Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Star Ellie Kemper to Speak at Penn Museum [UPDATED]
UPDATE [4/7/2015, 11:17 am]: This event is officially (and sadly for those who didn’t get tickets) sold out.
ORIGINAL: You’ve already binge-watched the entire first season of Tina Fey’s new Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, so what’s going to tide you over until the release of season two? This:
The show’s star, Ellie Kemper, is coming to Penn on April 21st to chat about her career and experience on the show, and then open up the floor for audience questions.
But don’t come prepared only with questions about crazy cult hairstyles, hilarious gay roommates and stories about working with Tina Fey. As The Daily Pennsylvanian points out, “Kemper is a strong voice for gender dynamics in the entertainment industry. In 2014, she hosted a TED Talk entitled ‘Women are Funny!’ and spoke about her experience as a female comedian in the male-dominated industry.”
The event takes place on April 21st at 6 pm in Harrison Auditorium at the Penn Museum. Online tickets are on sale starting today. You can purchase them here.
