I have to say I enjoy physical comedy and I've always loved to kind of take risks. I don't like worrying too much about how I look or how I come across, so that can sometimes... You know, I like to play those kinds of deluded but fun characters.
I was the daughter of teachers, so school was always very important. I liked it.
Both conservatives and liberals watch 'Parks and Recreation,' and they each think the show is for them, which is really cool. 'SNL' was totally different. It was exciting because everyone was paying attention. Political humor works when people know what you're talking about.
If you do a scene and you really like a character in it or a premise in it to write it down and to work on it so that you can have five or six characters that you can pull out in an audition.
I really do believe that anything in life - any obstacle or challenge - can be made better with humor.
I just love bossy women. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It mans somebody's passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn't mind leading.
You have to care about how good you are and how good you feel, but not about how good people think you are or how good people think you look.
