Kroll Show, the Comedy Central series starring Nick Kroll, begins its second season tonight, and it promises many upcoming big-name guest stars, including Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, and one person who isn't a comedian: Katy Perry. So how did she end up being one of this season's guests? Kroll says it all started on Twitter.
"She tweeted that she liked the show," Kroll tell the Huffington Post. "We have a couple of friends in common, so I reached out through them to her. I said, 'If you ever want to do anything on the show, we’d love to have you.'" Turns out Katy did want to do something on the show: appear in the recurring sketch pubLIZity, which is reality show spoof about two publicists, both named Liz.
"She was very funny and professional. She’s got a real sense of humor about herself and was down to play with us," Kroll says of Katy. "There’s actually a picture of us online from when she was leaving her trailer to go to the set. I was dressed as Liz, and like a dutiful publicist, I made sure to shield her from the paparazzi."
No word on when Katy's episode will air.
