If you haven’t noticed the upward trajectory of Natasha Leggero, you must not be paying attention. You know, she’s that funny girl you’ve seen on pretty much everything, and is constantly retweeted in your Twitter feed?
Leggero can frequently be seen with her pants off on “Burning Love,” and is a regular guest panelist on “Chelsea Lately.” Plus, she’s now set to guest star in the upcoming “Arrested Development” reboot on Netflix and an episode of NBC’s “Community.” Not to mention her role in the forthcoming “Drunk History” for Comedy Central.
In between hosting her own Comedy Central special and appearing on shows like “Whitney” and “Are You There, Chelsea?,” Leggero takes the time to perform at a music festival or two. On May 10, she’ll appear along with Demetri Martin and Jim Breuer at the inaugural Bottle Rock Napa Valley music, food, wine, comedy and beer festival.
Zap2it asked Natasha to submit to our “Survey Says,” Bottle Rock Napa Valley Edition. As you can see, she’s super excited about some of the bands on the lineup, and has some rather interesting backstage plans.
