After The Kids left television in 1995, Scott and the boys went on to write and star in their own feature film "BRAIN CANDY," which is a cult favorite today. Thompson also appeared as a regular for three years on the revolutionary comedy series The Larry Sanders Show as Brian, Hank Kingsley's assistant.

During this time he made numerous guest appearances on other shows such as Politically Incorrect and Late Night w/ Conan O'Brien.
