When it comes to absolute titans of sketch comedy, it’s hard to beat Monty Python’s Flying Circus and Mr. Show with Bob and David. But there are other shows that deserve some major credit as well. Yes, SNL, but also Kids in the Hall and SCTV, especially SCTV.
For those who agree, this should be pretty exciting. According to IndieWire, Netflix is bringing us an SCTV reunion special that will be directed by none other than honorary SCTV member Martin Scorsese.
The special will be a sit-down interview affair moderated by Jimmy Kimmel featuring Dave Thomas, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Andrea Martin, Eugene Levy and Joe Flaherty. Obviously, John Candy is no longer with us. Rick Moranis remains stubbornly retired, even for Scorsese.
The special will be filmed at the Elgin Theater in Toronto on May 13. We’re not sure yet when it’ll hit Netflix, but this is something we’ll be keeping a serious eye out for.
