Scott Thompson: The Buddy Cole Monologues
September 19-21, 2019 | 8 PM
Historic Theatre, The Cultch
Well known to fans as a member of the sketch comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall, Scott Thompson is anything but your average comedic talent. Scott Thompson has been creating and performing monologues as Buddy for stage and screen appearances for over 30 years. Buddy is a world-weary, openly gay man, who is utterly unafraid to offer his dry takes on the most incendiary topics of this or any other day.
He’s been a special correspondent for The Colbert Report at the Sochi Olympics in 2014 and his work is currently on Vulture Magazine’s recent list of I00 jokes that shaped modern comedy.
“Après le Déluge is something of a roller-coaster ride, with Cole in the front car,
somehow steering the thing and daring us all to cry out in joy or rage or whatever it is
we need to do … an uproarious blend of fact and fiction.”
– Vish Khanna, Exclaim!
