Comedy Punks: Kids In The Hall

"Episode 2"


Through never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with celebrities, industry insiders and the “Kids” themselves – this two-part documentary delves into this cult-famous comedy troupe’s post-punk origins in the mid-1980s and provides inside access to their tumultuous 40-year journey across five seasons of their renowned television series, a controversial feature film, multiple sold-out tours, and their recently announced reboot for Amazon.

Episode Synopsis:
The troupe perfect their craft over 5 seasons of their hit series. Taking the logical next step – the troupe tackles a feature film, only to find that personal infighting and creative differences are destined to blow the troupe apart... for a time, at least. Reuniting for a series of successful tours leads the troupe to further TV work and newfound fame with a whole new generation of fans.
