We here at New Times would humbly like to add a new phrase to the lexicon: Nick Krolling. It’s like Rick Rolling, only instead of Rick Astley, you’re being punked by comedian and actor Nick Kroll. Here’s an example: “Lol but serously first and firstmostly vodka Jesus n Revenge r like in addishun to being holy and as well as rules to liv by hahaha.” That, friends, is a YouTube comment, and it was posted in all its grammatically incorrect, nonsensical glory by a Jersey meathead named Bobby Bottleservice -- who also happens to be a character played by Kroll -- on a video of Kroll pretending to be Bobby Bottleservice. That’s some real meta shit, man.
Kroll breaks out his stand-up and characters at 8 p.m. Saturday, November 23, at Talking Stick Resort, 9800 East Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale. If you want to get Nick Krolled, call 480-850-7734 or visit www.talkingstickresort.com for more.
