The ceremony, which takes place in a tent on Santa Monica Beach, will be broadcast live on IFC. The 33rd edition of the show will talk place on March 3.
“The only thing better than having Nick Kroll and John Mulaney host the Spirit Awards is having them host the Spirit Awards twice,” said Film Independent President Josh Welsh. “They did such an amazing job last year and we’re thrilled to have them back in 2018.”
Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC, said, “From the minute Nick and John opened last year’s show, which went instantly viral, we knew we wanted them back to host this year. These two talented multi-hyphenates knocked it out of the park last year and we can’t wait to see what they have planned for this year.”
Kroll is an actor, writer, and producer, and recently co-created and voices numerous roles on the Netflix animated series “Big Mouth.” He recently wrapped productions on MGM’s “Operation Finale” opposite Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley, and Lionsgate’s “Uncle Drew.”
Mulaney is currently touring the United States with his most recent show, “Kid Gorgeous.” He starred alongside Kroll in “Oh, Hello on Broadway.” He writes for IFC’s “Documentary Now” and “Big Mouth,” on which he voices the character of Andrew.
