If you're interested in the story of The Kids in the Hall the odds are pretty good that you are familiar with their classic television show. The author of this book goes on at length about the sketches that make up the episodes but not the stories behind them. It is not necessary to describe in detail the premise, and sometimes dialogue, of sketches that KITH fans have watched numerous times. There are interesting anecdotes throughout but overall it was a struggle to get through. I wish that what the author had written in the final chapter had been put in the first chapter so that I would have known that his writing style would not be for me. I didn't listen to this entire book just to have the last chapter mainly consist of the author's opinions on what is acceptable in comedy and that "punching up" is the new standard. I await the day for an unbiased KITH-tory.

A great insight into an archetypal network of minds, as well as the nature of the work they do. Brilliantly read with accentual tones to distinguish the Kids and their quotes, this title defines impeccable quality in content, context and delivery.
