Reality star volunteers to get vulgar ‘Big Mouth’ tattoo in the middle of Netflix’s star-studded live show

It’s about time Marty Glouberman got the recognition he deserves.

Nick Kroll and the cast of “Big Mouth” surprised the audience at the 2024 Netflix Is a Joke Festival when they brought a woman onstage to get a tattoo Thursday.

Becca Calb, who starred on Peacock’s “Couple to Throuple,” was preselected and paid for her own flight to Los Angeles to get inked up live at the Greek Theatre with a vulgar tattoo of the animated character, voiced by Richard Kind.

Kroll led the surprise announcement by showing the crowd a series of tattoos fans have gotten over the show’s eight seasons, but he was dismayed there were none of Marty, the stereotypical Jewish father of John Mulaney’s character, Andrew Glouberman.

The comedian brought Kind and a tattoo artist named Ridge to the stage before Calb came up to introduce herself, showing off a Matthew Perry memorial tattoo she got following the “Friends” star’s tragic 2023 death.

“Way to bring down the room, Becca,” Kroll joked before adding that Calb’s Marty tattoo was going to be “much worse” than the Perry tribute.

Kroll, 45, told the crowd that due to LA health codes, Ridge had to give Calb the tattoo — which featured Marty in a compromising sexual position wearing a saddle — backstage, but would check in and see how things were going before they debuted it at the end of the night.

“I’m having a wonderful time,” Kind later said as they gave a video update in the middle of the show. “I’ve been looking at thigh for 45 minutes. It’s spectacular.”

The 67-year-old comedian continued, “I love it here. I think this is fascinating seeing skin burnt. It’s great. I found out a lot about Becca, and I’m sure her parents are so proud that this face is going onto your thigh.”

Calb added that she was “doing great,” as Ridge continued to tattoo her leg.

At the end of the two-and-a-half hour show, Calb, Kind and Ridge came back on the stage to show off the finished tattoo.

“Holy s–t, it’s just spectacular. It’s perfect!” Kroll yelled as the audience cheered. “How do you feel?”

“It’s fresh,” Calb replied, adding, “It feels like needles were dug into me.”

Kind — who declined getting a tattoo earlier in the evening — chimed in, “There was blood on the table. I’m not getting a tattoo. It was awful.”

“What an absolutely insane experience,” Calb wrote on Instagram. beccacalb/Instagram

Calb later said it was an “absolutely insane experience” in an Instagram Story Friday.

The star-studded evening, which “Big Mouth” co-creator Kroll hosted, included surprise appearances from Kristen Wiig, Nathan Fillion and Adam Lambert.

Mulaney performed a duet with Lambert to the Season 1 song “I’m Gay,” in which Andrew questions his sexuality.

Fred Armisen dressed up as a tampon and wandered through the audience singing “Everybody Bleeds,” a song from an episode when Jessi Klein’s character gets her period for the first time.
