If you’re anything like me, you want some new Big Mouth. Welp, we’ve got a bunch of new episodes in production right now, but Netflix wants to tease you a bit before that happens, so they’ve announced a live-stream table read for an episode set to happen on Friday, March 27th @8pm ET/5pm PT only on the Netflix is a Joke Youtube channel. Slated to be part of the live-stream is that of show co-creator Nick Kroll (“Nick”), Maya Rudolph (“Connie”), John Mulaney (“Andrew”), Jenny Slate (“Missy”), Jessi Klein (“Jessi”), JasonMantzoukas (“Jay”), and more.
The show is touting their support for Feeding America. Feeding America is a United States–based nonprofit organization that is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community-based agencies.
Big Mouth is one of the shows we first reported on a couple of weeks ago that has been adjusting to COVID-19 by using Zoom to do writer’s room meetings, table reads, and pretty much anything else you need to produce one of Netflix’s biggest animated comedies that currently has a back order of three additional seasons and a spin-off series called Human Resources.
Big Mouth is a half-hour edgy adult animated comedy from real-life best friends Nick Kroll ( Kroll Show, The League) and Andrew Goldberg ( Family Guy) about the glorious nightmare that is teenaged puberty. Comedian John Mulaney ( John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid, Saturday Night Live) lends his voice to the character of Andrew, while Kroll (who serves as co-creator, executive producer) voices many including best friend Nick. Maya Rudolph ( Maya & Marty, Bridesmaids), Jason Mantzoukas ( The League, Lady Dynamite), Jordan Peele ( Keanu, Key and Peele), Fred Armisen ( Portlandia, Documentary Now!), Jenny Slate ( Girls, Lady Dynamite) and Jessi Klein ( Inside Amy Schumer) are among those who lend their voice to the series. Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg and screenwriter-directors Mark Levin & Jennifer Flackett are all creators and executive producers on the series. Big Mouth is a Netflix production.
