A two-section documentary about Canadian comedy troupe The Young children in the Corridor is headed to Amazon Prime after debuting up coming month at the South by Southwest pageant.
Prime Online video, Amazon’s streaming arm, says The Kids in the Hall: Comedy Punks will aspect archival footage from the quintet’s earliest decades, powering-the-scenes clips from their eponymous sketch series and in-depth interviews with users Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson.
The documentary dives into the group’s submit-punk era origins in the mid-1980s, 5 seasons of their tv sequence, a controversial element film and several offered-out excursions.
It is set to premiere at the SXSW Film Pageant in Austin, Texas, this March before landing on Key Video afterwards this calendar year.
The look-again joins a Toronto-shot revival of The Youngsters in the Hall sketch collection that is also established to stream on Amazon Prime later this 12 months.
The initial comedy aired from 1989 to 1995 on CBC, as well as CBS and HBO in the United States.
Generated by Blue Ant Studios, the new documentary is drawn from the biography The Youngsters in the Hall: Just one Dumb Person by Paul Myers, who serves as an executive producer.
Highlighted interviews include things like Fred Armisen, Lauren Ash, Jay Baruchel, Janeane Garofalo, Eddie Izzard, Mae Martin, Lorne Michaels and Mike Myers.
