Don't you ever laugh at my car

Here's another Kids sketch, this time from season 1. To me, sketches like this one are the reason to go out and put down the cash for these DVDs because I don't ever remember seeing this on Comedy Central or CBC. I guess they thought it wasn't funny enough for the Jon Stewart or 'This Hour has 22 Minutes' loving public. And I'm pretty sure that Comedy Central only has 5 episodes of this show that they decide to show on a whim once every 5 months at 2:30 AM on a Tuesday morning. CBC, I don't know when the last time they aired an episode was.

Anyway, this is one of Bruce's first films. He supposedly saw this car outside of his house and left a note on it asking if he could use it for his TV show because of it's trashy hilarity. Who hasn't seen a car like this or some ridiculous monster truck out on the road and not laughed at the car and the very predictable looking drivers?

If you visit this blog 7 more times...

...I'll show you my tin soldier collection.

Welcome to 'Having an Average Weekend' - my video blog. I'll basically be posting videos on youtube and providing links through blogger. Yeah, I guess it's pretty pointless to have this blog then, but I figured I gotta enter the 'blog-o-sphere' somehow. Judging by the title of my blog (it's the name of the Kids' theme song), you're probably thinking that they'll mostly be KITH sketches. You're probably right.

Anyway, this sketch is from season 2. It's a Darrill sketch. Darrill is a 30ish mamma's boy played by Mark McKinney. He can't get any women and is stuck in a dead end waiter job and sometimes has his own painting show on public access. Let me tell you, there's a rumor floating around out there that Mark McKinney is the least funny of the Kids, but after watching this it should be clear as day that that's not true. Underrated is what I'd call it. Another bonus about this sketch - it's got Scott Thompson playing one his usual drooling, creepy old men.

If you want more of Darrill or creepy old men, let me know in the comments. Enjoy!
