In a Youtube video, on being asked on Jehovah Witness, she replied “Well, see, I was a bad Jehovah’s Witness. (Laughs.) I sought out things that I was not supposed to — but I will say that because of that, we watched a lot of family shows. And even those family comedies were edgy for Jehovah’s Witnesses, but my household didn’t care because we liked comedies. We were watching King of Queens, Martin, In Living Color and SNL. I valued shows I could watch with my family so much because of that, and I think it informed my love for network comedies.”
