Can anyone help me find this Kids in the Hall sketch?

Can anyone tell me the name of the sketch from Kids in the Hall in which they do a musical act in the style of old stage shows climbing up stairs and such? The song consisted of people just singing the partsof the song to show how formulaic it was, such as "chorus" and "bridge." If you can find me a video of it, that would be even better.

What are these comedy videos?

There was a series of viral videos of a somewhat rotund boy playing spin the bottle and possibly doing other activities with his toys and possibly some other objects. The kid was actually an adult comedian. I can't for the life of me remember what these were called and can't find them anywhere. I think they were before Youtube. What was the name of the series and where could I find them again?

Comedyfilter: King of France swearing sketch?

Am I insane? I remember seeing a funny sketch comedy clip and the subject was a dad at the breakfast table verbally wailing on his family members using swear words that were all The-King-of-France related -- but I can't find any reference to it. I distinctly remember Kids in the Hall members, too. [more inside]

What Jerky Boys segment am I thinking of?

There was a segment of the Jerky Boys I heard on a tape from a friend way back in the mid to late 80's that had a caller trying to arrange for a job interview while his wife was harassing him about needing to use the phone. At a certain point he has enough and you can hear what sounds like a lamp smashing into her head and then he calls back asking for the person to cover for him because she's laying on the floor not moving. What's the name of that bit and where can I find it?
