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

Good gravy, I think you're right.
Side note: for years, I completely forgot about this sketch, but I often would randomly say "Bel Biv Devoe" in that voice, wondering where I picked it up from.

Ha! That's what did it for me. "Bel Biv Devoe" was what popped in my brain and that's what I used in my googling (that and kids in the hall, of course).

Interview with Kevin from KitH: http://www.avclub.com/article/kids-hall ... k-d-242228

I'd love to have a few drinks with him and just listen.

No one has ever accused me of being Canadian, but I've always loved "Screw You, Taxpayer."

Bavarian cream pie joke.
I love that joke—rather, the telling—so much. Larry Miller is superb.

Agreed. His five stages of drinking is great too.

Certainly not elite Mr. Show, but it works well enough as parody of all those 1980s summer camp shows. Silly more than anything else.

It's a personal favorite just for the incredible gear shift between the two parts and the fact that the parody is so weirdly spot on.

Curiosity: Did an old Canadian comedy duo called Wayne and Shuster ever make it into American (or even Limey) consciousness? They were active from the 40s to the 80s, so I don't expect any of the younglings to know them, but I'm curious about the arthritic crowd here. I loved 'em as a kid in the 70s, but their schtick—and it was schtick—hasn't aged well for me. (Frank Shuster, btw, was a cousin of Joe Shuster.)

Also -- Rosie Shuster (important player in early SNL/Lorne Michael's ex-wife) was Frank Shuster's daughter.

Huh—didn't know that one. As I understand it, Wayne and Shuster hold the record for most appearances on Ed Sullivan, so really old Americans would know who they were.
