Nick Kroll

Nick Kroll is a man of many talents. As an actor, he’s starred in comedies such as Billy Madison and The League, and has had his voice featured in commercials for tons of businesses. But Nick has a secret weapon: the ability to create content that speaks to a wide range of demographics.


Nick Kroll is an actor, writer and producer. He most recently co-created and voiced numerous roles on the Netflix animated series BIG MOUTH, which has been heralded by the Hollywood Reporter as "sweet, progressive and breathtakingly filthy,” and was nominated for an Annie Award for “Best General Audience Animated Television/Broadcast Production.” Nick can next be heard in SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2 and as ‘Uncle Fester’ in MGM’s THE ADDAMS FAMILY set to be released in October 2019. He also can be seen in MGM’s OPERATION FINALE opposite Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingley, and in Lionsgate’s UNCLE DREW. In January 2017, he wrapped his Broadway debut with the critical and financial hit ‘Oh, Hello on Broadway'. Recent film credits include Jeff Nichols’ critically acclaimed film LOVING, Seth Rogen’s SAUSAGE PARTY and Illumination’s SING. Nick had his own Comedy Central sketch show KROLL SHOW and starred as Ruxin in the hit FX show THE LEAGUE.

The comedians Nick Kroll and Jason Mantzoukas have been friends for nearly two decades—they met after orbiting each other in the fizzy New York comedy scene of the early two-thousands, and cemented their bond over sandwiches at an old-school diner in Manhattan. Kroll is best known as a co-creator, writer, and star of the adult animated series “Big Mouth,” in which he voices Nick Birch, a protagonist loosely based on his teen-age self, as well as a smorgasbord of tertiary characters, including a foul-mouthed ladybug, a box of tampons, and a chain-smoking Statue of Liberty. If Kroll is distinguished by his formidable vocal skills and talent for mimicry, Mantzoukas is striking for his physicality: onscreen, he nearly vibrates with pent-up energy, eyes wide and hair corkscrewing in all directions. He has carved out a niche for himself playing chaotic, borderline unsettling eccentrics like the ex-detective Adrian Pimento on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and the glitch-ridden Derek on “The Good Place.” (As he put it to me, and to the creators of one sitcom in which he was vying for a part, “I happen to play a great maniac.”) (Source: www.newyorker.com)


Nick Kroll is an actor, writer, producer and stand-up comedian from Rye, New York. He's currently seen in his critically acclaimed Comedy Central series KROLL SHOW, whose third and final season premieres January 13th, and starring as 'Ruxin' in the FXX hit series THE LEAGUE. You can also catch Kroll in his 2011 standup special THANK YOU VERY COOL or through his memorable guest starring roles on NEW GIRL, PARKS AND RECREATION,COMMUNITY and CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL. He also voiced the character of Stu on HBO's THE LIFE AND TIMES OF TIM. In 2013, Nick was honored with the BREAKOUT STAR OF THE YEAR award at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. He was also named to VARIETY'S 10 COMICS TO WATCH and BILLBOARD'S 'NEXT GEN' comedy issue. Nick's film credits include DATE NIGHT, GET HIM TO THE GREEK, A GOOD OLD FASHIONED ORGY and he plays the title role in the 2014 comedy ADULT BEGINNERS in which he also serves as Producer.

Outside of their rollicking, often ribald humor, Kroll and Mantzoukas are keen and generous conversationalists with a tight rapport: Mantzoukas will jump in quickly to add some forgotten detail, then back off, giving Kroll room to run. Since their early years in New York, the two have appeared together on numerous television shows, including “The League,” a comedy about the members of a fantasy-football league; “Kroll Show”; and, most recently, “Big Mouth,” which follows a group of middle-schoolers whose struggles with puberty are embodied (and exacerbated) by the crass, satyr-like “hormone monsters” that give voice to their basest thoughts and feelings. Even as the show pushes the boundaries of crudeness, it doesn’t shy away from depicting teen-agers’ most vulnerable moments. It’s also set itself apart from other animated series by allowing its characters to age, their bodies and relationships changing over time. In the latest season, which was released on Netflix earlier this month, Kroll and Mantzoukas play opposite each other as young lovers: Kroll as the brash yet insecure Lola Skumpy, and Mantzoukas as Jay Bilzerian, an aspiring magician who throws himself into sexual situations with abandon.
