the seventh in a series where we asked comedians to tell us what was good this year....

Kristen Schaal

Kristen Schaal is a favorite of mine and a favorite of BV readers. Lotsa people know her as Mel from the show Flight of the Conchords, but she's much more than that. She hosts Hot Tub Variety Show with Kurt Braunohler and has a series of videos on Super Deluxe called Penelope Princess of Pets (also with Braunohler). She's also won several awards including Best Alternative Comedian at the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival, an Andy Kaufman Award, and a Best Female Stand-up Award at the 2006 Nightlife Awards in NYC. Recently Kristen parted ways with South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone because her ideas were too weird (their loss!). Kristen took some time to tell BV what tunes she was really into in '07. - Klaus

come on now...this is not the same as all the other comedians' lists: no LCD soundsystem, no Arcade fire.....actually, this is probably the most interesting year end list we've seen so far

damn skippy.

see that is comedy, it works on a few levels.

what is the point of this series? it just seems so arbitrary to ask comedians what their favorite releases are, when it's likely gonna be the same pics you get from an episode of gossip girl.

kristen schaal is the sex though!!!

Is it bad that I think she's cute?

why is everyone always whining about the comedians. its entertaining....if you think it's stupid then don't read it. pretty simple solution.

Yes. It might be cold outside, but just step out for a bit. Much better looking women are out there. Not saying she is ugly, just that there are tons of better looking women out there.

this term by the way, means "super cute one" in the land of the dude.

Not Amy Winehouse funny, but funny.

I think she's cute too.

yeah, what's up with these comedians lists? why can't they have lists from people like me who only listen to bands that have never released albums before and have really only practiced once or twice or are maybe just talking about forming a band. i am into some seriously underground shit! once a band records their first demo they are pretty much over for me! and don't even get me started on bands that someone else besides me has heard of. forget that shit!

she's definitely in the top three good looking girls on the street (depending on the street)

Why would anyone want to date a comedian? You'd become fodder for their act.

Hey Javier: Yeah, if that Street was in Kentucky or maybe Washington DC at best!

she is lovely.
but i dont see why people feel the need to bring up looks whenever a female musician or comedian gets exposure....no one discusses whether or not michael showwalter is hot when BV makes a post about him.

Posted by c. | December 13, 2007 4:58 PM

sexuality though is very much part of her act.

I'm the original 5:34 poster, didn't do the repeats, but thanks other anonymous for injecting that bit of irony here.

Please folks, continue to judge a woman on their looks. Especially those faceless, genderless, anonymous heroes.

Now that Sam Kinison, what any ugly mother fucker. Who would have touched him, YEECH! Glad his career went nowhere!

she always has her tongue hanging out of her mouth

Yeah...some of you really need to get out more. Kristen Schaal's annoying voice sounds like she's constntly huffing helium and se's got a kisser like a fucking chipmunk. What's wrong with you people???

"she always has her tongue hanging out of her mouth"

Exactly my thoughts. I'd laugh but i am too grossed out. Especially the tongue thing.

Ew.
