Kristen Wiig 'fearless in comedy'

Kristen Wiig has a "complete lack of vanity" when it comes to making people laugh, it has been claimed.

The actress seemingly left famed US TV show Saturday Night Live after seven years this weekend, with as much laughter as there were tears. It's yet to be confirmed whether she has moved on for good, although it is widely reported Kristen will not be returning.'s Paul Dergarabedian has praised her comedy skills.

"She reminds me of Will Ferrell with her fearlessness and almost complete lack of vanity when it comes to making comedy," he told USA Today.

"She's not afraid to get her hands dirty. [She] also has a great slapstick side to her."

Kristen appeared in last year's smash movie Bridesmaids and has many other films coming up. Paul is in no doubt her career will be long and impressive.

"I think she could be the new voice of comedy in film both as a writer and performer given her singular and seemingly universal appeal," he said.
