Biography

She may have an oddly spelled last name (it's pronounced shall, as in "call"), but Kristen Schaal's rapid rise to stardom is anything but strange. A mainstay of New York's comedy clubs throughout the early 2000s, Schaal made a name for herself as Mel on HBO's surrealist musical comedy, "Flight of the Conchords" (HBO, 2007-09), and soon followed that up with appearances on "Modern Family" (ABC, 2009- ), "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996- ), as well as a recurring role as Louise Belcher on the animated sitcom, "Bob's Burgers" (Fox, 2011- ). Already a rising comedic talent, her unmistakable high-pitched voice work, which has also included characters in "Toy Story 3" (2010), "Despicable Me 2" (2013) and "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" (2013), has lent further credence to her status as a quirky multi-talented performer.
