Nick Kroll and John Mulaney to play animated teenagers for Netflix

Kroll Show

Nick Kroll wrapped up his Comedy Central series Kroll Show last year, and more recently has been pulling tuna-related pranks along with John Mulaney as part of Oh, Hello. But now he’s finally making his big return to television—or at least streaming television. That’s because Netflix has just given a series order to Big Mouth, an animated comedy co-crated by Kroll and Family Guy writer (and Kroll’s longtime friend) Andrew Goldberg.

According to a press release, Big Mouth is “edgy” and “surreal,” and it focuses on Kroll and Golberg’s “teenaged adventures in puberty.” Kroll will be playing the kid version of himself, with John Mulaney playing the kid Goldberg, and their voices will be heard alongside people like Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate, and Inside Amy Schumer’s Jessi Klein. In a statement, Kroll said that he “can’t wait to tell all the stories that make up the glorious nightmare of puberty.”


Big Mouth is set to premiere on Netflix at some point in 2017.
