Big Mouth Voice Cast & Character Guide


  • Big Mouth is a hilarious and relatable animated series that explores the wild and messy world of puberty through the eyes of middle schoolers.
  • The show’s inclusive cast of diverse characters subverts expectations and tackles taboo topics, making it one of TV’s most inclusive shows.
  • The voice cast includes talented actors like Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jenny Slate, Maya Rudolph, and more, bringing the characters to life with their comedic flair.



With the show’s return to Netflix for its penultimate season, new viewers and long-time fans alike might be wondering about the enduring (and latest) members of the Big Mouth voice cast and characters. Co-created by Nick Kroll, Adam Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett, the popular animated series centers on a group of middle schoolers and takes a look at all the highs and lows of the coming-of-age experience. Horrified, thrilled, and shocked at the changes that await them, the preteens navigate both awkward and raunchy situations, but Big Mouth makes it all as relatable as it is funny.

One of the show’s defining traits is its surrealistic approach to showing just how wild and messy the teenage mind is when puberty hits. In its earliest episodes, Big Mouth centers on best friends Nick Birch (Kroll) and Andrew Glouberman (John Mulaney) navigate their first sexual experiences and other puberty-related benchmarks, they’re pestered by their hormone monsters — entities that are responsible for the boys’ brooding (and often ill-timed) sexual desires. Although the forthcoming Big Mouth season 8 marks the show’s final outing, the series will continue to inspire other raunchy, coming-of-age comedy series to come.

Big Mouth’s Main Characters

With seven seasons under its belt, Big Mouth has evolved into an ensemble series that’s one of TV’s most inclusive shows. While a series that centers on hormone monsters and teens who are confronting their sexual desires for the first times seems like an unlikely venue for representation, Big Mouth has subverted expectations by tackling once-taboo topics as they relate to its diverse cast of characters. Despite the show’s ensemble approach, Big Mouth definitely has a few characters who feel more central to the series’ narrative than others.

Nick Kroll As Nick Birch & Maurice The Hormone Monster

Big Mouth’s lead character, Nick struggles with his self-image and sexual urges and is voiced by the show’s co-creator Nick Kroll.

In Big Mouth, Kroll portrays a variety of characters, from Nick and Maurice the Hormone Monster to Coach Steve.
