“I could have an entire conversation using only KITH quotes so when I saw that there was a KITH book on Libro.fm I jumped! It is everything I hoped it would be, stories about each of the Kids growing up and then them meeting and forming. Loads of behind the scenes looks at the most famous sketches and characters. A sprinkling of commentary of their place in the industry and and honest look at some of their failures. One Dumb Guy is a perfect gift for the Chicken Lady fan in your life. It is, as Bruce would say, A pretty sweet fruit.”
