Nick Kroll, star of Comedy Central’s Kroll Show and FX’s The League, will host the Gotham Independent Film Awards on Dec. 2 in New York. “I cannot wait to host the Gotham Awards as I’ve always wanted to meet Batman in person,” Kroll said in a statement. “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.”

The Gotham Awards are one of the season’s first major stops, with indies competing for top honors. Last year, Wes Anderson’s Moonlight Kingdom and Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts of the Southern Wild took home prizes. This year, 12 Years a Slave is a favorite to win Best Feature, and individual acting awards will be presented for the time.
