Many comedians try their hand at acting after they have had a successful tour on the comedy circuit, however, its once in a blue moon that you get actors going back to their comedic roots after a successful stint on screen.
That’s exactly what star of ‘24’, Mary Lynn Rajskub has decided to do after a respectable career as a serious actor. She first appeared in on-screen on the beloved HBO series “Mr. Show” and “The Larry Sanders Show” back in the 1990s.
Rajskub has a many other proud acting credits including an unforgettable turn in “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” After the conclusion of ‘24’, it seems that she has decided to sidle back to her roots in the form of stand-up comedy.
Rajskub didn’t start getting back into comedy until there was a lull between regular parts and felt nothing was “challenging” her so she started focusing on stand-up.
The star is not the only one whose career was launched through ‘Mr. Show’ and ‘The Larry Sanders Show.’ It saw the likes Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad) have incredible careers off the back of the shows.
She hasn’t forgotten about ’24’ though and often uses it as material for her stand-up routine.
She said: “Honestly, I know that people really love hearing about it, so that’s really the only reason I do it. It’s not like I wake up and I’m like, “Ha, ha, I was on ‘24,’ that’s so funny.””
