"The life of the stand-up comedian is gruelling." 

The comedy Austenland is certainly one of the hit films of this year's Sundance Film Festival, The comedy, about a young woman who goes to a Jane Austen fantasy camp, finds love, and finds that she can't trust it because she's surrounded by professional actors, We're pretty sure part of the reason Austenland is so successful is the performance by Jennifer Coolidge as a rich, amorous woman with only a vague awareness of who Jane Austen is. You know her from such hit comedies as American Pie, Legally Blonde and the television series "Two Broke Girls." Now, hear her talk to CraveOnline about Austenland and her recent stint as a stand-up comedian, only at CraveOnline!
