Scott Thompson Describes a Cut 'Kids in the Hall' Sketch About Big Packages

"Yes, one called 'Baskets' by me and Kevin. We were reporters with enormous genitals who worked for a newspaper that was only concerned with issues affecting the big packages community. It took place at a press conference. Bruce was the politician, Dave was his saxophone playing wife and Mark was Peter Allan the Australian singer/songwriter for some reason."

- Scott Thompson in his Friday Reddit AMA, in which he describes his favorite cut Kids in the Hall sketch and also teases about a possible Buddy Cole movie idea.

Watch Scott Thompson as Buddy Cole on Last Night's 'Colbert Report'

One of the greatest characters to come out of The Kids in the Hall is no doubt Scott Thompson's fabulous gay bar frequenter Buddy Cole, who made a surprise appearance on last night's Colbert Report as Stephen's longtime producer and former theater camp attendee. Buddy was on hand to discuss Russia's anti-gay laws and interviewed openly gay Ambassador Daniel Baer about how to safely visit the country; watch the "From Russia With Love (But No Gay Stuff)" segment above.

Buddy Cole Gets as Close to Sochi as Possible for 'The Colbert Report'

Scott Thompson's Sochi Olympics coverage as Buddy Cole continued in a third segment on last night's Colbert Report (watch the previous installments here and here), and it's the best one yet. Cole sports an enormous fur coat and attempts to combat the "rampant gay propagandizing" in Sochi, or at least as close to Sochi as he is legally allowed. Come for the Buddy Cole, stay for the Nervous Producer Cam when Russian cops approach Buddy and crew to inform them that they can't protest without the government's permission.
