John Semley on his book about the Kids in the Hall called 'This is a Book About the Kids in the Hall'

C

John Semley is a prolific journalist and cultural critic based in Toronto who regularly contributes to the Globe and Mail and Macleans magazine. His obsession with comedy led him to fall in love with true originals in the innovative Canadian troupe, the Kids in the Hall. ECW Press has just published This is a Book About The Kids in the Hall, Semley’s exhaustive and engaging overview of the life and times of Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson, otherwise known, as the Kids in the Hall. Semley and I recently met at his home to discuss his own trajectory as a fan and journalist, the smug and sincere world of comedy, the history of the Kids in the Hall and more. So have a listen to myself and John Semley on Kreative Kontrol.
