Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

Friend of mine got to perform with Kevin recently. Kevin likes Chapel Hill/Carrboro, so he performs here pretty frequently.

I'd put it Bruce>Kevin>Dave>Scott>Mark

None of them are unfunny, mind you.
Intellectually (if that's the right word), yes, I go with Bruce. Kevin's appeal is being that awkward, wounded soul. I can't help but identify. Those two are clearly my favourites. And, as you say, none are unfunny, but the other three aren't as off kilter for my tastes.
Endut! Hoch Hech!

Scott's my favorite. Dunno why.

Mark's best work is Slings and Arrows I think.

When KitH premiered, they, of course, did a shit-ton of promo and interviews. I remember Scott explaining that he was the last to join and that there was initial reluctance. He said it was because they had a problem with him being gay; they replied, No, we just didn't think you were very funny.

He's an exceptional straight man (ironically, so to speak). And he plays an absolutely perfect dopey blue-collar Canadian. For example:

Scott's two greatest moments are Manny Coon and "Just got feet. Don't got shoes."

Manny Coon is pure joy.

edit: I've never watched it, but Bruce is in a sitcom he created called Young Drunk Punk.

Somehow their official twitter feed started following me, probably because I mentioned Bruce. I don't think non-canadians have access, but I never bothered to test that theory.

Tom Kenny's Brooklyn Lincoln is the definitive take on the man. I have, on occasion, responded to people by saying, "Lunacy!" and it's always while trying to imitate Kenny's Lincoln.
