10. What’s one misconception people have about you?
I am not a writer on The Daily Show. People ask, “What’s it like to be a writer?” And I’m like, “I don’t know, you should ask one of the writers.” I write for field pieces. We work together on what the script should be and all of that. But, when it comes down to writing credit? She’s in SAG, she’s on the camera.
11. What’s the last book you read?
I am currently reading a murder mystery — A Lady’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem. I love a historical situation. You know, I love a woman out here solving crime, but I don’t need it to be too heavy. I don’t need anything where…the whole thing takes place at night. I don’t need your Broadchurches, your real heavy. I need a Father Brown, I need Murdoch Mysteries. I need something cute and something nice, like a Psych situation.
12. What’s your favorite line of Honeybee’s?
“Is that a sex moose?”
13. What was your biggest fangirl moment?
When I met Angela Bassett — I was on the show that day doing a desk piece and she was the guest, and my desk piece was right before she came on. She walks up to me and she holds my hand and she’s like, “You were so great.” I was like, “Thank you!” And she said, “You did such a great job.” I said, “Thank you!” She’s talking to me and then I say, “Angela Bassett, I’m so sorry.” She said, “What?” I said, “I’m about to faint. I’m listening to everything, I want to take all of this in. But if I fall, I don’t want to take you with me.” I told myself, “Stop talking. Let her talk to you.” But I was gonna tip over and was like, “You’re gonna land on Angela Bassett.” I felt so bad, so when she was leaving from the interview, she’s like, “You alright?” I said, “Yes, ma’am. I’m so sorry. I wanted to talk to you!” I never get starstruck, I usually don’t care. But, yeah, that time.
14. When was the first time you were recognized?
I was taking my mom to Cancún for Christmas of 2018. They had switched gates last minute, so I was running through the Cancún airport trying to find my gate. I’m in a gift shop trying to get to the other terminal, and then this guy is like, “Hey, don’t I know you?” And I’m like, “If you do, come on!” and he’s like, “You’re on The Daily Show?” I say, “Yes, I am.” And he was like, “Oh, well…” I said, “Sir. Sorry, but if you want a picture, you gotta walk with me. I’m not missing my flight. Come on, let’s go.” And so he was walking with me, and then he runs and grabs his mom. And she’s like, “Oh, my gosh.” I talked to her and him, but that was the thing that I remember the most. I got recognized in the airport in Mexico.
