One of the best characters created by famed Canadian comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall was Buddy Cole, a gay, ascot-wearing, cocktail-sipping raconteur with a blond pompadour, who claimed Oscar Wilde stole from him, and who sat on a barstool delivering bitchy monologues about everything from racism and gay marriage to the Great White North. ("Americans know as much about Canada as straight people do about gays.") More than 20 years after the series ended, actor Scott Thompson has periodically resurrected his alter ego in one-man shows; Kids reunions; a 1998 parody memoir, Buddy Babylon: The Autobiography of Buddy Cole; and, most recently, as a correspondent from the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics for The Colbert Report, where he reported on Russia's anti-gay laws. Still bitter, Cole will be spilling his martini in Apres le Deluge: The Buddy Cole Monologues, where he'll no doubt rant about Trump and whatever else has him currently incensed.
