Nick Kroll Tells His Embarassing Bill Murray Encounter

Sometimes meeting your idol isn't as amazing as you'd hope it would be. Nick Kroll stopped by "The Tonight Show" on Friday and told Jimmy Fallon the story of his cringeworthy encounter with the legendary Bill Murray.

Kroll said that one night when he was set to perform at an open mic event, he got word that Bill Murray was in the building. Kroll, being a huge fan of the "Caddyshack" actor, approached Murray and asked him if he would watch his stand-up routine. When Murray agreed, Kroll couldn't be more excited ... until, that is, he totally bombed on stage, with Murray watching.

"I bombed harder than Kanye West at a Ray J CD release party," Kroll said.
