“Do you remember that episode of 30 Rock where Liz got the cheap Lasik and starts crying out of her mouth? It was so funny and a bit grotesque. I just thought, This is the funniest, coolest thing ever. In The Office, I didn’t get that many opportunities to go, Yeah, I’m completely willing to do stuff for comedy. In the pantheon of funniest people ever — Sasha Baron Cohen, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey — they all do these things that show they have no vanity, I’ve been really eager to embrace that.”

Mindy Kaling, on putting it all on the line for comedy. We agree, gross can be really funny, though sometimes gross is just, well, gross (sorry, I’m watching “Scary Movie 4″ as I write this). Point is, female comedians shouldn’t be afraid of looking gross in order to be funny. [NY Mag]
