Ellie Kemper's one-woman show at UCB, Feeling Sad/Mad attracted the sort of attention that led to her work on The Office and in Bridesmaids. Between graduating from Princeton and getting gigs on shows like Important Things with Demetri Martin and The Gastineau Girls, Kemper appeared on improv teams working at both UCB and the nearby People's Improv Theatre, while also writing for publications such as The Onion and McSweeney's.
