The Kids in the Hall is a Canadian comedy sketch that aired for seven years from 1988 to 1995. Very much similar to Saturday Night Live, this series was all about humour and wittiness tucked within the daily routines of human life. It was received well by the viewers for its quirkiness and great comical timing. After the show ended its successful run, the kids came back with a movie a year later called “Brain Candy” which featured a few characters from the show and a few new ones. However, after almost thirty years, The Kids in the Hall is all set to return with its revival season on Amazon Prime Video. But when is it releasing? Read more to find out!

The Kids In The Hall Season 2 Story
Unlike other Comedy TV Shows, The Kids In The Hall does not have a plot. It is a sketch where we see five actors portraying different characters, both male and female all by themselves. They are also said to have written a few of the sketches on their own. The series includes Dark Humour and wild characters like the Chicken Lady and Axe Murderer. The series mainly narrates the history of this comedy troupe including interviews with many celebrities in the industry. They are named after a popular 1950s comedian- Sid Caesar. Whenever any of his jokes didn’t age well, he would brush it off by saying it is written by “the kids in the hall” and not him. Even though this series is often compared to SNL, it has more connection to Monty Python’s Flying Circus. With its pop culture and celebrity parodies, it basically delivers a bundle of bizarre jokes that you will likely feel guilty about laughing at!
