Comedian Nick Kroll's new sketch show, appropriately titled Kroll Show, makes its debut Wednesday, Jan. 16 on The Comedy Network. That's the same night it debuts on its U.S. network of origin, Comedy Central.
Notable to Canadians is that one of the running skits in the first episode of Kroll Show is a fictional series called Wheels Ontario. It's a takeoff on the Degrassi TV franchise.
Kroll is an American, best known for his on-screen role in The League, his voice-over work in various projects, and episodic appearances in series such as Community and Parks and Recreation. So what's with the Degrassi fascination?
"Well, that I'll throw to Jon Daly," Kroll says. "Jon Daly (co-star and supervising producer of Kroll Show) and Joe Mande are responsible for writing that sketch."
