Comedian Mindy Kaling (who we just named number three on our “Hottest Female Comedian” feature) recently sat down with the L.A. Times and talked about her hit show “The Office” as well as her new book Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me.
“It was fun because the girls waiting to meet me are so nervous,” Kaling said when discussing some of her book signings. ”And being able to calm them… I’m not the Beatles or whatever, but it was a mix between being a stand-up comedian and Santa Claus.”
There’s no doubt Kaling is becoming more and more famous, with her number of acting credits growing, a new book and landing big interviews like “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart.
During the interview Kaling also gave one of the greatest explanations I’ve heard of her crazy, talkative character “Kelly” on NBC’s “The Office.”
“What’s that little thing under the screen on CNN? The crawl? Kelly acts as the impassioned crawl that people are ignoring,” said Kaling. “But they can still pick up information from it. How Sheryl Crow and Lance Armstrong broke up, what the Kardashians are doing…. When everything on Earth is destroyed except seasons 1-8 of ‘The Office’ on DVD, aliens will be able to figure out what was going on through my character.”
