In a new stand-up comedy special released on Tuesday, comedian Nick Kroll, who grew up in Rye, talks about his comedian origin story, growing up, family and relationships.

He also talks about Resurrection Church. Within the first five minutes of the special, Kroll delivers a story about being the only Jewish kid to attend a karate class at Resurrection Church.

“We then arrive at karate,” says Kroll, talking about growing up. “I took karate. I was a little Jewish boy and I took karate with ten Irish Catholic firemen in my town – at a Catholic school in my town called Resurrection. This was a school that I was not welcome at during the day – but I want it to be like, without me I don’t know if you got the name.”

It goes on from there and we won’t spoil the rest – watch it.
