Surreal, often transgressional SketchComedy show in the vein of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' and ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus,'' two shows to which it is often compared. Initiated and produced by ''SNL'' mastermind Lorne Michaels, ''The Kids In The Hall'' is often credited with kick-starting the AlternativeComedy boom of the 90s.

-->'''Green''': Well, I'll explain it to you. On first base is Hu. Samuel Hu. You're probably not used to that name, 'cause his grandfather was Chinese. On second base is Hector Watt, W-A-T-T, Watt [''[=McGuillicutty=] does a {{Facepalm}}''], and that's not such an unusual name 'cause James Watt invented the steam engine.

* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKkb0qXbyUY The "Art Studio" sketch]] runs on this. It starts with the students getting angry that the model is a woman (thus exploited by the "patriarchy") and white (not being diverse enough). The teacher trying to reason with them only makes them angrier.

Added DiffLines:

* SurrealHumor: The furthest they seem to have gone in this direction is "Aroomba", a deliberately nonsensical sketch produced as filler because the CBC wouldn't air "Dr. Seuss Bible". It includes, among other things, a waiter being amazed at all the money he keeps finding on tables and a doctor trying to diagnose his patient by cutting a steak, and abruptly ends with Kevin [=McDonald=] entering wearing Canadian flag underwear and singing while a stage hand carries a prop wall with a shower head attached behind him.
