Mark McKinney, Bruce McCulloch, Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald and Scott Thompson make up a quirky sketch comedy group who indulge in pop culture parodies, celebrity impersonations -- watch for Thompson's Queen Elizabeth II -- and more. The Kids oftentimes appear as themselves rather than as characters, hilarious monologues are aplenty and courting controversy is not something with which this troupe is unaccustomed.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Canadian sketch comedy series uses sophisticated -- and sometimes mature -- humor designed to make adults laugh. That means you'll hear unbleeped language (including "f--k" and "s--t") and see some skits that revolve around sexual jokes and innuendo. There's occasional cartoonish violence, too, as well as a few scenes that involve alcohol or drugs. Most of the humor will go over kids' head, although there are a few sketches -- particularly a recurring segment in which a character tries to "crush" people's heads with his fingers -- that will probably appeal to them.

Sexual Content

Some sex jokes, including a few jokes intended to make fun of homophobia. A few sketches include partial nudity, such as bare bottoms shown from the back.


Comedic violence is rare; it's more often discussed and isn't graphic.


Relatively rare but unbleeped use of "f--k," "s--t," the "N" word, and "faggot," along with words like "hell," "shut up," and "nookie."

Social Behavior

There's no real overarching "message"; the takeaways change from sketch to sketch and are usually silly and/or comedic.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some skits involve social drinking or jokes about getting drunk or using drugs
