The world needs more Kids In The Hall

This was a really great history lesson on one of, if not THE greatest comedy troupes of all time. From each of the members humble beginnings to near present time you learn so much about the gang you appreciate them so much more. If you're a KITH fan, do yourself a favour and get this book!
Paul Myers voice is also great, doesn't distract from the story but also comfortable if that makes sense lol

One Hall of A Good Listen

The Story of the Kids in the Hall was well written, well told and really in depth. A great story from their humble beginnings to the hopes of another chapter being written some day. A great listen for fans and anyone wondering what it takes to make it in show business. What a journey.

This is a wonderful compendium of The Kids in the Hall.

This is the story of The Kids in the Hall well told by author Paul Myers. If you’re a fan I definitely recommend this book/audio. Paul does a great job on the narration and he makes you feel like your right there in the room with ‘The Kids’. It’s funny and real. You won’t be disappointed.
