As we count down the days until the Kids in the Hall eight-part mini-series Death Comes to Town, which starts on Friday at 10 (yippeee!!), we will be simultaneously counting down The Top Ten Best Kids in the Hall Sketches of All Time. (Once again: Yippee!!) How did we dare to choose just TEN of the multitude of hilariously awesome sketches created over the long and fruitful career of the Kids in the Hall? Truthfully, WE didn’t. Nope, the Kids themselves picked their favorites. We will present two a day this entire week as we wait for the Kids’ triumphant return to television.
First up, Dr.Seuss Bible. This re-telling of the Passion of Christ told in the style of Theodore Geisel is legendary for being the sketch they couldn’t show in America.
In Reg, the Kids gather around the fire to toast a fallen friend, but things take a macabre turn when the details surface on how exactly the friend fell.
Come back tomorrow for the next installment of The Top Ten Best Kids in the Hall Sketches of All Time. Then tune in Friday for Death Comes to Town. It airs on IFC at 10.
