Versatile comedian Nick Kroll made an exciting announcement on last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. Comedy Central has renewed his sketch comedy series Kroll Show for a third season. “Nick has gone so deep into his characters we’re worried about his mental health if we didn’t pick up a third season,” said Comedy Central President of Original Programming Kent Alterman. Kroll will continued to be paid to pop bottles with Bobby Bottleservce for another year. Kroll Show airs on Tuesday nights at 10:30pm EST.
Kroll took to Twitter to confirm the news and in doing do, made a reference to Dave Chappelle’s infamous break with Comedy Central. Without telling anyone, Chappelle retreated to South Africa one day after Comedy Central started promoting the start of Chappelle’s Show’s third season. Eventually the veteran comedian admitted the pressure of a $50 million contract was too much to take and he set out for a “spiritual retreat.” Kroll’s tweet is below.
#Krollshow has been picked up for Season 3. Packin my bags for South Africa!
