We dig Kristen Wiig. (we just realized that rhymes, sweet)
Anyway, back to the point, if you haven't seen Bridesmaids, run don't walk to a theater near you. Not only is it fantastically funny but it stars Kristen Wiig whom we have decided is our ultimate funny girl.
People know her from SNL but we are digging in deeper. Here are 5 facts about the lady who makes everyone laugh.
