The Kids themselves---short bios
David Scott Foley, the youngest Kid, was born on January 4, 1963 in Etobicoke, a suburb in Toronto, Canada.  He dropped out of high school at 17 to pursue a career in comedy.  He met future Kids in the Hall member Kevin McDonald after joining the Second City Comedy Troupe in Toronto.  The two were the founding members of KITH in 1984.  After the show ended in 1994, Dave went on to the television series "NewsRadio," which ran from 1995-1999.
Bruce Ian McCulloch was born on May 12, 1961 in Edmonton,  Alberta, Canada and was raised in Calgary.  He went to Mount Royal College where he studied journalism and public relations.  While at the Loose Moose Theater Company, he met future KITH member Mark McKinney during Theater Sports.  Bruce worked as a writer on Saturday Night Live from 1985-86 and 1994-95.  He is the shortest member of the Kids in the Hall at 5' 6". (Though in one episode, he said he thought he was 5' 7".)  In 1995, he released an album called "Shame Based Man."  (see below) He in March 2003, he married his girlfriend Tracy.
Kevin Hamilton McDonald was born on May 16, 1961 (exactly 4 days after Bruce) in Montreal, Quebec.  He studied to become a drama major at Humber College in Toronto, but was asked to leave because he "only" did comedy.  While doing an improvisation class and working at the Second City Comedy Troupe in Toronto, he met Dave Foley and the two formed the Kids in the Hall in 1984. Kevin has made guest appearances on several shows since the Kids in the Hall ended, including NewsRadio and the Drew Carey Show. He was also a writer for the Martin Short Show (1999-2000).
Mark Douglas Brown McKinney was born June 26, 1959 in Ottawa, Canada.  He has lived in Trinidad, Tobago, Washington, DC and Paris.  He went to college in Newfoundland and met Bruce McCulloch during Theater Sports.  After the Kids in the Hall ended its run, Mark went on to do two seasons of Saturday Night Live from 1995-96 and 1996-97, though he was poorly used.  He has been featured in some SNL-related films such as "Superstar" and "A Night at the Roxbury."
Scott Thompson, the openly gay Kid, was born on June 12, 1959 (making him the oldest Kid by 14 days, followed by Mark) in North Bay, Ontario and he was raised in Brampton.  He attended York University Drama School, but was asked to leave during his third year for "disruptive behavior." He first became interested in sketch comedy after seeing the Kids in the Hall perform at the Poor Alex Theater in Toronto in 1984 while the troupe still had 7 or 8 members at the time.  The Kids saw Scott perform at Theater Sports and he became a member of the troupe in 1985.  He was the last member to join and the line up of the five Kids was finally complete.

Kurt Cobain and the Kids in the Hall
Scott is mentioned in Kurt Cobain's 12/7/93 letter to Advocate Readers:
"Hi to Scott from the Kids in the Hall.  Speaking of Canadians the Advocate should talk with Bruce La Bruce.  He's made some hilarious erotic films." --~Kurt Cobain
*Connection between Bruce La Bruce and Kids in the Hall: Scott appeared as Buddy in the Bruce film Super 8 1/2. *

While the Kids were on tour in 1994, they ended up in Seattle on the day of Kurt's vigil.  According to Scott Thompson, some people from Kurt's management came up to the troupe and said, "We know you were fans and Kurt spoke about you a number of times and we want you to have this photo (of Kurt as a child)." The photo of Kurt is shown in the final episode of the Kids in the Hall on top of the bar in the last Buddy Cole skit. In a summary of Scott's conversation with Gary Morris about Kurt Cobain. Scott says in the interview that "meeting Kurt Cobain was truly one of the highlights."

The Advocate excerpt is from Lalaine's Kids in the Hall Collection

The 18th track Vigil on Bruce McCulloch's Shame Based Man CD mentions Kurt's name twice and is about his time in Seattle the day of the vigil.

It's a Brucio World
Bruce as Gavin


This was it...the very last KITH skit
1 of these 5 men has something interesting to say
It's a Fact:
-Dave Foley's sister is featured in the "Double Date" sketch
-The "Headcrusher" idea came from a real life double date where Mark and Kevin's dates didn't like them, so Mark started "crushing        their heads." Kevin suggested that Mark bring that into a sketch, saying that "every college kid in America would be doing it."
-Bruce is the only one of the Troupe who has never permanently resided in America
-Bruce directed Superstar and Dog Park, both of which Mark is in
-Mark says his favorite role of all his movies is the dog psychologist from Dog Park
-None of them got along with their fathers
-Kevin's real-life girlfriend plays Kevin's girlfriend in the sketch where he and Dave party across America while the women are in Mexico
-Dave's lack of roles in Brain Candy were due to his time consumption with NewsRadio. He didn't have any writing credits in Brain Candy
-Bruce liked The Who when he was growing up, not The Doors
-Scott's being in the Troupe is the only reason that the Kids did any "gay" sketches
-All of them have been in movies with one other member of the Troupe: Bruce and Mark were in Dog Park; Dave and Bruce were in Dick;  Kevin and Mark were in The Ladies Man; Dave and Kevin were in The Wrong Guy; Dave and Scott were in Run, Ronnie, Run
-Brain Candy is dedicated to Scott's brother Dean, who committed suicide two weeks before Brain Candy began filming
-Kevin also had a rough period during the production of Brain Candy--he was going through a divorce
