Who Is Nick Kroll, Is He Dating Anyone & What Is His Net Worth?

Nick Kroll is undoubtedly a household name among contemporary comedy lovers. An American actor, comedian, writer, and producer, Kroll has proven himself to be a rising star in television entertainment. Nick has starred in numerous TV shows including Children’s Hospital, Parks and Recreations, and the hilarious Kroll Show. In all, however, his breakthrough came when he played Rodney Ruxin in The League.

Kroll has also worked as a writer and producer for many films and television shows. Despite coming from a background of massive wealth, the TV personality chose to build his fame and fortune through talent and hard work.

A Look At The Wealthy Family He Hails From

This actor’s family comes up whenever people discuss his net worth because he comes from a rich background. Nick is the son of an American billionaire named Jules Kroll; he founded Kroll Inc. in the early 1970s. The company which is a corporate risk and investigation firm has through the years, raked a massive fortune for the Kroll family while working for big names and probing high profile cases.

Marsh & McLennan acquired Kroll Inc. in 2004 for almost $2 billion but the family currently owns two other investigative companies; Kroll Bond Rating Agency and K2 Intelligence.

Although the financial status of Nick’s family, as far as we can tell, has nothing to do with the accomplishments of the actor’s career, many believe it has contributed to his net worth in some ways. Sometimes, Nick makes statements that suggest the speculation could be true. Nonetheless, he has insisted that he does not do comedy for the money but just for the passion.

How Nick Kroll Built His Fame and Net Worth 

Born as Nicholas J. Kroll on the 5th of June 1978 in Rye, New York, Nick Kroll launched his career in 2004. Despite being a history graduate, Kroll’s passion for show business lured him into pursuing a career in the field. Since he made his debut, paychecks from performing stand-up, hosting shows, acting, writing, and producing films have been the major source of his income

So far, Nick has appeared in almost a hundred movies and TV shows, with many of them recording great financial success and bringing much wealth to the actor. In 2010, Kroll was among the cast of Get Him To the Greek and Little Fockers. Being great financial successes, the movies impacted Kroll’s pocket significantly. After appearing in numerous other film roles, Nick landed a very rewarding voice role in Sausage Party, a well-received 2016 adult animated comedy film. The same year, he played another voice role in Sing, a musical comedy film that turned out to be a box office hit.

In 2017, Nick voiced Professor Poopypants in Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, another very successful comedy film. Two years later, the comedy actor lent his voice to the character of Sergei in yet another box office blast, The Secret Life of Pets 2. Other successful films he has starred in include Loving (2016) and Uncle Drew (2018).

Among the high-grossing television series are The Life & Times of Tim (2008-2012), Children’s Hospital (2008-2011), Family Guy (2013), and Parks and Recreation (2011-2015). While he played a recurring role in the first, he made guest appearances on the others. With these TV series recording high success, it must have had Nick smiling to the bank. His earnings from these shows were, however, nothing compared to what he earned for playing a major role (Rodney Ruxin) in the sitcom series, The League.

He also plays a variety of voice roles in Big Mouth, a successful animated sitcom series that has been airing since 2017. Nick has also made some decent cash from portraying Gil Faizon on Comedy Central’s The Oh, Hello Show.

In addition to that, Nick embarked on comedy tours with other comedians. Notable among then is his Glow in the Dark comedy tour which he embarked on alongside Aziz Ansari. He has as well performed regularly in theaters, especially at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC and LA.

As earlier mentioned, script-writing formed part of Nick Kroll’s career beginnings, with TV series like Human Giant and Chappelle’s Show being his first trials. The comedian would go on to co-write and co-produce several other successful works like Adult Beginners, The League, Kroll Show, and Big Mouth.

All these ventures put together, have earned Nick Kroll much wealth. His net worth as of 2020 is pegged at an estimated $10 million. Without a doubt, Nick’s career has been rewarding, can the same be said about his love life?

Nick was once in a relationship with fellow actor and comedian, Amy Poehler. Although Nick and Amy had known each other several years earlier, they only got closer and started dating in 2013 after co-starring in Parks and Recreation. Kroll met Poehler in the early 2000s during his budding years when he regularly performed at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater co-founded by the latter. At the time, however, she was married to Arrested Development co-star Will Arnett. The couple separated in 2012 and Amy started dating Nick thereafter.

Kroll’s relationship with Poehler was a much-publicized one as the duo attended various public events, from premieres and award ceremonies to parties and vacations. Amy did not also shy away from making several mentions of Nick in her 2014 memoir titled Yes Please. Unfortunately, the lovebirds could not take their love far as they ended their relationship barely two years later in 2015. They cited their very tight schedule as the reason behind the split as it allowed them little time to spend with each other.

Following his split from Poehler, Nick started dating Lily Kwong, a model and landscape artist/designer based in Brooklyn, NYC. Kwong is an award-winning artist who owns and runs Studio Lily Kwong. Kroll reportedly started dating Kwong in 2018.
