Mindy Kaling

Comedienne Mindy Kaling got her start as an intern at Late Night With Conan O’Brien, where the 19-year old college sophomore discovered her love for comedy and acting and worked under her “comedy hero” Conan, as told on his show reported by Buzz Feed.  As an intern, she was known for idolizing O’Brien, even at times following him to watch him intently as he performed as a comedian. From then on, Kaling went on to begin her film career in 2005 on The 40-Year-Old Virgin and now, the comedienne has her own show, The Mindy Kaling Project.
