Tsk Tsk Cornell! You failed to mention that Jules Kroll is on your board of Trustees and that he was your Entreprenuer of the year, before this was written by Sophia Rosenbaum

Cornell's Student Paper put it this out to promote Nick Kroll...

Nick Kroll leads ‘League’ in laughs

Nia Pellone/Staff Photographer Comedy Central’s Nick Kroll performs in the Anderson Center’s Osterhout Theater on Sunday night.
He may not be known best for his stand-up, but Comedy Central’s Nick Kroll can certainly keep an audience laughing.
Last night’s performance, “Nick Kroll and the Comedy Central College Tour,” was held in the Anderson Center’s Osterhout Theater.

Cornell said the SA chose Kroll because he was going to be in the area and because of his high rankings on the Student Association Programming Board surveys.

Prior to the night of the show, ticket sales were at 254, but the show ended up generating 732 sold tickets.
Past comedic acts have included Aziz Ansari — a stand-up comedian known for his role on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” — and Jon Stewart, of “The Daily Show.” However, unlike this year’s event, Stewart performed in the Events Center and Ansari performed in the West Gym.
“I like that we’re having it in the Anderson Center this year,” Cornell said. “It’s a much more intimate space and it’s how comedy is supposed to be heard — in an intimate theater, not in a cramped gym on bleachers.”

Note: Intimate space meaning that Jules Kroll's son can't sell tickets!

Comedian Joe Mande opened the show, and said he enjoyed being on tour with someone like Kroll.
“It’s good to do stand-up and open for someone like Nick because people actually come, unlike when I do stand-up on my own,” Mande said.
 Note: People actually don't come and that is why Nick Kroll has to write checks to cover the losses.

Mande covered a wide range of topics, from his ultimate sexual fantasy, to his experiences as a 10-year-old at sleep-away camp, to politics.
“I feel like Barack Obama is very sad lately because every time he looks in the mirror, no matter what he does, he knows Will Smith will play him in a movie some day,” he said.
Kroll started his act off by complementing the audience.
“You’re a good-looking crowd,” he said. “Any ‘basically single’ ladies out here? I’m recently single.”
He added that his friends have been giving him some terrible dating advice recently.

“My friends told me to go on a coffee date, but I don’t think my best foot forward is jittery with diarrhea,” Kroll said.

 Note: Jules Kroll's vicious imbecile of a son loves loves loves to discuss his bowel movements
Throughout the show, he kept bringing up that he was single, even using a few pick-up lines on women in the audience.
“Excuse me, are you 9/11? Because like, I could never forget you,” he said.
Stand-up became a part of Kroll’s life during his college years at Georgetown University, where he graduated in 2001.

Kroll had Tully’s for dinner and said that he’s happy he finally got to try “the best chicken tenders in the world.”

You know, instead of advertising them as ‘the best chicken tenders in the world, they should just say that they won’t make you squirt diarrhea for the rest of the night,” Kroll said.

Note: OMG! Head of the Board of Trustee's son can't stop talking about his chronic Diareah problem! Again, please note how no mention is made about Nick Kroll's father and how influential he is at Cornell.

Prior to the show, Cornell said she was looking forward to Kroll’s bit on the campus publications because she knew he had read some of them.
“He spent a lot of time reading Pipe Dream and Binghamton Review, so he’ll definitely be taking some jabs at our publications, which should be interesting,” she said.
Kroll weighed in on the unfolding Greek Life investigation on campus.

Note: Nick "The gruesome prick" Kroll only knows this insider stuff cause of his fathers lifelong association with Cornell. That needs to be revealed to the readers, as inconsequential as is all might seem

“If you could be a little bit fucked up, but I mean, not enough to shut the entire Greek Life system down, but enough to be like, ‘They’re showing ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ we should go,’” Kroll said. “I mean, what’s even going on here with Greek Life?”
Later, he addressed the Greek Life topic again, assuring students that everything will be OK.
“Don’t worry about the frats and sororities,” he said. “There will always be houses where bad booze can be served and where you can get date raped.”

Note: this is both unfunny and incomprehensible

At the end of his show, Kroll opened up an informal question-and-answer session.
One student asked when his new show, “The Kroll Show,” would be premiering. Kroll said the show is expected to start in the fall.

Note: A planted questioner is not a student, Sophia Rosenbaum!

