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.
