Watch Nick Kroll and John Mulaney prank Paul Feig with too much tuna

Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland, the aging New York cutups portrayed by comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney respectively, have been delighting audiences for generations with their devilish antics on Comedy Central’s Kroll Show and the new live spectacular, Oh, Hello, currently making the rounds in Los Angeles and Chicago. But for those who still need more Faizon and St. Geegland in their lives, the bewigged duo have made available a never-before-seen sketch in which Ghostbusters reboot director Paul Feig is wrapped up in their nonsense. The clip in question is presented as an episode of their piscine-based prank show, Too Much Tuna. The very title of the series gives away the basic premise: The (supposedly) unsuspecting victim is presented with an absurdly generous tuna sandwich, one piled high with saltwater finfish, and the hosts sit back and watch the madness ensue.

The thing is, madness doesn’t really ensue this time. At first, Feig is utterly unfazed by the ridiculously proportioned tuna sandwich, necessitating a second take. Along the way, the comedy veteran talks about his past experiences in television and film. The hosts manage to determine that Feig directed neither Stir Crazy nor Bulworth. He did, however, create Freaks And Geeks, a program of which Kroll and Mulaney seem only dimly aware. “Oh, Freaky Freezes,” enthuses the latter. One aspect of Feig’s career that comes up in the course of the discussion is his years spent as an actor. His very earliest IMDb credit is appearing as “Ron” in a 1986 episode of The Facts Of Life called “The Ratings Game.” Feig seems on the precipice of telling an anecdote about Cloris Leachman, but his hosts are altogether too fixated on the tuna sandwich to care.
