For those of you not familiar with Schaal’s comedy—and may I add, shame on you—she is bold, blunt and a whole lot of fun! In this comedy special she brings her unique point of view and eccentric delivery. She will talk about anything and everything and is not afraid to overshare. As a perk, Comedy Central’s Stand-Up Web site will be featuring preview clips from the special leading up to the broadcast on Monday.
Kristen Schaal has been featured on Rolling Stone’s “50 Funniest People Now” and has won several awards including the 2008 Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Barry Award, the Andy Kaufman Award at the New York Comedy Festival and the award for Best Alternative Comic at the United States Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.
Schaal has also starred in the HBO cult hit Flight of The Conchords and has voiced characters in the animated series Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons and even Toy Story 3. Other film and television appearances include 30 Rock, Dinner for Schmucks, Mad Men and Modern Family. Schaal has even co-authored a sex guide “The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex” with husband and former Daily Show writer Rich Blomquist.
Comedy Central will release an extended and uncensored DVD of Kristen Schaal: Live at the Fillmore on April 2, that will feature material not seen in the original broadcast. This extended version will contain Comedy Central Presents: Kristen Schaal, Schaal’s performance on John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show and her favorite appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as the Women’s Issues Contributor.
The Kristen Schaal: Live at the Fillmore extended and uncensored DVD is available for pre-order here.
