'The Lance Krall Show' Set to Premiere on Spike TV

Fast-Paced Sketch Comedy Series Debuts on Monday, April 18

Stars Lance Krall, Best Known to Viewers As Kip from Spike TV's Original Hit Comedy/Reality Series 'The Joe Schmo Show'

NEW YORK, April 8 -- What happens when Spike TV gets a bunch of talented comedians, who also happen to be good friends together, gives them a camera and free license to create whatever they want for a new television series? You get the original non-scripted sketch comedy series "The Lance Krall Show" that premieres on Monday, April 18 (11:05-11:30 PM, ET/PT). Lance Krall is not only the star of this new series that bears his name, but he is also the series creator, writer, director and executive producer.

With innovative comedic abilities including dead-on accurate impersonations and extreme physical humor, Lance Krall and his hilarious ensemble cast fuse humor, parody, biting satire and a host of wacky original characters to create a show that stretches the bounds of sketch comedy and what a non-scripted television series can be.

"Lance has incredible comedic abilities, which was clearly evident to us in his portrayal of Kip on our hit original series 'The Joe Schmo Show'," says Kevin Kay, Executive Vice President of Production and Programming for Spike TV. "His guy brand of humor and his natural comedy instincts are right on target for our audience."

"The Lance Krall Show" features fast pace bits revolving around roommates, samurai, first dates, refugees, the Mafia, televangelists, musical numbers, dead pets, amateur reporters, prank phone-calls as celebrities, fake psychics, hot chicks from outer-space, ninjas battling lunch ladies and tennis pros battling archers, among others. In addition to Krall, the cast includes Sarah Baker, Phil Cater, Annie Humphrey, Rob Poynter, Michael Sweeney, Loren Tarquinio and Anna Vocino.

In the premiere episode (April 18), entitled "Love and Peanut Butter", a cast member is fired within the first five minutes of the series. Impersonating actor Christopher Walken, Lance prank calls an actual restaurant and barks orders at a very flustered manager. Also featured, an amateur reporter who shows up too late to catch the action; Trik*D! -- think Punk*d, only stupider and a guy so desperate that he has to rent a friend.

Lance Krall is a founding member of Atlanta's most popular improv comedy group, The Whole World Theater. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, Krall was cast by Steve Martin as a series regular on his variety show "The Downer Channel" for NBC. Other television appearances include "Monk" and "The Cindy Margolis Show." However, Krall might best be known to television viewers for his role as "Kip, The Gay Guy" on Spike TV's original comedy/reality series, "The Joe Schmo Show." Krall also has made his own directorial debut, the short film "Party Animals" about a group of wannabes in Hollywood. The film premiered at the LA International Short Film Festival and at 2004's Slamdance in Park City, Utah.
