Ellie Kemper Quotes
Los Angeles survives on that which is unpredictable. The unexpected courses through its very veins.
I can't do impressions.
I've never had prejudice against me because of being a woman in comedy, I've never felt any sort of unfairness because of that - but I do think it is naive to think that it doesn't exist.
My painting teacher in high school used to say, 'I can't paint like I want to, but through practice I'll get better.' But I don't think that's true. I think sometimes you just can't paint.
I guess it's easier to think badly and then be pleasantly surprised.
If you're going to plan a wedding, then a certain amount of suffering is not a choice.
I need to make sure that when I'm running out to the drugstore I'm not wearing a Biore strip or something. Not that I expect anyone to recognize me, but on the off chance they do, I just don't want to embarrass myself.
I loved 'Freaks and Geeks.' I don't know a better show.

One nice thing that I have discovered about Los Angeles is the enthusiasm with which people dress.
Growing up, I had one very specific idea of what a wedding should be, and that was the wedding of Fraulein Maria and Captain von Trapp in 'The Sound of Music.'
It's interesting because with a lot of people who I've met in comedy, it seems not to matter what your background is. In terms of formal schooling - I feel like that's a nineteenth century term - but in terms of where you went to high school or college, or wherever, all that really is irrelevant, I have found, in comedy.
