'The Kids In The Hall' Will Be Performing Live At Ace Hotel
Thirty Helens agree that it's pretty exciting news that the cast from The Kids in the Hall will be performing live at the Theatre at Ace Hotel on June 2. Tickets for the show go on sale today at noon.
The old Canadian gang is back together, and that means Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson will be gracing live audiences with their ridiculous and zany sketch comedy. Hopefully they'll bring back some of our favorite characters like the Chicken Lady and Gavin. (Here's a list of some of their best sketches in case you need a refresher.)
The Kids In The Hall was a success both in Canada and the U.S. from the late '80s to the early '90s, leading to the release of their 1996 feature film, Brain Candy. The guys have been going in and out of solo and comedy troupe projects since then throughout the years. This is their first major tour through Canada and the U.S. since 2008.
Just for old time's sake, remember the show's theme song performed by Shadowy Men On a Shadowy Planet?
Tickets, which are priced at $49.50, go on sale at noon today here. The show will take place on June 2 at 8 p.m. at the Theatre at Ace Hotel located at 929 South Broadway, DTLA, (213) 623-3233.
