The rising star of comedian Kate Micucci is getting a boost from a FOX comedy. Micucci has been cast on the new sitcom Raising Hope.
The pixie-like Micucci is one half of a comedy act called Garfunkel & Oates and has displayed her talents on shows like Scrubs, and ‘Til Death in the past. You can also check out a clip of her “rocking” out in the streets with fellow musical comedian Nick Thune earlier this year at the International Comedy Fest in Australia.
The story goes that Micucci was originally cast in a role that ended up being cut from the show but creator Greg Garcia (My Name Is Earl) liked her and created another character for her to lend her comedy ukulele to. Did I really just write that?
