Nick Kroll: Little Big Boy is a raunchy yet fun stand-up special that won’t be for everyone but was for me.
Netflix Comedy Special Nick Kroll: Little Big Boy will be released on Netflix on September 27, 2022.
We are back with another stand-up comedy special review, and this time, we are looking at someone making their Netflix stand-up special debut. Nick Kroll: Little Big Boy is Kroll’s first special on the streaming giant. Is it worth checking out? Let’s dive in.
One of the things I expected from this special was Kroll to be raunchy and even a bit gross. So I wasn’t surprised he kicked off the special with a joke about crapping his pants when he was a kid. He followed this joke with a story about his first love, at 32 years old, who also was the first time someone broke his heart simultaneously because Kroll mentions he was a bit of a late bloomer in life.
Kroll is a body language and facial expression comedian, which I believe isn’t an easy thing to be. You have to be able to have the facial expressions or body movements to amplify your already potentially funny jokes, and it’s a heck of a multi-task. But, not to my surprise, Kroll perfected this throughout every joke. Because it’s funny, sometimes, when you have a possibly okay joke, it can turn into a better joke with the perfect expression or body language.
In the trailer for the special, we saw Kroll tackle moms and how rough they have it. The entire bit is my favorite part of the whole special. It’s hilarious how much he nailed this on the head about how moms must try harder at not being so available for their kids. When you watch this and hear this entire bit, I promise you it will end up being relatable on so many levels.
Overall, from fart jokes to diarrhea stories, Kroll’s comedy will not be for everyone because not everyone will dig the “raunchy” humor he brings to the table. However, if that is your cup of tea, you will love what Kroll brings to the table. While every joke doesn’t land, Nick Kroll: Little Big Boy does have you laughing for the majority of the time. I hope we get a round two with the duo of Kroll and Netflix.
