LIVE: Even though you likely best recognize Nick Kroll from roles in Date Night, Dinner for Schmucks and FX’s the League, it’s Nick Kroll the Standup Comedian who you’ll get to know best over the course of taping his hour-long special for Comedy Central at the Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight. His characters, like Jersey Shore-style meathead Bobby Bottleservice, should only arm up with repeated takes. Nick Kroll: Thank You Very Cool is at 7:30 and 10:30PM.
INSTITUTION: Anthology Film Archives has been preserving and promoting indie and avant-garde cinema for four whole decades.
