The Kids stopped doing their show two years ago. It's too bad that this may be what they're remembered for.

You can see the performers/writers laboring to keep the laughs coming in stories that would have worked better as skits.

It was supposed to be a comedy, but it just wasn't funny. End of story.

Isn't anything more than a sloppy showcase for the group's costume-changing tricks, but sometimes its sheer chutzpah can be amusing.

There are some very funny bits, but they're interspersed with long stretches of exposition that drag the whole thing down, down, down.
