Nick Kroll Characters Old And New In Three Clips From Comedy Central's Kroll Show
Probably best known as Rodney 'everybody calls me' Ruxin on FX's The League, Nick Kroll is also an established stand-up, sketch, improv and alt comic. Or, as some might say, a well rounded comedian or funny guy and his Comedy Central special called Thank You Very Cool from two years back is not just an hilarious hour but also a great showcase for a few of the characters you can expect to see show up on his new program simply titled Kroll Show.
Dammit. Now I can't get SNL's Dog Show! theme out of my head. Anyway, perhaps these new promos for the sketch series with recurring story lines and characters "satirizing our television obsessed culture and the rabid fan base it breeds" will help shake that awful song from my mind. If anyone can do it, it's Bobby Bottleservice Here's a clip called "Video Chat" that has guest star Chelsea Peretti playing a singer intent on joining the BB musical empire.
The next clip, "PubLIZity - Pitching a New Client," not only showcases an entirely new sketch/set of characters for Kroll (or should I say Liz G.) but also features the lovely Jenny Slate, another one of the comedian's company of talented and funny friends. Take a look.
Last is perhaps my favorite clip of the three, with "Overheard on the Court" introducing NBA Ref Jef who takes us right onto the hardwood as he's mic'd up for games. He seems a little more interested in what's going on after the game but I'm sure Bobby Bottleservice can take care of him.
Kroll Show premieres on Wednesday, January 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET on FX. Written by Kroll, John Levenstein and Jonathan Krisel (with the latter also directing... YES!), the series will feature a ton of guest stars including Peretti, Slate, Hannibal Buress, Andy Daly, Jon Daly, Ed Helms, Rob Huebel and THE John Mulaney.
