Emmy Roundtable: Comedy Actresses
- Lea Michele: I've had so many scary/embarrassing things happen to me from working on Broadway. From people being wildly drunk like in the audience, and we also had seats on the stage. I was in a show called Spring Awakening, and there was this one scene where my character is deciding whether or not she should have an abortion, and I'm fourteen years old, and it's Germany, and everything bad is happening, and this one woman in the audience she goes "GO FOR IIIIIT"
- Amy Poehler: I'm really sorry I thought it was funny at the time.
"Start writing. Write your own stuff because no one’s going to write anything for you. Perform only with people you get along with, because life is too short. Write about what you know. Find your distinctive voice. Don’t be so adaptable to what your boyfriend thinks is funny; remember that you’re rock solid. Make yourself laugh. If you’re funny, it doesn’t matter what you look like."
