already be familiar - Shaun Majumder, who was a second banana on 'Cedric the Entertainer Presents.' More drama is provided in that two of the competing comics, Dave Martin and Kristeen von Hagen, live together - for a while.
Dave Foley makes an appearance at one competition, which makes sense since the digital cable channel is also bringing his 'News Radio' (Biography, 7 p.m.) back for reruns."
We recently heard-- from Scott Thompson's own mouth-- that they're already planning to release the second season of Kids in the Hall on DVD! This is VERY good news, and impressive-- it's based on the internet pre-sale alone. Season One hasn't even hit stores yet!
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)
