Parks and recreation was a sitcom set in a fictional town in indiana and follows local government municipal workers whereas you played don amigo the office manager now you auditioned for this. I said but the creator mike sure said that he really got into you because because of a off the cuff story you told about your yes yes so i i hate auditioning so there was an audition and i did read from sides or whatever and then afterwards. He just started chatting. He's like i like her. Watch and i just got in the watch was super super geeked watch. I'd gotten it from this website guilt group but it was brand new at the time so you had to be invited so i immediately. He was like oh my god. I got it from this new thing you have to be invited by email. I can send it to you and you can check these toy watches different and i was like a crazy person person and and i think he was like she's insane. I love her if my audition was redeemed myself with my crazy but that's interesting as you say that because it is that thing at least you can you walk away and you're like i was myself right and that's because that's the hard thing is to be yourself at an audition. It's really the hard you usually come in. You're so scared and then they're like. I don't wanna work with this freak. You know this person who's not comfortable in their own skin. So you had to kind of learn to be yourself. It's impossible now. The casting creator of parks and rec recently gathered for a tenth anniversary celebration at paley fest which is big television asian festival and you were address a pink custom dress with treat yourself your catchphrase written all over it. Was this your the idea yes so and treat yourself obviously has become a huge instagram hashtag right. It's four point three million. People use that hash tag. Oh yeah it's pretty pervasive. I mean it's pretty cool to be a part of the zeitgeist. <hes> when it first started getting really really popular i would go go with friends and i'd be like if we check the hashtag. Treat yourself on twitter. If it hasn't been said in seven minutes i via lunch has has the new violence and i have never bought lines. Never i've moved it up to fourteen minutes because it's been like five years but probably in the last fifteen minutes. Somebody has tweeted it right right exactly so you didn't start enacting school. You started what we worked worked as a chemist and then you did stand up so first of all. I just want to know about that. Turn the funniest person in the lab where we all like you. One hundred percent stand up. Yes i was the funniest person i've been pissed off. I was so i was premed. I did not go to medical school. My mother mother would be very excited that people think i did. I was taking a year off before medical school but i was afraid to leave science so my i got a job doing chemistry chemistry and it was the first time that i'd lived alone and so i already watched a lot of t._v. And then there's no one else to talk to you. Then that's all you do share and and i was single. I was still in north carolina and i was like you know i could do this and if there's a time to do it do it now and so that's when i decided that i wanted wanted to get into television and then you know my research. I eat more t._v. Watching i i knew i wanted to get into sitcom so i went to acting class at the raleigh little theatre. It was like out of a bad movie but i knew that all these sitcoms this were headed by stand up comedians so that's why i started doing stand up comedy and so i did it for about a year in north carolina and then i drove cross country with a friend to try to make that hollywood thing happen amazing you tell me about this comedy central standup contests that you one i i saw comedy. Central has a stand up well. I don't think they do it anymore. But they had stand up competition every year and this was their very first one and i did did it and i got into the semi finals and then to the finals and then i won and i i want a car. I won a year's supply supply of taco bell. That was the best part because i was broke at hundred and then i won in a spot on the new faces showcase at at just for laughs montreal. Can you ever look at a chalupa again. Oh i'm i'm. I'm about their tacos. Yeah bring friends in on that price every once in a while but i i was yeah so so i needed to talk. That's pretty exciting that you fear of food and a prestigious spot. The year of food was three hundred sixty. I five combo coupons one coupon per day for free right yeah but i use them all it and then in two thousand eighteen very wrote a book called so close to being the y'all don't and even know its a collection of essays about basically living your destiny realizing your potential which is obviously a huge which part of your story making bold decisions in your career and in your life to get where you want to go so from where you sit right now. What is your dream gig <hes> well. I'm really happy right now. Working on good girls i love playing a whole human being and i get to do drama and be funny as well so so that makes me really happy. I know that i you know i think most actors do this whether they knew that i wanted to do it or not i know i wanna produce. I would love to <hes> you know have my own production company and so i can kind of mold the things that i get to do and bring things for other people to do a lot of friends who were actors who need work. Oh ooh yeah. I'd love to be able to give them work. That's very nice giving back. You currently play ruby hill on good girls so in this show you in two other moms who are or are financially pushed to their limits rob grocery store for the betterment of your family's. I got to say i love the show i love female anti heroes who are relatable well and i find a great that these kind of stories are prevalent right now on television. I find them empowering my drawn to this for the same reason you are. No i thought it was interesting that they they're committing crimes and because i was a little bit nervous about that part of it interest. I loved that she was a whole being being. That was a woman who loves her. Husband was a black woman who loved her husband loved. Her family was gonna do whatever she could and they were just normal human beings. I wasn't playing a trope rope. I wasn't i wasn't stereotypical. Wasn't i didn't have to have sas if you see me with sats. It's because i add it. You know what i mean. It's that kind of thing and it. It was such a breath of fresh air for me to see apart that was written for me written with me. In mind where i wasn't playing go a meter maid who had attitude and all she did was roller neck that kind of thing right i mean people are comparing the characters in this show to popular characters anti-heroes like breaking from breaking bed or thelma and louise <hes>. Do you compare it to anything. I don't mind being compared to breaking bad. I yeah that was a good show. It was great. I liked it yeah so i'm willing to accept that accolade. I what i like. One of my favorite shows the sex in the city because i loved the friendships <hes> the love that the woman had for each other and i love that they showed them fighting and getting over it and i like that they show us fighting and getting you know like ruby and anne butt heads a lot yeah and then they come back. They know that they they love each other to win for instance. They were kids. There's nothing that's going to break that bond. We hope if you're caught up okay reta.

