I just don't think of myself as a woman or a grownup. Did you move there specifically to get in with Second City? I remember hearing that in first and second grade." AC: [with a Yiddish accent] Well, those kids had an eye for talent! We all bring something different to it, and it somehow works.

I would always do the talent shows when they had them. Then when did you develop this real kinship for people on the margins? I don't think there's a whole lot of stuff out there for that audience, and then I think we just find the same things funny, so we click. AC: I regrettably didn't have cable when Exit 57 aired. AC: [Yiddish again] If it ain't on the page, it ain't on the stage. Sometimes I'll watch TV, and I can tell and just think some times someone is wasting my time with this improv. Paul Dinello mentioned that about Fellini's wife in Nights of Cabiria, that she's sort of the tragic clown, and so is Jerri.

I could talk to potheads just as much as I could talk to popular people. Like, when I would come home from Strangers With Candy and it was on TV, I would turn it down and sit and watch the episode without listening to the words.
Maybe I just lived in my head too much, but I was pretty shocked I had to repeat it. AC: How was your overall high school experience, and what was your circle of friends like?

AC: Has your regard or approach for playing Jerri changed at all as your own age comes closer to hers? Do you know if there's the potential for that to be released on DVD? AC: There's so much similarity, I was wondering if that film has informed your work. I saw that film for the first time probably about two years ago, and I loved it, and I could see what Paul was talking about.Austin Chronicle: How does it feel to be one of the first artists chosen by Sesame Street to collaborate with Abby Caddaby [the first new female Muppet in 13 years]?

And then even if you could afford it, you shut it down while you're filming so it's like just as hot.
