I chose the Kids mainly because they were what made me realize that sketch comedy could still be funny after too many bad seasons of SNL. Mr. Show grabbed the torch once they were gone.

Mr. Show.....never watched much KITH.

Yeah, I'm lame.

Mr. Show. While KITH has some incredible material, I found Mr. Show's run to be more consistent in quality. Plus, it plays a lot more to my sense of humor overall.

I hear ya. I absolutely LOVE KITH, and it will always be right up there in my favourite shows, but some of their stuff really went right by me in terms of comedy. I also find that if i'm not in the right mood, KITH doesn't make me laugh. Mr. Show, on the other hand, was pretty much funny straight through (only the skit involving Nostradomus left me feeling cheated...that and the guy with the old dude who had testicles on his chest...don't remember too much about that one), and even if i was in a bad mood, would crack me up to no end.

Kids in the Hall will always be my FIRST favourite sketch comedy though.

That's a tough one. I went with KITH but Mr. Show is one of the best sketch com shows too.

Whatever the fuck that show Kelsey Grammer had on last year that tanked after 3 episodes.

Pales in comparison to THE ROUNDHOUSE.

SNICK 4 LIFE.

In this Poll: MR. SHOW rules for the reasons listed. More consistant with the funny and I don't have to be in a certain mood to enjoy the sketches. KITH is still awesome.

THE STATE might give it a run though. "Monkeys don't do it! They make-a-da-love...." Where the fuck is the dvd for this show?

MR SHOW, although I enjoy KITH. And, yes, we need a DVD set of THE STATE yesterday.

Refresh my memory: The State had perennial VH1 talking head Micahel Ian Clark Black Duncan and the pudding sketches, right?

BEATEN BY STUCKASAURUS WITH THE WIKI SKILLZ!!!! W00T!

Yup. And Louie dipping his balls in shit, Kabuki Doug, and a hundred more funnies. Basically went, if I recall, THE STATE - VIVA VARIETY - RENO 911 - STELLA (the show, they were around before Reno)... I may be missing something.

WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER is a great movie. GRREAATT!

I compltely forgot about Viva Variety. That skit about the self-help tapes for people that hate Turks kills me.

"After listening to these tapes I can honestly say I still hate the Turks. But now, I keep it to myself."

I fucking loved Viva Variety.

I love KITH but I had to go with Mr. Show

Yer all a bunch a yankees.

Seriously though, I think Kids in the Hall was better written and acted with a lot of the humour being more subtle and less 'gross-out' obvious than Mr. Show. But don't get me wrong, I also loved Mr. Show, particularly the brilliant documentary on Felch.
