If You LOL in Front of Your Computer, Nobody's Listening
After doing standup, film and TV spots, writing and producing, Nick Kroll hit primetime paydirt as the voice of an animated character on HBO's The Life & Times of Tim, and later as a juvenile fantasy-football player on FX's The League. But like most comics today, Kroll has gotten plenty of laughs online, having created such Web alter egos as Fabrice Fabrice, a flamboyant craft-services coordinator, and douche bag Bobby Bottleservice, a character that's been popularized by Jersey Shore and other reality TV shows. The "vokka" will flow and the tramp stamps will show on Comedy Central next year as Kroll stars in his own sketch comedy, The Nick Show Kroll. Not sure who he's got lined up for "Nick Kroll and Friends," but the actor's last show at Largo included guest Ed Helms.
