NEW YORK, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Actor, writer and comedian Nick Kroll is to serve as host of the 23rd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York, organizers announced Wednesday.
The ceremony is to take place Dec. 2 at Cipriani Wall Street in Manhattan.
"We are so thrilled that Nick Kroll will be hosting the Gotham Awards this year," Joana Vicente, executive director of Independent Filmmaker Project and the Made in New York Media Center by IFP, said in a statement. "Coming off an exciting year with a new Comedy Central series, and winning the Just for Laugh's Breakout Comedy Star of the Year award, his humor and talent are sure to make the Gotham's one of the most entertaining awards shows of the season."
"I cannot wait to host the Gotham Awards as I've always wanted to meet Batman in person," said Kroll. "This is just one example of the soon-to-be classic jokes I will bring to this celebrated event. Seriously, it's an honor to be asked by IFP."
Kroll can currently be seen in his Comedy Central series, "Kroll Show," which he created.
