I've decided to make some cards throughout the week that go along with the ones I was making for @shannonl5's Ladies Week. The response on my Funny Female Facts cards were super exciting for me, and I think that this would be a great way for the Funny Community to discover similarities in what actors, movies, and TV shows they all mutually love!
I decided to start with the super underrated, super adorable Kristen Schaal. You might recognize her from 'Flight of the Conchords', 'The Last Man on Earth', and as the voice of Louise Belcher on 'Bob's Burgers'. Want to learn some new things about her? Here's five facts I thought were worth the share!
She has a Louise Belcher tattoo.
Yes, that's a skull and crossbones complete with a Louise Belcher bunny hat. So epic.
Bart wrote her name during one 'Simpsons' intro.
When she was a special guest on 'The Simpsons', her name was incorrectly written as 'Kristen Schall' during the ending credits. The staff apologized by making Bart write 'It's Kristen Schaal, not Kristen Schall.' over and over during the show's iconic intro sequence.
Her lisp got her turned down from acting classes.
Kristen thought she'd never get famous because of the lisp she'd never been able to grow out of. Welp, she's certainly seemed to prove that one wrong!
She cameoed in a Weird Al music video.
Have you watched the video for Weird Al's 'Tacky' - a parody of Pharrell Williams' 'Happy'? Yeah, Kristen's all up in that, along with Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, and Jack Black. (Where was my invite?!)
She's a pretty epic feminist.
Kristen Schaal's stand-up addresses a lot of her own feminist ideals. She's also done plenty of 'Daily Show' correspondence regarding body image, the gender wage gap, birth control, and other major women's issues. Snaps for you, Kristen.
Are you a big Kristen Schaal fan? What TV show, movie, or funny person should I do next?
