2. KRISTEN SCHAAL

This multi-talented Coloradan is one of the best young comediennes in Hollywood right now. You probably know Kristen Schaal from The Last Man on Earth and previously from Flight of the Conchords, 30 Rock and Wilfred. Schaal also does a lot of voice work, most notably the role of Louise in Bob’s Burgers, Trixie in Toy Story and Mabel in Gravity Falls.

Schaal was born in Longmont, Colorado, in 1978. She spent her early childhood on her family’s farm in rural Colorado, near Boulder. Interested in comedy and acting since the early age, Schaal graduated from Northwestern University and then moved to New York City, to be in the center of the comedy and theater scene. In 2005, the New York magazine included her in the list of “The Ten Funniest New Yorkers You’ve Never Heard Of,” which turned out to be her big break and helped her get her first important roles.
