Yes! More Nick Kroll on TV is never a bad thing! He’s been killing it as Ruxin on the FX hit, The League and now he’s going to have a new sketch comedy show that’s currently slated to premiere in 2012.
The Nick Show Kroll, yes that is the name, will feature some of Nick’s most popular characters including Bobby Bottleservice, Fabrice Fabrice, and El Chupacabra. Sketches in the pilot episode included “The PubLIZity Girls,” with Kroll and Jenny Slate as publicists on the verge of a breakdown while arranging a swanky event for a client; “The Ed Hardy Boyz,” featuring Bobby Bottleservice who, along with Peter Paparazzo (Jon Daly) solve mysteries for Christian Audigier. An inappropriate basketball ref who tries to hang out with the players after the game; “Rich Dicks,” which sees Kroll as Aspen Bruckheimer, son of Jerry, who, along with his old moneyed friend Wendy (Jon Daly) are rich, on the prowl and ready to party at a moments notice – oh yeah, they’re also the biggest dicks in the world, and man-on-the-street interstitials from Fabrice Fabrice.
It’s been a pretty big year for Kroll, he kicked off the year with a new stand-up special in January, got another season renewal for his show, and most importantly… was interviewed by us! During said interview with Kroll, he mentioned that he was big into The Muppets when he was younger and modeled his stand-up special around that show and we’re thinking the format of sketch would work beautifully into this for The Nick Show Kroll.
