Nick Kroll and Bo Burnham: A thread published on Twitter on 5/2/22

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

So, a lot of people saw the pics yesterday of Ted's Brunch for comedians but don't know who the man with the green jacket is.

Bo and Nick have been friends for many years and have collaborated in the past.

Let's dive in!

The earliest example I can find of the two interacting is when Bo cameoed on Nick's show (more info below).

Another funny tweet was one where Bo photoshopped Nick onto a pair of sneakers as a joke.

While they were often in the same comedy circle, Bo and Nick first worked together on Kroll Show.

In two S3 episodes ("The Commonwealth Games" and "The Time of My Life"), Bo plays a character named Diz who, is "a street rat from London who may or may not have stolen a piano."

Next, they have supported each other by attending movie premieres.

Nick was at the ones for Rough Night and for Eighth Grade.

And here's Nick with Bo and Lorene at the Independent Spirit Awards (which he hosted with John Mulaney in 2017 and 2018).

Here's another event they did together (probably around 2018? If someone has more info, please let me know).

Finally, they have performed at the Largo together numerous times, most recently in July 2021 after Inside came out.

(bonus Jerrod Carmichael in the first pic!)

And Nick left him a very funny reply when Bo posted the description for his new special on May 28, 2021:

That's all for now. I can't wait to see what they work on next!
