"Kroll Show" (Comedy Central) highlights Nick Kroll's incredible ability to transform himself into hilarious characters that pop off the screen while bringing many of his popular short-form favorites along for the ride. 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 Kroll as Bobby Bottleservice who, along with Peter Paparazzo (Jon Daly) solve mysteries for Christian Audigier, King of the Ed Hardy fashion empire; Kroll as 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 Kroll's popular character Fabrice Fabrice.

Viewers will also be introduced to an entirely new part of the Kroll Universe as Nick transforms himself into an eccentric cast of characters throughout the season including "Liz," a young, female publicist in LA; "Legs" the new kid at a school for handicapped kids; "Dr. Armand," the premier canine plastic surgeon; and "Ref Jeff", a big-butted basketball ref trying to "lock down" plans with players during the game.

Joining Nick for the first season of "Kroll Show" are a roster of well-known actors and comedians such as Fred Armisen, Andy Daly, Kathryn Hahn, Ed Helms, Rob Huebel, Chelsea Peretti, Adam Pally, and Jake Johnson who showcase their comedic abilities when they make guest appearances and add an element of surprise to the show with fans never knowing who will pop up next.

"Kroll Show" is executive produced and written by Kroll, John Levenstein ("Arrested Development") and Jonathan Krisel ("SNL," "Portlandia"), who is also directing. John Daly ("Happy Endings," "Nick Swardson's Pretend Time") serves as supervising producer and actor in the series. Jim Sharp and Monika Zielinska are the executives in charge of production for Comedy Central.
