While growing up in Massachusetts, Mindy Kaling felt like an outsider. Yet the Tony-winning producer, actress, and comedian believes that her upbringing as the child of immigrants put an edge on the singular tone and wit that defines her projects, from The Sex Lives of College Girls, soon to premiere its third season, to the forthcoming Legally Blonde 3. On this week’s episode of Table for Two, Kaling meets host Bruce Bozzi to discuss the specific influences that helped shape her career, and to gossip about Sex and the City, The Office’s Christmas episodes, and raising her two children.
