The 32-year-old vet of improv and sketch comedy reflects on seven seasons in Studio 8H, what frustrated her about the acting opportunities she was offered during hiatuses and why she ultimately signed on to co-create, co-write, co-produce and star on a Hulu series about a "fat" young woman in 21st century America.
