Comedian and Grade-A weirdo Nick Kroll debuted his new sketch comedy show, the appropriately titled Kroll Show, last night on Comedy Central.
And if this clip—a riff on Degrassi called Wheels Ontario—is any indication, I am going to love this show.
There are so many sendups of Canadian clichés in this three-and-a-half minute clip that you'll go dizzy trying to count them all.
Among the highlights:
Everyone wears red and white.
There is a reference to a poutine dance.
Kroll's mom, played by the always welcome Kathryn Hahn, gives him a loonie to buy himself a "bahhg of malk".
And everyone sounds as absurd as I do when I'm making fun of Ontario accents.
My only quibble: why are the children in school on Victoria Day? Ah well, as long as they remember to put some money in the Queen's Jar for good luck.
