Bruce has a friend named Kevin

I discovered a gem on YouTube today, and it hides much deeper treasure. Bruce & friend Kevin: Live at the Rivoli! PART 1 [45m] is two Kids who come from The Hall doing a stage show. I don't know if Part 2 will be posted, but I hope so.

If you clicked through, the deeper treasure is Bruce McColloch's YouTube channel. I've linked here the Playlist page, which includes full playlists for every season of Kids In The Hall, including Death Comes To Town and also Brain Candy.

I should say, the playlists aren't necessarily in series order, although they do appear to contain all the episodes.

Brain Candy is one of my favoritest movies ever made.

Anyway, you're very welcome.

We're going to see Bruce McCulloch live next week here in town. I missed all of the KITH reunion tours due to being broke as a joke when those happened.

It's nice that Bruce has a friend with a different name to go with all the Daves

We saw this show at SF Sketchfest in the past - cool to see it's on YouTube. This year Kevin did a solo show (more songs!) and the troupe did two different live shows, one was sketches that never got finished (either cut by censors or by the rest of the kids).

Also, I recently enjoyed this Good Ones episode about their process.

Nice, will take a look! Bruce was always my fave. (And Dave.) I saw them live in San Fran but found if you're too far back, it's a loud crowd and I could barely hear them on stage.

I just finished reading Bruce's memoir Let's Start a Riot (highly recommend, there are some superb comedic one-liners throughout). Thank you for posting!

Fun to see this here!
Also on his YouTube playlist is his album Shame Based Man, about which I will never miss a self-linky, small-world-Toronto opportunity to mention that the woman in the Stalking track is Shannon, a neighbourhood friend who played violin on a song of mine called Olivia.

I made a pilgrimage to see this at the time — it was uproarious. The vaudeville section alone, where they both kept cracking each other up..!

Brucio’s solo show is also fantastic. At the start it was a little more risqué, and he’s setlled down into a groove over the run, but it’s superb craftsmanship and delivery. Simply the best.

(But how Scott’s ‘King’ can be made safe for mainstream consumption, I have no idea.)
