The cast of Community after they won Best Comedy at 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards
Gillian Jacobs: I think my physicality is naturally humorous, because I’m very…awkward…person. Not a lot of grace. So, they say dance and people laugh … I’d never done comedy really before this show and so I was just relying on the things that had made me laugh in my own life and made the people around me laugh at me. And, I guess we’ve integrated those into the show now. I’m really grateful for that and it’s been really fun to go from the girl on the pedestal in the pilot to like, you’re the worst, please leave — people would prefer death to my presence. It’s a real dream come true.
