PHOTOS : Dave Foley surprises Mayne Stage, joins Thompson and Mcdonald in "Two Kids One Hall"...

Three Kids One Hall

The announcer says "Please welcome Kevin Mcdonald and Scott Thompson", and out comes Dave Foley...

Just as the Sun-Times hinted at, Dave Foley surprised Chicago tonight by joining the cast of "Two Kids One Hall" alongside Scott Thompson and Kevin Mcdonald.

The set was delightfully dirtier than we thought it was going to be. Dave started the night and stayed out a good 40 minutes, frequently asking if that was enough, only to hear Thompson yelling at him to keep going. Foley stated that if he "seemed rusty", that he hadn't done stand-up in a while, but nobody seemed to mind him shaking off a few cobwebs. His set was probably the dirtiest, talked blowjobs and pubic hair, ball shaving, and made fun of the audience member up front dressed in a "flying pig" costume. They all did.

They riffed on each other from on and off the stage. Foley told Thompson to "get out of the wing" as he paced back and forth on the side of the stage. Kevin Mcdonald sang two songs in the comedic fashion. They were convincingly hilarious. He made faces and delivered solid sets in between Scott Thompson's talk of how great foreskins are, interrupting Kevin from the audience, giving babies blowjobs instead of circumcisions. Vicious. Falling, lying, and "homer circling" on the floor, picking each other up, hugging between changeovers, it was clear they just wanted to have fun.

Stanhope would have laughed his ass off.

Foley plays the Improv this weekend, while Thompson and Mcdonald continue their five show run at the beautiful Mayne Stage.

Last night was EPIC! Thanks for posting pictures and the review! I'm glad Foley did end up showing because the dynamic between him, Scott and Kevin has always been my favorite! It had been too long since they were in Chicago! Thanks for the post!

I also loved when Dave asked how long he had been up there and Kevin shouted "45 more minutes". "Ladies and gentlemen, the world's smartest retarded man" LOL Of course, I loved having Dave in the audience and the bit at the end with Scott in the middle of the audience and not listening to Kevin's fire story was hilarious. The guys are super nice and so much fun! And while I absolutely love their sketch comedy, their standup is great too. These guys are my therapy and my drug!

Maybe I just don't get it, but why have all the sex shit in there? Cosby was funnier 'n hell and he never had to the smut stuff. What's happened to good, real comedy?

Although I think your comment is really sweet, Your Humble Blogger, I'm not sure these three guys are really best compared to Cosby. Even their old stuff is more cutting edge than most comedy these days. That's what makes them so great - they don't hold back!

I haven't seen "The Kids" in quite some time. I enjoyed the photos very much. It sounds like a great time was had by all. Wish I was there.
