  • Welcome to the show, my friend.

  • -Thank you. -Uh, I'm not gonna lie.

  • This is one of the stranger movies that I've watched,

  • -and I enjoyed it. -Oh, good.

  • -I really did. -Uh, thank you.

  • Because-because it's a... it's... For...

  • There were moments when I was watching it, I was like, "Wait."

  • -When it starts, it's like, "Is this a documentary?" -Yeah.

  • And I was like, "No, this is..." I was like, "That's Nick Kroll."

  • -Yes. -And then the... and then the film goes on a...

  • Just-just to help me understand here...

  • This is a movie about you...

  • -You're playing a dentist? You... -Correct.

  • -I'm not an actual dentist in real life. -Right.

  • You're playing a dentist who is at the Winter Olympics.

  • -Yes. -But all of this actually happened at the Winter Olympics?

  • Yeah, so, um, I made this movie with a-a couple--

  • Alexi Pappas and Jeremy Teicher.

  • -Alexi is a Summer Olympian. -Uh-huh.

  • Uh, she ran at Rio.

  • Uh, they got a grant from the Olympic Committee

  • to go and, uh, make some art at the Winter games.

  • Um, they brought me in, uh, to be a part of it,

  • and I helped them sort of shape the script a little bit.

  • About two weeks before the Olympics, I signed on to do it.

  • Then we flew to Korea and shot a movie,

  • just the three of us, no crew, inside of the Olympics, be...

  • -No... Wait. No crew? -No crew. It was just the three of us.

  • -(laughter) -So I was lugging a dentist chair

  • around Korea, uh, because we had no crew,

  • because we were shooting inside the Olympic Village.

  • -Right. -So they don't give out passes

  • to very many people to get inside of the Olympic Village.

  • -Right. -Because we were part of the Olympics,

  • we had access to elements of the Olympic games

  • -that nobody's ever really seen before. -I've-I've never

  • seen pieces of the Olympic Village

  • the way I saw them in this film. It... Like,

  • -I've watched documentaries about the Olympics. -Mm.

  • -I've seen behind the scenes, before the events. -Mm-hmm.

  • You-you never see the Olympic Village,

  • -like, where the athletes just eat. -Yeah, we were...

  • You have real athletes in the movie, as well, like...

  • I'm the only... I mean, Alexi's an actor as...

  • in addition to being an Olympian.

  • Um, every other actor in the film is an actual Olympian

  • -who was there competing at the time. -Wow!

  • So those guys I was interviewing are real snowboarders

  • who are on the Olympic team,

  • and I'm a dentist giving them dental exams

  • -and interviewing them about their experiences. -(laughter)

  • Like, one girl had been called up.

  • She didn't make the Olympics,

  • and then got a call halfway through the Olympics

  • that someone had been injured, and she was getting called up

  • to then appear at the Olympic Games,

  • -and showed up in the middle. -Wait. So,

  • help me understand this, though.

  • So, people there thought you were a real dentist?

  • -(laughs) No, no. -(laughter)

  • Uh, although, I get it. If they saw me, they'd be like,

  • "Yeah, that guy looks like a dentist."

  • Uh... no, it was a--

  • No, they knew, they knew that they were part of a,

  • -a-a fictional film. -Got it, got it, got it, all right,

  • -all right, cool. -But... uh, but, well,

  • but I was also dressed as a volunteer

  • -in that volunteer jacket, um... -Yes, right.

  • So, we would be in the middle of shooting scenes,

  • and then, people would come up and it be, like,

  • an emotional scene, and then someone would come up

  • and be like, "Can you tell me how to get to the dining hall?"

  • -'Cause I looked like a volunteer. -Right.

  • And, so, we would sort of be like, "Uh, I think you go left,"

  • And then I'll be like, "I don't know what we're gonna do

  • in our relationship," you know, because we were...

  • You know, 'cause our direct-- Jeremy, who was shooting it,

  • and was also the sound man and also the camera man

  • and all the bags on and shooting the film,

  • he was, like, on a long lens, like, 30-40 feet away,

  • so people didn't know that we were even filming the movie.

  • -That is insane. -So, it was very easy to drop in, but--

  • And, also, we had no crew, so nobody quite knew

  • what we were doing.

