When they last reunited for a major tour, seven years ago, the members of Canada’s most famed sketch- comedy troupe had already long since transitioned into full- fledged adulthood. And now, as they work their way across Canada and through parts of the U. S. on a brand- new set of theatre shows, it’s fair to say that the Kids — all of whom are comfortably into their 50s — are more suited to the “ men of a certain age” bracket. That doesn’t mean, however, that they’ve lost touch with the youthful enthusiasm necessary for embarking on an old- fashioned comedy road show.
