|Known for his role as “Ruxin” in the FX comedy “The League,” along with his stand-up specials and roles on “Community,” “Children’s Hospital,” “Parks & Recreation” and “Portlandia,” among other credits, Nick Kroll comes to COMEDY CENTRAL as the creator/writer/star of “Kroll Show,” a fresh take on sketch comedy, showcasing Kroll’s incredible ability to create memorable and hilarious characters who pop off the screen. While “Kroll Show” is made up of sketches, it’s not just a sketch show. It’s ultimately Nick’s smart and absurd take on of-the-moment pop culture topics like internet life, professional sports, nightclub culture and the television landscape. Executive produced and written by Kroll, John Levenstein (“Arrested Development”), and Jonathan Krisel (“Portlandia”), “Kroll Show” premieres eight episodes beginning on Wednesday, January 16 at 10:30 p.m.
Kroll (@nickkroll) fans will recognize many of their favorite characters, including “The Ed Hardy Boyz,” featuring Kroll as “Bobby Bottleservice” and Jon Daly as his sidekick, “Peter Paparazzo;” “Aspen Bruckenheimer” and “Wendy” (a.k.a. the “Rich Dicks”); and the incomparable “Fabrice Fabrice.” They’ll also be introduced to an entirely new part of the Kroll Universe as Nick transforms himself into an eccentric cast of characters throughout the season including “Dr. Armand,” the premier canine plastic surgeon; and “Gil Faizon,” an Upper West Side, middle-aged divorcé who's obsessed with Alan Alda, of the Oh, Hello Show, which Kroll created with John Mulaney.
Joining Nick for the first season of “Kroll Show” are a roster of well-known actors and comedians such as Fred Armisen, Tess Broussard, Andy Daly, Kathryn Hahn, Ed Helms, Rob Huebel, Andy Milonakis, Chelsea Peretti and Adam Pally, who showcase their comedic abilities when they make guest appearances and add an element of surprise to the show with fans never knowing who will pop up next.
