Four surprising facts about Jane Lynch!

The current issue of Entertainment Weekly has some interesting tidbits about Jane Lynch from her new memoir Happy Accidents that you may not have known.

** Lynch had a gig on America’s Shopping Place, an early TV home-shopping show, and she loved it.

** She’s been deaf in one ear since infancy.

** She was understudy for the Second City comedy troupe when Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Tim Meadows and Amy Sedaris were there.

** Lynch met Christopher Guest while filming a commercial for Frosted Flakes, which prompted him to cast her in Best of Show.

    “She’s been deaf in one year.”

    Deaf in one year? So, does her hearing come on for a year, then switch off for a year, then on again for the next year? And does it follow the calendar, so that on January 1, it switches on/off.

  2. ** She’s been deaf in one year since infancy.

    … in one “year”? Did you mean “ear”?

  3. Too cool facts, I just saw her on ‘My Name is Earl’ and, she was a hoot, her timing is amazing!

  4. OK everyone, thanks for catching my silly typo. Of course I meant “ear” and not “year.” xxoo
