Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy (w/Ben Wandio)

It’s time to celebrate podcast heritage and a very Happy Canada Day to you all! On this very special episode, the guys welcome back Patron Ben Wandio to discuss the super Canadian comedy film Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy. This is not QUITE the usual episode as all three hosts very much enjoyed this movie so keep that in mind as you hear them talk about the legacy of the Kids being too-cool-for-the-room comedy, Mark McKinney evoking Lorne Michaels AND Donald Trump, Scott Thompson doing some very subversive, dark material about repressed sexual feelings, Bruce having the best “lady voice” and much more. Plus: a major debate regarding “Cancer Boy.”


The guys also drop a hint for next week’s movie. Check on Facebook or Twitter on Monday for the reveal!
