Here's Kristen Schaal on The Tonight Show last night, telling Jay Leno about her first trip to a strip club and how her first lap dance turned into her feeling her stripper for lumps. Luckily, she didn't have any because that would have been a strange conversation.
Kristen Schaal has been a stand-out star on TV for a long enough time — in live action shows like Flight of the Conchords and The Daily Show as well as cartoons like Bob’s Burgers and Gravity Falls — that it’s hard to believe that Live at the Fillmore is her first full-length standup special. But even if it’s surprising, it’s true; this week Comedy Central is releasing Schaal's debut Live at the Fillmore on DVD. In addition to Schaal's one-hour special, the DVD also features material from her performances on Comedy Central Presents and John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show, and her favorite appearances on The [...]

Here's the start of Brooks's interview, in which he talks about his youth as a cocky shoplifter. Hit the jump for the rest of Brooks's interview, which touches on Blazing Saddles, Sid Caesar, and World War II stories, as well as Kristen Schaal's interview, which is coincidentally all about Blazing Saddles, Sid Caesar, and World War II:
“I am legitimately annoyed by the other [Bob's Burgers] actors a huge part of the time… Recording sessions for [creator] Loren [Bouchard]’s shows can run six, seven hours, which doesn’t sound like a huge deal — everybody works that long — but when you’re in a recording booth it’s suffocating. So in a weird way he has created this family dynamic, which is like, ‘God, I wish Kristen Schaal would stop eating that fucking rice cake thing she’s always eating. It’s so annoying.
