In the spirit of David Sedaris, these bits by "Kids in the Hall" Bruce McCulloch are hilarious and weird, much like the actor himself. This is anything but a conventional biography as the author paints a very surreal, humorous and sometimes dark portrait of life in Hollywood and Canada, fatherhood, and forming the sketch comedy group with the help of Saturday Night Live.
Hilarious read, couldn't put it down. Must read if you were/are a KITH fan.
I heard Bruce McCulloch on CBC Radio doing the Proust Questionnaire. I thought I'd read his book and was very disappointed. McCulloch simply comes across as smarmy and smug.
I read this book because I knew Bruce well during his years in Toronto, and I was curious as to how his description of that time would jive with what I remember. Sadly, it would seem that Bruce is still lacking insight into his life and instead playing it for cheap laughs. His tale of the legendary tequila fest is fairly accurate, but has not benefited from any maturity of vision. And the tartan notebooks he refers to again and again? That's where he wrote down other people's best lines, so annoying. He hurt a lot of people along the way, but fails to acknowledge this. I guess I was looking for an apology - sure didn't find it.
