Kristen Joy Schaal (born January 24, 1978) is an American comedian and voice actress from Longmont, Colorado.

Schaal has had roles in ''Series/FlightOfTheConchords'', ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe2'', ''Series/ThirtyRock'', ''WesternAnimation/CaptainUnderpantsTheFirstEpicMovie'' and ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman''. She's perhaps best known as Mabel Pines from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' and Louise Belcher on ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers''. She was also a contributor on ''Series/TheDailyShowWithJonStewart'' and a writer/consultant for ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. She stars opposite Creator/WillForte in ''Series/TheLastManOnEarth''. She got to play {{God}} in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AxeCop''.

Her physical appearance, mostly {{Cloudcuckoolander}} type persona and high-pitched voice make her the 21st century counterpart to Creator/GeorgeBurns' zany comedy partner and wife Gracie Allen. The comparison is infallible even on her show ''Gravity Falls'', where her character acted as the foil to co-star Jason Ritter's character's straight man, much like Allen's foil to Burns' straight man during their old double acts.
