    I just can’t believe my eyes! …. People (real people?) are actually calling this burning dog **** fungus of a show GOOD?!?! hmmmm.
    Just another step leap & stumble down the hole of mediocrity & steaming the ever grimy window of our culture – the TV
    It’s gotta be his own batch of engineered test tube babies that go online post rosy reviews for this toilet clog of a show show that has about the same laugh factor as a sack of drowning kittens (don’t worry the kittens will be fine – in never having to endure the Kroll Show).
    It’s basically the same screamingly unfunny screaming characters in different wigs every episode or lame over the top skits that are attempts at making fun of shows that other people already slammed years ago.
    I don’t hate Nick Kroll. he’s a decent enough dude and an alright writer I guess, but writing for other more talented performers – with definitely more depth and acting chops than he can handle
    As much as I’m burned out on reruns of Chapel show – sorry, I can’t stomach this not a single one of my diverse set of friends has any appetite for such lukewarm schlock – Just tries way to hard and that’s probably what makes it so sucky – strange because I hate me tha bland Portlandia for the polar opposite reason of just being so blahhhh

    One of the worse shows on comedy central. If Jeff Dunham wasn’t on comedy central this show would be the worse
