    kroll show is best sketch comedy show ever and my favorite show to watch. every single moment is clever and hilarious. I can’t imagine that it isn’t obvious to Comedy Central “brass” that kroll show is cult classic material that will only grow in popularity and it must be renewed for years to come. if it was on Butt F Egypt Network I would find it and DVR it forever. come on Comedy Central. wtf!! this show IS the goods!

    I love this show. I think it’s so funny and so creative. The characters are hysterical and the fact that some of them stick around from episode to episode is great. Not to mention the cameo’s from other comedians. It’s really well done. I love Amy Schumer’s new show too but I like this one slightly better.

    I’m tickled pink that there’s going to be a second season! Go Comedy Central!!

    It’d be great if they would consistently air the replay of it right after the Colbert Report… that’s the only time slot where I could watch this.

    I hated The Krill Show at first. Then one day I was high as ****, it came on, and it was amazing. I look forward to the new season.

    Kroll show is hilarious if you actually listen to the script it is absolutely irate and insane. Each role he plays portrays some of the funniest comedy ive ever seen. if you dont like it, i advise u to watch the episodes ever; it is a lot to take in. once you realize the comedy and actually comprehend all of the personas it is incredibly amusing. love this show a lot

    what the **** are you talking about? kroll is hillarious and you prbly dont get his jokes because 90% of people watchin his show are 10 years old, he makes fun of tv shows that every guy hates and everything he makes fun of is completely true and totally original. Its a new show, give it time and i assure you kroll will be one of the top shows on comedy central as it is pretty much already.

    Please tell me.this is a joke. Only way it got good ratings is because people were too baked after tosh, or workaholics to change the channel. The world is going straight douchebag. I would rather watch a group of bums have a soupkitchen in a prius. It’s not funny. How can this be?
