In recent entertainment news from around the triangle, we are lucky and proud to welcome our hilarious neighbors from the North, The Kids in the Hall, to the Durham Performing Arts Center May 8, 2015. As a child of television through the middle 1980's and 1990's, Bruce, Scott, Dave, Mark and Kevin and even the rare opportunity to imagine touching Paul Balinni provided me a wealth of playground and class clown fodder. Puerile classics like Mark McKinney's "I am crushing your head" was merely a first step or toe dip into the ocean of sheer brilliance of The Kids in the Hall. The Comedy Channel was in bloom and shows like Small Doses, Exit 57 and Almost Live shared airtime with The Kids and SNL reruns. We saw glimpses of Amy Sedaris, Steven Colbert, Strangers with Candy, the formation of The State on MTV, Stella, Viva Variety, and the list goes on.
How fortunate are we to have our funny uncles from the frozen north bring their traveling showcase of crossdressed comedic brilliance to our little triangle?
