Kids in the Hall: 'Brain Candy' Live Staged Reading with Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, Scott Thompson and more

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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! $45
