Jim Carrey was the funniest guy on that show. He stole the show.

I don't know, some of those SNL casts from the 70's-80's could probably rival.

I like that cast though. In order, my favorites would be (in terms of sketch comedy): D. Wayans, Foxx, Carrey, Grier

Kids in the Hall's cast, though largely unknown, was very good. But, it probably wasn't for everybody.

Of coures it will destroy ILC if you name all 237 cast members from 30+ seasons. But I'm talking about for one season, is their cast better the the ILC cast for one season.

Did you make this thread after watching In Living Color on BET a couple of hours ago? I just happened to catch it and was laughing my ass off. I could watch Head Detective on loop for hours

I also can't believe they actually used the N word in a sketch. Oh how times have changed.

Kids in the Hall was an amazing show. I've got a few of the boxsets; need to pick up the others when I have some spare change.

Upright Citizens Brigade is another one that kind of flies under the radar. I thought it was lame when I first watched it. Probably ended up watching every single episode atleast 10 times... on weed.

My favorite skits that I can remember are...head crusher, running f@ggot, 30 Helens agree, plus the one where the guy gets in a fight at his local bar and keeps running full speed toward the other guy only to get punched in the head over and over.

Kids in the Hall, In Living Color, Upright Citizens Brigade were all great shows, but without a doubt the best cast ever was when SNL had Farley, Sandler, Spade, Hartman etc... etc...
