Comedy Central‘s pop culture program Kroll Show has done so well in its short run, that the network has decided to renew it for a second season.
“Nick plays his characters with such comedic conviction, it’s become obvious he has a serious personality disorder,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central‘s president of original programming. “We hope another season will help him discover who he really is.”
Nick Kroll added, “All of me are very excited.”
Kroll Show is executive produced and written by Nick Kroll, John Levenstein, and Jonathan Krisel. The January 16 premiere drew an audience of 1.4 million viewers, and was the no. 1 show in all television on its Wednesday night timeslot.
If you haven’t seen it, I’d probably describe it as Robot Chicken with a live-action cast. Kroll uses recurring characters based on what seem to be reality TV stereotypes with loose continuity and a hectic back-and-forth pace. It’s worth your time, trust me.
Speaking to Vulture about the show, Nick Kroll joked that even his parents sort of enjoy Kroll Show.
“You know, my parents are good in that they’ll be like, “”re not the demographic for that.’ They’ve always been good about watching and giving me their honest feedback while still being supportive.”
When asked if they have a favorite character on the show, Kroll replied: “That’s a good question. I don’t know. Bobby [Bottleservice] really loves his mother, so my mom probably likes that. They like ‘PubLIZity’ a lot.”
