FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Kids in the Hall Comes to The Wilbur
WHAT: On Wednesday, May 6th, 2015, Kids in the Hall is coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.
Six long years of waiting are over: The Kids in the Hall are finally ready to get back on their tour bus and hit the road, bringing their seminal, take-no-prisoners comedy to stages in cities both north and south of the US/Canadian border from late April through June, 2015.
Years before YouTube offered audiences a peek into the absurd and bizarre behavior of the average human being, The Kids in the Hall were busy doing it all by themselves on their long-running, landmark HBO comedy series. “KITH”, the groundbreaking five-man sketch comedy troupe discovered by SNL’s Lorne Michaels in the late 1980s, took their blockbuster live shows from the packed performance spaces in and around Toronto, Canada and brought it right into the living rooms of an American audience desperate for hilarious, edgy, timeless, REAL takes on who we are and what we think when we’re not trying to be polite. No subject is too sacred; no corner of the human experience is too strange or too scary to hide from the harsh but blisteringly funny comments KITH have to make on them.
All five of the original cast members – Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson – have gone on to achieve individual fame through a variety of solo work in both television and film, but the troupe reunite to bring their unique brand of humor to stage and screen whenever their busy schedules allow. The 2015 tour marks the first such opportunity since 2010’s “Death Comes to Town”, their critically-acclaimed eight-part miniseries, which aired on IFC in the US and on CBC in Canada.
KITH Tour 2015 will feature both characters well-known and loved by fans of their HBO show and entirely new material those fans will embrace just as fiercely.
Cities, venues, and dates below. Ticket on-sale information will be released as it becomes available.
