The Kids--Mark McKinney, Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch and Kevin McDonald--saw Thompson's act and were impressed enough to ask him to join them.

Bonus Trivia

.

"It's my one bitterness. I've watched an army of straight people walk off groaning with awards, and for what? For Roseanne's kiss? Or Streisand's 'Margarethe Cammermeyer Story?' Gay culture is supposed to support the individual, and yet they don't know what to do with mavericks like me." --Scott Thompson, quoted in Us, April 1996.

.

On Barbra Streisand: "I loved her as a kid, but there's nothing I hate more than when a funny person becomes holier than thou--when a person with a talent for comedy starts to think it's not worthwhile. And this last tour--$350 a ticket. And she wore white. She drank tea. She sat down. To me, those are mortal sins. You wear black, with sparkly accents. You dance, you keep moving, a la Liza. And you don't drink tea." --Scott Thompson in Us, April 1996.

.

"Every year we'd go to Lorne and ask, why aren't we bigger? Why aren't we more successful? And he'd tell us to just be patient. Now, I think that was part of his plan, to keep us small. And I think that was brilliant. It kept us hungry. It kept the work pure." --Scott Thompson in L.A. Weekly, April 1996.

.

Not to be confused with other currently-working Scott Thompsons, who include an actor (TV and films, beginning late 1970s), a stuntman, an assistant director and a special effects coordinator.
