Comedy Central Premieres Second Season of KROLL SHOW Tonight
Welcome back inside the many minds of Nick Kroll as Comedy Central's critically-acclaimed pop culture sketch-uational comedy series "Kroll Show" returns for a second season. Kroll brings his characters back to life with more drama and hilarity than ever before, including publicist "Liz" trying to cope with her pregnant coworker; renowned canine plastic surgeon "Dr. Armond," who gets involved in a murder mystery; more wild and absurd moments from the "Rich Dicks," and "Bobby Bottleservice," who moves into a "Gigolo House." The eleven-episode second season kicks off tonight, January 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Fans can catch up with a "Best Of" season one episode on Tuesday, December 10 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, following the season finale of "Tosh.0."
In the premiere episode, we learn that one of the "PubLIZity" girls, "Pretty Liz" (played by Jenny Slate) is pregnant which makes "Liz" (Kroll) spin out of control; Kroll's delinquent teenage character "C-Czar" gets sent off to "Dad Academy;" "Gil" and "George" reunite to pull another "Too Much Tuna" prank; and prepare yourself for "Cake Train." Guest stars in the first episode include Bill Burr, Will Forte, John Mulaney, Chelsea Peretti ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") and Jenny Slate.
Joining Kroll for the second season of "Kroll Show" are a roster of well-known actors and comedians including Bill Burr, Andy Daly, Jon Daly, Nathan Fielder, Will Forte, Jon Heder, Pete Holmes, Jason Mantzoukas, Andy Milonakis, John Mulaney, ADAM PALLY, Jordan Peele, Chelsea Peretti, Katy Perry, Craig Robinson and Jenny Slate, who showcase their comedic abilities when they make guest appearances and add an element of surprise, with fans never knowing who will pop up next.

Not just a sketch show, the series is ultimately Kroll's smart and absurd take on of-the-moment pop culture topics like internet life, professional sports, nightclub culture and the television landscape.
