Need help identifying Kids in the Hall sketch

I'm searching for the name of a sketch done on Kids in the Hall. I'm uncertain of the season but I caught it years ago on Comedy Central.

From what I remember it takes place in a restaurant. Bruce McCulloch's character is complaining to a waiter and goes on and on, on a 2-3min rant while the camera switches to Dave Foley's character sitting in the same area just laughing at Bruce ranting/whining. Bruce at one point yells at Dave asking why he's laughing and every now and then, from Dave's perspective, he sees Bruce in a ridiculous costume while he's ranting to the waiter. I don't even think Dave Foley had any lines and all he did was laugh at Bruce.

I hope that's enough info. Any ideas?

You sure it wasn't a cabbage head sketch?

It wasn't. I remember the sketch the OP is talking about, but I'm not sure what season. For some reason I'm thinking it's an earlier one.

Re: Need help identifying Kids in the Hall sketch

I vaugely recall something like this and it wasn't the cabbage head character either.

In one piece of dialogue I recall Bruce's character saying, "I'm voting here with my dollars, they're called dollar votes! -- referencing bad service or something.

I've got S1 - 3 on DVD. Just too lazy to browse them right now.

I have the complete set on DVD but it's still sealed. I remember Bruce doing a character like that. Don't know if it was a recurring sketch/character worthy of a name.

Isn't that the one where at the end they do the fake contest of a breakfast with Bellini?
