Cops: Running Naked
Mark and Bruce’s “cops” characters are so hilariously versatile that they’re the single characters that have been transcended into the other Kids projects, both the feature film Brain Candy and the stellar minseries Death Comes to Town.
In another surreal sketch, “The Monkeys,” an eccentric old man ostensibly holds an entire town hostage with the threat of killer monkeys, heard screeching in the background.
I feel like this is one of the most criminally underrated sketches, but another one of my favorites. There is no more beautiful thing than an apathetic convenience store worker.
“Daves I Know”
I’m in a running group which contains a good 4-5 Daves, who the rest of us collectively refer to as “the Daves.” Because this sketch is so ingrained into my memory, I can’t ever refer to them in that way without this song coming to my mind.
“Chicken Lady: Homecoming”
OK, fine — I’ll throw in a Chicken Lady sketch to finish it out. Arguably one of the most popular characters, it’s cool to hear Mark describe how she was conceived. This one is probably my favorite of all the Chicken Lady sketches.
