I was a little disappointed. I love her as Mel, and she's great on the Daily Show, but seemed a bit scattered or confused at Cobb's. She and her "partner" certainly had several funny moments, but it seemed too much like improv. But, I will continue to follow her work.
HOWEVER... Ali Wong, the MC, was AMAZING and HILARIOUS! How come she only got about 15 minutes on stage? I certainly WILL go see her again (November 5th, the Dark Room, SF!)

Fantastic! We went because we loved her crazy character on Flight of the Conchords, but we truly couldn't have had lower expectations for the evening. Just thought it would be a cheap, pleasant night out. Turns out this was the best night of...continued
Kristen Schaal is one of the rising stars of the alternative comedy scene, with glowing reviews and multiple awards marking her ascent. In addition to having just performed to two weeks of sold out shows at the Soho Theatre in London, Kristen also had a sold out tour in Australia where she won the top prize at the 2008 Melbourne Comedy Festival. Among her many other recognitions, Kristen won “Best Alternative Comedian” at the 2006 HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, the 2nd Annual Andy Kaufman Award at the New York Comedy Festival, was named the Best Female Stand-up at the 2006 Nightlife Awards in New York and was nominated for the Perrier Award for her two person show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Her stand-up special,_ Comedy Central Presents … Kristen Schaal_, which premiered in March 2009, was also a huge hit, coming in as one of the highest rated specials for the network that season.
Perhaps best known as stalker-fan Mel from HBO’s Flight of the Conchords, Kristen can also regularly be seen as the Senior Women’s Issues Commentator on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. And her latest endeavor on the small screen, Penelope Princess of Pets, which Kristen created and starred in, premiered in March of this year on Channel 4 in the UK.
On the big screen, Kristen was recently seen in the feature film When in Rome opposite Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel and was featured in_ Valentines Day_ directed by Garry Marshall, as well as Judd Apatow’s Get Him to the Greek opposite Jonah Hill and Russell Brand, Dinner for Schmucks opposite Paul Rudd and Steve Carrell, and Going the Distance opposite Justin Long and Drew Barrymore. Kristen is also a favorite in animated films, voicing Alice in Wonderland in Shrek Forever After and Trixie the Triceratops in Toy Story 3.
Upcoming is the new film Butter where she is appearing opposite Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman. And as if that weren’t enough, Kristen’s first book, The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex, which she co-wrote with Richard Blomquist (from The Daily Show) was published this July by Chronicle Books.
