There are two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit of the title compound, C13H14N2, in which the dihedral angles formed by the pyrrole and benzene rings are 83.63 (8) and 87.84 (8)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked via pairs of N-HN hydrogen bonds, forming inversion dimers, which are further connected by C-H interactions.
