Stars! They Read Like Us: Andrea Savage

Andrea Savage is one seriously funny lady. She swims in comedy’s deep end–starring opposite the likes of Will Ferrell in Step Brothers, Steve Carrell in Dinner for Schmucks, and Zach Galifianakis in Dog Bites Man. We’re incredibly psyched that Andrea will be one of the stars reading works written by Figment users at the L.A. Times Festival of Books on April 21! Funny and literary? Consider us smitten.
