Whoever started that horrible rumor that women aren’t funny (John Belushi!), didn’t live long enough to see just how utterly hysterical female comediennes can be. And anyone who still had some hesitations about just how funny we, as ladies, can be, were probably finally converted full force with last year’s Bridesmaids. Let’s face it: women are fucking hilarious and can pull off toilet humor just as well as the boys.
In the last decade, Mindy Kaling has solidified herself as one of the those brilliantly funny ladies of this generation. Sitting pretty with such women like Kristen Wiig, Tina Fey and Melissa McCarthy, Kaling has made a name for herself both on the big and little screens, as well as in her memoir, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) that came out the end of last year.
At just a mere 33 years old today, it’s safe to assume that Kaling’s career is just getting started even though she already has some amazing achievements under her belt. And with The Mindy Project having been picked up for this upcoming fall season, our lives are about to get so much better. Who doesn’t want a weekly double dose of Mindy? I’m not sure. But I am sure whoever that person is, we probably wouldn’t get along very well.