Everybody want her neck special guests to play for you. Follow ask me another on facebook twitter and instagram. Our next game is about sports teams. Remember there is no no i in team but there is an i in. I don't know anything about sports teams. Let's meet contestants. I up anna deniger halpern. You're a historian and adjunct professor. That's right santana stick so do people always expect you know everything about all of history everything everything but all of his everything they'll just come to me and say oh so. Do you know a lot about this. One person in this one time obscure situations now now you say now no say oh yeah that sounds interesting and when you ring in we'll hear this your opponent what is cory whisk you manage a stadium in new jersey. You've been working there nine years and you say you see something different every day. That's right okay so what's something exciting thing that you said recently well. We had a major event yeah wrestlemainia. Oh yeah which was pretty interesting so i got to see a bunch of former professional wrestlers backstage so that was new yeah. Did you shake hands with them. Just kind of observed and just walk around the corner of corey when you ring in we'll hear this remember an inquiry who has more points after two games will go to the final round. Let's go to your first game called away games. Many professional sports teams have names james reflecting the history and culture of their city like the pittsburgh steelers. Sometimes professional sports teams move to a new city but keep their your old name. Even if it no longer makes any sense so we're going to ask you questions about teams that have moved you. Tell us the team name and where it plays now ring in to answer sir here we go. This basketball team was named in honor of minnesota's thousands of bodies of water in one thousand nine hundred sixty. The team moved move to a drought prone city in southern california. Anna the los angeles laker you get the new orleans rich musical heritage inspired this basketball team's name but in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine the team traded louis armstrong for the mormon tabernacle choir dust moving from the nation's biggest party to the nation's non-existent party cory utah jazz yeah that's right in two thousand and one these mean brown bears migrated from the mountains of vancouver to tennessee. Let's see where only black bears live watching them on the basketball court. You'd think they're still in hibernation. Yeah that's right anna. The memphis memphis grizzlies yeah. That's correct threat. We just did an m._p._r. Sports burn uncharacteristic <unk> characteristic. It's very treatable. In the late eighteen hundreds this public transit themed seemed brooklyn baseball team got its name from how good it's fans. Were at jumping way of electric trolley cars. The team moved west and now most of its fans are stuck in traffic on the one ten corey the l._a. Dodgers yeah that's right. I also learned that that obviously when electric train cars were introduced and everyone was used to trolley cars being drawn by horses they all of a sudden had to jump out of the way they weren't used to that because the stop when they saw person in the street right not the robot train now it'd be called the brooklyn when subway is delayed due to train traffic. This baltimore football team was named in recognition of the preakness stakes aches thoroughbred race then it moved to the home of the indy five hundred trading horses for horse power corey the ended apples colts that is correct correct. Sometimes a team moves to a city where it's named makes more sense. Take this basketball team founded in fort wayne indiana where its owner ran a foundry that produced engine parts. They were firing on all cylinders when they drove up to the motor city. Corey the detroit pistons since that's right yeah. This is your last clue. This basketball team was named for the ballistic missiles developed developed on the super chill beaches of sandiego but then it moved to texas where mission control calls the game anna the houston rockets that is correct. That was a very close game. Corey is in the lead if you let it in high school not for athletics but for the competitive crossword team you should be on our show go to a._m._a.

It's all about the zamboni all right. Here's your next one prior to a rules change in the early nineteen hundreds. What did hockey have in common with rugby grass outside. Could it be a helmet helmets and rugby. No audience says no. Maybe it's maybe it's the same thing do they wear pads. So i feel in general answer is like it's a safety thing all right. Let's find out you weren't allowed to pass the puck four words the on offense boy originally in hockey only lateral or backward passes were allowed. That's right. That's a rugby thing right is rugby.