“It’s going to be really fun,” he said. “We wanted it to be ‘The Krollsby Show’ and then we thought of ‘Krollin’ Around With Nick Clown,’ but that one didn’t quite make it,” Kroll said.
Season 4 of “The League,” Kroll’s claim to fame, has yet to be filmed, but he said it’s fair to assume that some “very funny, horrible things” will air.
Brad Levine, a graduate student in accounting, said he was pleased with Kroll’s comedy routine, as it was similar to Kroll’s character Ruxin.
“He was really funny and pretty much exactly what I expected based on his character in ‘The League,’” Levine said.
Like Cornell, other students enjoyed his BU-related jokes.
“Both guys were very funny and I especially liked how Kroll incorporated jokes about Binghamton University into his routine,” said Andrew Dobry, a senior majoring in accounting.

So some Student association at Cornell chose beginning comedian, Nick Kroll, above all other comedians. 

Cornell said the SA chose Kroll because he was going to be in the area and because of his high rankings on the Student Association Programming Board surveys.

High ranking by "Programming Board," and in the area???? No mention of who his father is?

Hmmm too on this:

Prior to the night of the show, ticket sales were at 254, but the show ended up generating 732 sold tickets.

And, how pray tell did that go down???? The same way he covered the losses to Comedy Central and when they agreed to air the abysmal Kroll Show. The same way he covered Tig Notaro's sham kickstarter and sham cancer set? The same way he is fixing comedy festivals and even awards for his friends. But believe me it's not cause he's a good friend. He's copying his fathers, "Make them deep in your debt." business model.

Hmm and Hmmm once more, what did Cornell have to say about the SA and Nick Kroll getting chosen for this very special affair? 

Well, they didn't mention it as far as I can find. They didn't go so far as to pretend that the Student Association chose Nick Kroll over every living comedian.

Jules Kroll '63, chair of Kroll Inc., is selected as Cornell Entrepreneur of the Year 2003

ITHACA, N.Y. -- Jules Kroll, Cornell University alumnus, executive chairman of the board of Kroll Inc. and acknowledged founder of the modern corporate investigative and security industry, will be honored Oct. 23 and 24 on the Cornell campus as Cornell Entrepreneur of the Year 2003.
The award is given annually to a Cornellian who best exemplifies entrepreneurial achievement, community service and high ethical standards.
Kroll received a B.A. degree in government from Cornell in 1963 and an LL.B. degree from Georgetown University Law Center in 1966. He founded his company in 1972 to provide consulting services to corporate purchasing departments. During the 1980s and 1990s, as mergers and acquisitions increased, Kroll Inc. gained prominence by helping clients size up suitors and targets. High-profile cases also helped the company's reputation spread, as it tracked down assets hidden by Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier, Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, and Saddam Hussein.
Beginning in 1998, Kroll Inc. made a series of strategic acquisitions of companies specializing in forensic accounting, background screening, drug testing, security engineering, corporate restructuring and data recovery. Those additions expanded Kroll's capabilities and led the company to its current structure of five business groups.
Today, Kroll is acknowledged as the world's leading independent risk consulting company, providing services to clients worldwide and employing more than 2,200 people, many from international auditing firms, multinational corporations, the military, law enforcement and intelligence agencies. Kroll reported revenue of $289.2 million in 2002. Its clients include corporations, law firms, nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, governments and individuals.
The Cornell Entrepreneur of the Year award was established in 1984 by Cornell's S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management, and it is now managed by the university's Entrepreneurship and Personal Enterprise Program (EPE). Founded in 1992 as a combined initiative of the Johnson School and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, EPE supports instruction, internships, student groups and an alumni network. The deans of the nine participating Cornell schools and colleges govern the program. A committee of Cornell alumni, faculty and students reviews the nominations for the award and selects the recipient.
The past three Cornell Entrepreneur of the Year award winners have been: Rob Ryan '69, founder of Ascend Communications and Entrepreneur America; Jeffrey Parker '65, M.Eng '66, MBA '70, founder of First Call and co-founder and chairman/CEO of the Corporate Communications Broadcast Network (CCBN); and Jeff Hawkins '79, inventor of the PalmPilot and co-founder of Handspring Inc.
This year's entrepreneur of the year celebration will begin with an award-presentation dinner and reception Oct. 23, hosted by Cornell President Jeffrey Lehman. The celebration will include a public address by Kroll on Oct. 24 at 4 p.m. in the Statler Auditorium on campus.
For further information about the entrepreneur of the year celebration or EPE, contact John Jaquette, EPE executive director, at (607) 255-9675, or see this Web site: .
