Transcript

00:00
Oh hello, I'm Nick Kroll.
00:01
My sleeves are rolled up at an uncomfortable length.
00:04
I'm going online to answer some questions on the Internet.
00:08
This is Actually Me.
00:13
Alright, Twitter.
00:17
Hey Nick Kroll, I am seriously contemplating
00:18
dressing as Gil Faizon for Halloween.
00:20
Can you ask him for tips on pulling off that look for me?
00:24
Okay, I would like to do that,
00:26
but Gil is currently locked himself into a Porta Potty.
00:30
The key to a Gil Faizon costume is corduroy,
00:33
pulling your shirt through your zipper,
00:36
as if you zipped it up in a hurry but do it every day.
00:39
Duct tape on your sports sandals,
00:42
baggy corduroys really worn out around the knee and the tush
00:47
like a worn out muppet.
00:49
Leather jacket.
00:50
Really let those shoulder pads in the leather jacket speak,
00:53
but let's let them sag
00:55
like they've been worn for a long time.
00:57
An I voted sticker somewhere on the leather jacket.
01:01
But again, that I voted sticker,
01:03
you want from an election a long time ago.
01:05
And for the wig, color-wise what you want from the wig
01:08
is for it to look like someone ashed their cigarette
01:11
into a bowl of creamed corn.
01:14
It's actually me.
01:16
I want to know what had to be censored on Goldberg's door.
01:19
Well, it's a picture from an upcoming episode
01:22
that hadn't aired yet.
01:23
I think it's the outcome of the 2018 midterm elections,
01:28
which we kind of know about at Big Mouth.
01:30
Animation takes so long that you have to work ahead.
01:33
So they gave us those results.
01:35
But we can't reveal that.
01:36
Also, let's just look at my hair real quick.
01:39
Look at those edges.
01:40
Shout out to Rudy, my barber.
01:42
Keep those edges toight.
01:44
Submit.
01:45
How to convince my close minded friends to watch Big Mouth?
01:47
This is a question I ask myself all the time.
01:49
How do I get my close minded friends to watch Big Mouth?
01:51
Because I'm trying to get my friends to watch it.
01:53
Oh, I don't know.
01:54
Jordan Peele, Jenny Slate, Jessi Klein, Jason Mantzoukas,
02:00
Maya Rudolph, Fred Armisen, John Mulaney, Andrew Rannells,
02:05
Richard Kind, Gina Rodriguez, David Thewlis.
02:09
I mean, these are all people
02:10
who will not answer my text messages.
02:13
Quora.
02:14
That's a weird word, Quora.
02:16
What are Nick Kroll's best characters?
02:19
My favorite Nick Kroll character is probably Nick Kroll.
02:22
Let's see, when I'm doing Big Mouth, I am the voice of Nick.
02:25
I'm also the Hormone Monster.
02:28
Hey, GQ-viewing audience.
02:29
Why don't you touch yourself right now?
02:31
I'm also Coach Steve.
02:33
So you know, GQ are two letters I'm not really familiar with
02:38
the difference between them.
02:40
Oh my God, I'm also Lola.
02:42
I don't like GQ.
02:44
I love Pop Sugar.
02:46
I'm also the ladybug that calls out things
02:49
when we can't figure out how to end a scene,
02:52
just like this bit.
02:54
Wikipedia.
02:55
Is Wikipedia different than Wikifeet?
02:58
I donate to Wikifeet.
03:00
Kroll and Mulaney developed Faizon and St. Geegland
03:02
after watching two men wearing turtlenecks and blazers
03:04
at The Strand bookstore purchase
03:06
separate copies of Alan Alda's book.
03:08
They followed the men into a coffee shop
03:09
and soon decided to host a comedy show as those characters.
03:12
I want to clear up a little thing.
03:14
What happened, we went into the coffee shop,
03:17
and then the coffee shop was struck by lightning
03:20
and we had a body switching thing.
03:22
John and I have been rolling around as these old men
03:24
for the last 12, 15 years,
03:27
and those old men are rolling around New York as us.
03:31
I assume that when me and John meet
03:33
the two men who we body switched with,
03:36
I assume that one, it will be at a Steely Dan concert
03:38
and two, our bodies will switch,
03:40
then we'll go to a deli and not eat tuna
03:44
because I'm actually allergic to tuna fish.
03:46
Fun fact, I've been pranking people with too much tuna,
03:49
and if I eat even one
03:51
ice cream scooper dollop worth of tuna fish,
03:55
my face will turn bright red
03:57
and I'll be itching my skin off.
04:00
Instagram, here we go.
04:02
Oh hello, who is this?
04:05
Do you have bronzer and eyeliner on?
04:07
Fair question.
04:08
I was at the Cannes Film Festival
04:11
and a Russian women did my makeup.
04:14
It's possible that she put bronzer on my face,
04:17
and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a little eyeliner
04:20
in there as well.
04:21
You can't control Russians when they do your makeup.
04:23
I guess my question for theoriginalecs is,
04:26
how do you feel about the bronzer and eyeliner?
04:29
Because I'm not hating it.
04:30
I've stuffed my pants as well.
04:32
You can't tell that here,
04:33
but I stuck a whole baguette down the left side of my pants.
04:37
Nick Kroll, when's Big Mouth season two,
04:39
and most important question,
04:40
will there be more Nathan Fillion?
04:42
There is no Big Mouth without Nathan Fillion,
04:45
and there is no Nathan Fillion without Big Mouth,
04:49
but also watch The Rookie on ABC this fall.
04:52
Nathan Fillion might be the only actual
04:55
celebrity playing himself on Big Mouth.
04:58
What a handsome beefy Canadian man.
05:01
Even more Twitter.
05:03
Pilar Valdes.
05:05
Anybody else concerned about how much time Nick Kroll
05:07
spends on Insta?
05:08
I'm just saying, he likes a lot of posts.
05:10
I am concerned about how much time I'm spending on Insta.
05:12
Pilar, you and I are on the same page, sister.
05:15
I never think about the fact
05:16
that if I like a post, other people see it.
05:19
But I think we should all be liking everybody's posts more.
05:22
People are putting themselves out there.
05:23
It's very vulnerable.
05:24
When you post something on Instagram, it's vulnerable.
05:26
We're looking at likes, we're looking at views.
05:29
Social media is a constant living nightmare
05:32
that we're all going through.
05:34
Just like everybody's shit always
05:36
and everyone will feel so much better.
05:39
Why is Nick Kroll good at being the bad guy in movies?
05:42
I guess I have a face that people just look at
05:45
and be like, I don't like that guy.
05:46
I don't think I want to root for that guy.
05:49
Posted.
05:49
Seven years ago, I was at Mas Malo
05:51
where you were celebrating your birthday.
05:54
The next day you tweeted that somebody stole your presents.
05:56
I was the only Mexican at the place
05:58
so I think I need to let you know that it wasn't me.
06:00
Happy birthday, by the way.
06:02
That truly was such a bummer.
06:05
I had a birthday party.
06:06
My girlfriend had just broken up with me.
06:09
I had all my presents in a little bag by the bar.
06:13
I went outside.
06:14
I came back in, someone had stolen my presents.
06:17
My friends gave me a ride home, and I was drunk
06:20
and crying that my presents had been stolen.
06:24
So Aldo, I'm happy to cross you off the list.
06:28
Alright, well, this has been so fun.
06:30
I'm gonna go outside now, buy a ice cream cone,
06:33
and feed it to a dog on the street
06:35
because nothing's funnier than watching a dog
06:37
eat soft serve.
06:38
But it won't be chocolate
06:39
because I don't want the dog to die.
06:41
Goodbye everybody.
