The LP Questionnaire/Pick Three - Kate Berlant

Written by Elizabeth Williams | Tuesday, Mar 4, 2014

The LP Questionnaire with Kate BerlantKate Berlant is my brand of funny - bizarre and surreal yet completely hilarious. Like if Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim had a little sister you secretly wish was your best friend.

For a little intro to Miss Berlant's comedy, look no further than her YouTube skits with John Early. They bring the lolz like nothing else.

Kate told us that she has zero body modification. That's right - no piercings, tattoos, extra robot arms or any other things. She was an extra on Sister Sister twice and slept at the foot of her parents' bed for years when she was a child.

Lookie here as she takes on...
