KRISTEN SCHAAL & SCOTT JACOBSON
According to the Onion AV Club, Bob's Burgers "can balance chaos and bizarre cutaways with legitimate insight and character development" which is a neat trick for any show but even more so for a Fox animated comedy. We'll be joined by comedian Kristen Schaal (30 Rock, Flight of the Conchords, The Daily Show) and writer Scott Jacobson (The Academy Awards, The Daily Show, TV Funhouse) to talk about how they bottle that particular brand of animated lightning.
Jen Kirkman is a stand-up comedian based out of Los Angles and a regular contributor to Funny or Die's Drunk History, which is about what it sounds like. (You can see her star turn here.)

Her first book, I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales From a Happy Life Without Kids, was released in April.

Courtenay's going to be reading an essay. Does she really need a bio blurb? She was hosting the show, like, yesterday.
