Kevin McDonald live at the North Carolina Comedy Festival

Kevin McDonald has been celebrated by improvisers and comedy writers ever since Lorne Michaels (SNL) put The Kids in the Hall on TV. Kevin founded Kids with fellow Second City Toronto student Dave Foley and they, with Mark McKinney, Bruce McCulloch, and Scott Thompson, made comedy history.

Kevin has become dedicated to supporting the art of comedy and helping to grow improv comedy scenes, a fact that was not subtly lampooned nightly during the Kids in the Hall reunion tour this year.

Don't miss Kevin McDonald! Kevin will be teaching a two-day sketch comedy intensive Master Class and headlining on Thursday Feb. 11, 2016.
