Laura Kightlinger's Major Accomplishment


Comedienne, Laura Kightlinger on Jackie.



Crave Online: Have you refined the tone or the humor this season?

Laura Kightlinger: No, I don’t think so. What do you mean by refined?

Crave Online: Just after a year, finding what works and focusing on it. Most first seasons are totally unlike what the show becomes.

Laura Kightlinger: Yeah, I think we kind of explore maybe a few more kind of perverted venues. Like it got a little bit more out there on that stuff.

Crave Online: How much of the show is based on your personal experiences?

Laura Kightlinger: I think like 85% and then the other 15 is the experience of a woman. We usually cull a lot of stories from what happened to us and our friends, so I’d say a lot of it is. I always feel like rejection is my petrol. That’s what keeps me going.

Crave Online: Are there any Hollywood stories too awful for the show?

Laura Kightlinger: I have a story. I had written a few screenplays and I went in to meet a few producers. I’m not even sure who they were but anyway, this guy said, “We really like your screenplay a lot. The problem is it seems like it’s from a woman’s point of view.” Oh, shit, that’s what I forgot.

Crave Online: Is a woman’s perspective on comedy really that different? Because I get it.

Laura Kightlinger: Right, no, I don’t think so. As a matter of fact, what I think works about the show or I’m hoping it does is I feel like it’s androgynous. We’re losers, men are losers. We can all relate. We’ve all made mistakes that are similar in just trying to get by or make some money or feel good about ourselves. Yeah, we’re not like talking about shoe shopping or anything. It’s a lot about getting laid and getting a job.

Crave Online: Men and women can write equally bad material too.

Laura Kightlinger: Yeah, that’s for damn sure.

Crave Online: Is there more of a market now for shows about women being politically incorrect?

Laura Kightlinger: I think in a way it’s a lot more realistic than some of the shows, like all the women on Sex and the City, which was a great show. They were kind of beautiful and kept themselves together. We’re I think more like real women. I think women become sometimes categorized and we’re always kind of in the same mold, like the dumb neighbor or submissive kind of wife. Dumb Neighbor, Submissive Wife, that’s a show. Anyway, that’s another thing too about this. Women can really be who they are. I’m about to say the F word, feminist. Often that word has such a negative connotation.
