That Time Nick Kroll Was On A Plane With Joan Rivers And Bradley Cooper

During a conversation with HuffPost Live's Josh Zepps about the upcoming season of "The League," Nick Kroll took a moment to discuss comedy icon Joan Rivers, who remains in the hospital following a serious health scare last week.

Kroll praised Rivers, whom he called "a real important part of the comedy world," and also shared his personal experience sitting next to her on a flight from New York to Los Angeles.

"I sat next to her, and Bradley Cooper was on the plane as well, and she goes, 'Watch this, the plane is gonna crash and the news is gonna be, 'Bradley Cooper and two comedians die in a plane crash,'" Kroll said.
