Nick Kroll and John Mulaney Return to Host 2018 Spirit Awards

IFC brings back the pair

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney will return to host the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards, IFC announced Tuesday.

The two comedians hosted last year’s indie movie awards show and will take the stage again the night before the Oscars on Saturday, March 3. The show will be broadcast live on IFC at 5 PM ET.

“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,” said IFC President Jennifer Caserta,   “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, an actor, writer, and producer, will next appear in MGM’s “Operation Finale” opposite Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingley and Lionsgate’s “Uncle Drew.” Mulaney, an Emmy winning writer and comedian, is currently touring the U.S. with his newest show, “Kid Gorgeous” and is currently appearing on Netflix’s “Big Mouth.”

Nominations for the 2018 Spirit Awards will be announced by Lily Collins and Tessa Thompson at the Jeremy Hotel in West Hollywood on Thursday, Nov. 21.
