Meet The Stars Who’ll Be Telling The Gross Truth About Puberty On Netflix’s ‘Big Mouth’


Netflix's Big Mouth is anchored by a host of major comedians — Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Jessi Klein — but the Big Mouth celebrity guest cast is just as stacked. Among those featured are Kristen Bell, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, and Mark Duplass, so it's basically a who's who of Hollywood for viewers adept at picking out voices.

The series, an animated sitcom, was created by Kroll alongside Family Guy writer Andrew Goldberg and husband-wife duo Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett, the latter of whom have worked together on films like Journey to the Center of Earth (2008) and Wimbledon (2004). It's based on real-life pals Kroll and Goldberg's teenage years, and, judging by the trailer, is the streaming equivalent of an Adult Swim show: An unfiltered, foul-mouthed dive into the dreadfully hormonal rite of passage called puberty.

It chronicles the exploits of Kroll's fictional self, Nick Birch, and his extended group of friends, family, and classmates. Fred Armisen (Portlandia) voices his father, Elliot; Maya Rudolph (Maya & Marty) both his mother, Diane, and Connie the Hormone Monstress (Kroll also plays her male counterpart, Maurice the Hormone Monster); John Mulaney (Saturday Night Live) his friend Andrew; Jenny Slate (Girls) Missy; Jason Montzoukas (The League) Jay; Jessi Klein (Inside Amy Schumer) Jessi; and Jordan Peele (Key and Peele) the ghost of Duke Ellington, among several other characters.

And somewhere along the way, these other famous voices will join them.

Beyond names, details about each of their characters remain sparse, but with the show's Sept. 29 premiere quickly approaching, it won't be long until you can marathon your way through the full 10 episodes. One thing you can count on? With this much star power behind it, Big Mouth should be just as hilarious, sharp, and wildly inappropriate as the trailer seems to suggest, so prepare yourself for a wonderfully weird addition to the Netflix lineup.
