Our Rebel Wilson Fan Club Expands As Universal Buys Her Comedy

Rebel Wilson

As we’ve fallen madly in love with Rebel Wilson over recent months — in a totally platonic, not stalkerish way, we swear — it’s been quite exciting to watch the rest of the world join us. The latest member of our Rebel fan club is Universal, which bought a yet-untitled comedy feature that the Pitch Perfect star will write, produce and star in, according to The Hollywood Reporter. We’re not sure how it will work into her schedule if ABC also picks up Wilson’s TV pilot, Super Fun Night, but we are sure that that one bouncer is definitely going to deny that once upon a time, he refused to let Rebel into her friend’s birthday party. Also, we really hope this movie involves singing and/or mermaid dancing.

All this Rebel love has prompted us to take a peek into the Internet to see what Rebel’s early career in Australia looked like. One of our favorite of the clips we found is actually this appearance on the Australian improv show Thank God You’re Here:

If you like your comedy with a little more embarrassment (and song!), however, you can watch her on Bogan Pride (which she also wrote) in 2008.

We could go on, but maybe we’ll wait until the next time we have great Rebel news to report!
