SF – Brain Candy Live

000-kids-in-the-hall

Kids in the Hall’s Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, Scott Thompson and more appear on Saturday, January 14th at 7:00 PM for a ‘Brain Candy’ Live Staged Reading.

Press Release:

It’s hard to believe it’s been just over twenty years since the Kids in the Hall’s beloved cult classic “Brain Candy” came to theaters, acquainting fans with now-famous characters like Marv and Alice, Chris and Don, and Wally Terzinsky with his wonderfully on-the-nose musical number, “I’m Gay.” This year at SF Sketchfest, the Kids in the Hall bring a rare, very special staged reading of the seminal film, accompanied by narration, music and the occasional video clip!
