Après le Déluge: The Buddy Cole Monologues

Thu, Sep 19 - Sat, Sep 21

Pi Provocateurs presents Scott Thompson’s
Après le Déluge: The Buddy Cole Monologues

Lounge lizard Buddy Cole from Kids in the Hall makes a return to the limelight in an evening of humorous monologues from the period the show went off the air in 1995, to the present day.

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. He’s been a special correspondent for The Colbert Report at the Sochi Olympics in 2014 and is currently on Vulture Magazine’s recent list of 100 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!

Written and performed by Scott Thompson
Directed by Robin Collins
Run time: 70 minutes
Sept 19-21 at 8pm
