Main Plot Points:
- From the unique mind of Nick Kroll comes a new sketch series, Kroll Show, satirizing our television obsessed culture and the rabid fan base it breeds. More than just a collection of sketches, Kroll Show is about giving Nick’s fans a chance to see his of-the-moment take on pop culture, sports news, nightclub culture, and what defines celebrity with characters and storylines that recur throughout each season.
What We Thought:
- Kroll Show has some really funny moments, but it also has a lot of jokes that didn’t work for me.
- This set is the first and second season. There’s a lot of recurring jokes and sketches throughout. Characters like Liz & Liz and Bobby Bottleservice make constant appearances.
- But if there’s one that I really liked it, it’s Wheels Ontario. I genuinely find that funny. It’s like a spoof of Degrassi meets Justin Bieber hairstyles. It’s hands down my favorite sketches. Kroll certainly makes a very pretty teenaged Canadian boy.
- There are a lot of sketches that I don’t find that funny or I found funny but they keep going with them. Rich Dicks is kind of like that. It’s funny, but some aren’t nearly as good as the others.
- The show does feature a ton of talented people. Besides Kroll you’ll see Chelsea Peretti, Jon Daly, John Mulaney, Bill Burr, Andy Milonakis, Jenny Slate and more. Even Peter Gallagher makes an appearance (in a Bobby Bottleservice bit).
- I like Kroll Show more than Broad City, but nowhere near as much as Key & Peele. I find myself watching it more as individual clips on YouTube than I do as episodes on TV/DVD. But if you like Comedy Central programs, you should like Season 1 & 2.
