Kaitlin Olson is the latest guest on Paul F. Tompkins’s web series, Speakeasy. Over the course of the 20-minute clip, the It’s Always Sunny star touches on the following topics:
- Coming up through the ranks of the L.A. sketch comedy group, The Groundlings.
- The difference between working on a show like It’s Always Sunny that uses “mean” comedy as a way to make a point or deliver a message, and working on shows like Punk’d that used “mean” comedy to humiliate people.
- Her husband, It’s Always Sunny creator and star Rob McIEhenney, who she describes as her hero for seeing his vision for the show through, and not letting the pressure get to him.
- Raising a child who could turn out to be Dexter, and why that’s not so bad.
- The eventual end of the show’s run, which she is mostly tight-lipped about, but I am mentioning anyway for very important PAGEVIEW$$$ reasons.
The whole thing is a good watch, but it did make me realize something: I’ve apparently seen enough It’s Always Sunny that I’m now incapable of watching an interview with Kaitlin Olson without expecting the rest of the gang to come charging in and ruin it for her somehow.