  • This is an insane way to shoot a movie.

  • It was an insane way to spend, like, two and a half weeks.

  • -Right. -It was so cold, it was insane.

  • What did, what did it feel like to be, definitively,

  • -the least athletic person... -(laughter)

  • -in, like, a mile radius? -Uh...

  • Like, everyone else there's an athlete, everyone.

  • -and I mean, everyone. -Everywhere, yeah.

  • -And then there's you. -Well, Mike Pe--

  • -Mike Pence was there, as well. -(laughter)

  • -Uh... -(applause and clapping)

  • -He was at the Olympics! -He was.

  • -Yes, he was, okay. -Yeah.

  • Looking thick, looking thick.

  • Um, he can feel you saying that, stop it.

  • -Um... let's talk a little bit about Big Mouth. -Yeah.

  • One of my favorite shows of all time,

  • animated series on Netflix.

  • And, I remember when I first started watching it,

  • I was like, "Oh, it's, this is just gonna be a cartoon.

  • -There's just gonna be funny jokes in it." -Mm.

  • It-it's actually a really educational show that I wish

  • I got the chance to watch as a prepubescent teen

  • or even younger, 'cause, I mean, like, you're teaching kids

  • about sex, you're teaching kids about, like, hormones,

  • -growing up, like, you know, gender dynamics, -Mm-hmm.

  • everything-- Uh, the show's just been renewed for a third season.

  • -Yeah. -Oh, three more seasons, actually.

  • -Three more seasons, yes. -Congratulations.

  • -Thank you very much, thank you. -Three more seasons.

  • -(applause and cheering) -Thank you.

  • I'm truly fascinated about how you even began to think about

  • a show doing what it's doing right now.

  • Uh, well, you know, part of the way I thought of it

  • was I didn't, um, in that my partners,

  • Andrew Goldberg and-and, uh, Mark Levin

  • -and Jen Flackett brought me the idea. -Right.

  • Andrew and I had grown up together, uh,

  • since first grade we've known each other.

  • He went on to become a writer for Family Guy.

  • They brought me the idea about a show about two kids

  • going through puberty based on me and Andrew's life.

  • And, I was a very late bloomer, he was a very early bloomer.

  • And, uh, like, he-- (laughs) his parents waxed his upper lip

  • -when he had like, when he was... -Oh, lord.

  • And, so, and they waxed his upper lip and pulled it off,

  • and, so, for years, he couldn't grow any facial hair.

  • He could grow a full beard by the age of, like, 13,

  • and nothing here, so we called it his "reverse Hitler."

  • -Um... and, -(Noah laughing)

  • so, we figured it was, it just felt, like, ripe

  • -to do a show about puberty. -Right, right.

  • And, then it sort of, as we continued to grow it,

  • realized it's really this show not only about these two boys,

  • but about all, bunch of different boys and girls

  • and-and sexual development and adolescence

  • and puberty on a much grander scale of what we're all

  • going through, and the things that happen to us in that

  • period of life, how they then stay with us.

  • Like, you know, we have these hormone monsters,

  • -and in season two, we have a shame wizard. -Yep.

  • Uh, and-and these things are foundational

  • for who we become for the rest of our lives.

  • I-I honestly hope that there would be schools in America

  • where they would get kids to watch the show

  • as part of their curriculum, 'cause I think it's

  • great sex-ed and it's fun if you're a kid.

  • Like, it's not, it's not, you now what I mean? -Yeah.

  • It's not, it's not soft in any way, it's really hardcore,

  • -Yeah. -but you-you learn things that you think about as a kid.

  • -Yeah. -Like, I thought about... where the shame monster pops out

  • -when this kid is masturbating all the time. -Yeah.

  • And I was, like, anyone who's masturbated knows that feeling

  • -Yeah. -of just, like, "Oh, shame on you!"

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • And, uh, I was actually talking to Mike Pence about that and...

  • -uh... -(laughter)

  • Don't do it! Don't do it!

  • Thank you so much for coming on the show.

  • -Thanks for having me. -Olympic Dreams will be

  • in theaters and on demand February 14.

  • Nick Kroll, everybody!

Welcome to the show, my friend.
