/// Ads for Comedy Central’s Kroll Show Imagine the Dumbest Award Show Ever
With those saucy Two Broke Girls hosting and a category that pits the Bible against Sharknado, the People's Choice Awards, airing live Wednesday night on CBS, should be a hoot. No, not really. It'll be a snoozefest. For a much more entertaining time, check out the Kroll Choice Awards, a Comedy Central-produced set of digital promos hyping the Jan. 14 second-season return of sketch comedy-based Kroll Show. The videos feature star-writer-producer Nick Kroll's coterie of ridiculous characters in a glitzy award-show setting, complete with J. Law tumble up the stairs, lord-and-savior shout outs, prodigious bling and false modesty. The cable channel execs said they wanted to trot out as many Kroll creations as possible, like gigolo Bobby Bottleservice and white-trash homie C-Czar, treating the characters' shows- within-a-show like award-worthy contenders. Alas, their statues are only make-believe. Kroll Show, known for its star cameos, will continue its relationship with Hollywood's honored crowd in season 2 with the likes of Amy Poehler, Will Forte, Seth Rogan, Lizzy Caplan and Zach Galifianakis.
