You know when Tim & Eric-SNL Digital Short-Portlandia director/producer Jonathan Krisel is on board, it’s gonna be BOMB. Super psyched to hear Kroll Show be renewed for a 10 ep 2nd season for what’s a pretty out-there sketch show for Comedy Central these days (I guess last year’s Jon Benjamin Has A Van was pretty nuts too, but that was canceled after season 1). Cool to see Life & Times of Tim exec producer John Levenstein reunite with Kroll (who was a voice on that show) as well.
Love the embracing of the low-fi video chat format for sketch. So good for character stuff. Here Kroll shows how good of an actor he is to fucking hilarious results. Glad to see (Kroll Show writer) Chelsea Peretti on screen after a series of mostly behind the cam gigs on Sarah Silverman Program, Parks & Rec and this week & next, SNL. Check Variety Shac to see more Peretti brilliance in action.
