Rachel Bloom Is a Comedy Breakout
If you've never seen the show, you may have wondered who you were looking at when Rachel Bloom collected multiple accolades during award season. Not only is she the lead, but she also helped create the series with The Devil Wears Prada writer Aline Brosh McKenna. But prior to that, she was a YouTube star with a penchant for pithy original songs that go there (which have carried over into the show). Bloom isn't just a gimmicky performer, though; she is a natural talent, especially when it comes to comedy and that Rebecca Bunch special: awkwardness.
