    A major comedic talent in front of the camera for sure. Hope we get to see her again. Would love to see Brad and Jane reappear somewhere; Coupe and Wayans, jr. had such great chemistry in Happy Endings which was one of the best television comedies in years.

  2. She’s awesome! So happy for her!
