big mouth trailer

Puberty is the worst, but at least you can laugh about it thanks to Nick Kroll‘s new animated comedy series, Big Mouth.

The Netflix comedy follows the pitfalls of growing up as a teen dealing with raging hormones in the American suburbs, and features some of today’s funniest comedians voicing the animated teenagers. Netflix has released a few videos teasing the hormone monsters and “monstresses” plaguing these young teens, but the official trailer for Big Mouth has just dropped.

Big Mouth Teasers - Jerry Seinfeld Stand-Up

Netflix has plenty of original programming coming to the streaming service in September, and teasers for two of their biggest comedy offerings have just hit the web.

First up, Nick Kroll is trying his hand at animated comedy with a new series called Big Mouth that he co-created with Andrew Goldberg, which focuses on the nightmare of going through puberty as a teen, envisioning hormones as giant monsters who are bad influences on teenagers. It looks delightfully twisted and weird for a coming-of-age series.

Additionally, Netflix has also announced the premiere date for Jerry Seinfeld‘s new stand-up special, which is part of the big deal the comedian struck with the streaming service for several specials as well as his series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Along with the date, they’ve also released several clips for you to enjoy.

Portlandia Season 8

It’s a damn shame, but the comedy sketch series Portlandia is coming to an end after being renewed for an eighth and final season on IFC. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have assembled a cavalcade of hilarious characters over the years, and they’ve brought some of their best comedian friends into the show with them to make it even better. The final season will be no different, and it will features a crossover that no one was expecting, but everyone should be excited about.

Two of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s most favorite characters are Tony and Candace, who work at a feminist bookstore in Portland, and this season they’ll be joined by none other than Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland, better known as Nick Kroll and John Mulaney from both the Oh, Hello comedy special on Netflix and The Kroll Show.

Big Mouth Animated Series

Comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney have been friends and collaborators for a long time. In addition to having a history in sketch comedy, the two also teamed up for a series of sketches on The Kroll Show called “Oh, Hello,” which eventually became a stage show that toured the country this year. Now they’re teaming up again.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney will voice the two lead characters in Big Mouth, a new animated series that Netflix just picked up. The series won’t be following their “Oh, Hello” alter egos Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland (seen above), but instead will see the two comedians as teenagers Nick and Andrew as they have various adventures while going through puberty.

The Kroll Show - John Mulaney - Nick Kroll

When Kroll Show was still on Comedy Central, one of the best recurring segments was a little prank show called Too Much Tuna, featuring Gil Faizon (Nick Kroll) and George St. Geegland (John Mulaney) — the stars of Oh, Hello, another recurring segment on the sketch comedy series. And now these two charismatic Upper West Side artists are bringing their talents Off Broadway.

Mulaney and Kroll have just announced a new Oh, Hello stage show in the form of a new play written by Faizon and St. Geegland called We’re Us, You’re You, Let’s Talk. This sounds like it could be one of the greatest events of our time. Read More »
