Nick Kroll is getting his very own sketch series on Comedy Central. The Nick Show Kroll will be a combination of new characters and extant ones, including the Uggs-wearing Fabrice Fabrice (who thinks Star Jones "looks like a fat skeleton") and the Jersey Shore–ish Bobby Bottleservice (whose ideal date involves buying Ed Hardy shirts with "a dragon raping a lion on a skateboard"). The new show won't interfere with Kroll's role on The League so fret not, Ruxin fans. Comedy Central also picked up a still-untitled sketch series from MadTV vets Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Now all Comedy Central needs to do is officially renew Nick Swardson's Pretend Time, and we'll be in business. [CC Insider]
