Her small screen career is certainly on the up-and-up, and Alison Brie landed herself a feature in the April 2012 issue of BlackBook magazine.
The 29-year-old actress donned designer dresses from the likes of Emilio Pucci and Burberry Prorsum for the elegant Harper Smith shot spread accompanying her comedic column titled “School’s Out”.

On getting her comedic start at a very young age:
“When I was a little girl, I was always trying to make my family laugh. I would perform little SNL-type skits with my sister. My signature sketch was about edible wieners. Picture me, a skinny little eight-year-old girl in Pasadena wearing a trench coat to reveal a hot dog between my legs, and I’d burst into an advertisement. ‘You’re walking down the street and you get hungry, and you don’t have anything to eat. New edible wieners! It’s your wiener, but you can eat it!’”
On her take on comedy:
“A big part of comedy to me is looking stupid and being comfortable looking unattractive. Comedy comes before vanity.”
On her TV show ‘Community’:
“What keeps people coming back to watch the show is that these people are constantly growing and changing, and that those relationships are evolving. You can go see stand-up and laugh, and that’s fine, but it’s the story that should keep you coming back.”
