Ahead of returning with their Prime Video reboot of the beloved The Kids in the Hall sketch comedy series tomorrow (May 13), the legendary Canadian comedy troupe who need no further introduction or flattery are offering us our first taste with a locally-sourced full-length sketch.

The gang revisit characters from a 1994 sketch from Season 5 of the original series entitled "Dessert" (a.k.a. "Dipping Areas"). This time around, a situation ensues when a customer (Kevin McDonald in drag) asks anxious waiter Mark McKinney for the "pie" they'd seen on social media — but the restaurant only serves a Tarte Blueberry Sauvage. Zut alors!

Watch the full sketch below.
