Kroll Show (Ruxin from The League)

There is a free preview of Nick Kroll new show on iTunes.

Its basically a skit comedy show with a couple of the skits recurring throughout the show. There were a couple of funny moments but one of the recurring skits really killed it for me. Kroll makes on hideously disgusting woman and he was dressed as one for half the show. He'd have made a bad Kid In The Hall.

Maybe you guys will like it more than I though.

I've seen Kroll's stand up. His actual stand up material is funny, but his skits were fucking awful.

His characters are mostly annoying.

Saw an ad for it, and it honestly looked like he was a doing a skit of a bad ad.

It looked like a sketches from the mind of Dee from It's Always Sunny in Philly. Not the actress, the character.

Re: Kroll Show (Ruxin from The League)

He's the least funny actor & character in the League, so it'll be no surprise this sucks.

He may not be the best actor, but I think his character is hilarious. Maybe Taco and Raffi are funnier at times, but only in small doses. I think the problem might be that he is perfect for the dry, sarcastic, and mildly evil Ruxin but not so much beyond that.

Threadjack to discuss other work done by "The League" guys...if you're a podcast listener, highly recommend "How Did This Get Made?" with Paul Scheer (Andre) and Jason Mantzoukas (Rafi), plus Scheer's wife.

Re: Kroll Show (Ruxin from The League)

I liked the Wheels stuff and the random mix tape, but the annoying blonde girl was awful and Sex in the City for Dudes is a great idea that literally goes nowhere and has no relevance to it's title and subject matter, AT ALL. horrible.

It's awful.




It's Tim & Eric except it's not even occasionally funny.

I didn't make it past the first commercial break, and I think he's really funny on The League. Remember, most networks will pick the funniest episodes to air first for a new comedy show.

I just found this last night, and will download some of them, but do you need to watch the movie when you are listening to the podcast, or just have seen it recently? Some of the podcasts seem long so I thought it might be a synched up type of thing...

No they don't unfortunately, most networks air the pilot first regardless of quality. It's one reason why so many people tuned out of New Girl and Mindy Project right off the bat.

I've enjoyed all of the episodes and had only seen a few of the films discussed.

Re: Kroll Show (Ruxin from The League)

I like Kroll and think that The League is a great show. But this was like Kroll's standup/skit special. The characters are very aggravating and unredeemable, and there's too much else on TV to be watching this.

I'll check in while channel surfing. Maybe it will get better.
