Kristen Schaal tells a story about hanging out with Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson. “I don’t mean to name drop, this is just my life now!” (Kristen stars with Mary on The Last Man on Earth.) She recalls how she fell off of a stool and her dress came up, exposing her granny panties. She explains that she wears them because they are comfortable and she didn’t plan on anyone else seeing them that night. If she was among old friends, she wouldn’t really care that she just made a fool of herself. Also, if she had just met them, she wouldn’t care either. However, in this case they were right in the middle and she was quite embarrassed. This tale is completely in line with Schaal’s persona and it makes for a great story, which the audience loved.
Later on, Johan Miranda talks about how he is an illegal immigrant. His parents brought him to the US when he was 3 on a travel visa. In 2012, he applied for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and became official. With Trump expected to repeal DACA, he feels like his days are numbered. When he first looked for a lawyer, he discovered they charged $250 an hour. “I guess I’ll take my chances without a lawyer then!” he exclaims. He did eventually find representation and he is doing everything he can to stay. Well, except get married—that would ruin his dream of being a commitment-phobic boyfriend!
Also of note, Andrew Sleighter realized his LA dream of doing a cool show within walking distance of his apartment!
