May 12

Happy Birthday to one of the Kids: comedian Bruce McCulloch, of the Canadian sketch comedy group Kids in the Hall. If your memory's short on which member was who, Bruce was the short one. He was also the most musical one, writing several songs for the show and the subsequent movie "Brain Candy".

Besides KITH, Bruce has recorded two albums of his funny songs. He's worked more behind the camera than his fellow Kids (writing and directing SNL episodes, plus feature films Dog Park, Stealing Harvard, and Superstar). Most recently, he created the ABC sitcom "Carpoolers", and if I'd have known, I'd have given the show a chance. Especially if they had more scenes like this:
