16 Most Underrated Performances of 2016

Thrillist named Angela’s performance in “Haters Back Off” as one of the 16 Most Underrated Performances of 2016! 

Fans of The Office must have been thrilled when they learned that their beloved Angela was going to have a more front-seat role in Colleen Ballinger’s maiden Netflix voyage. As Bethany, Kinsey plays Miranda Sings’ single mom who sports a new hair color, works at a grocery store, and complains about fake ailments. Armed with a not-so-subtle wrist brace, the actress nails her poignant part as a flawed parent, one who wants to be the No. 1 Mirfanda of all time, but who does all the wrong things at all the wrong times. Kinsey shines in her ability to elicit genuine laughter and sadness; she deserves more of these sizable opportunities to do so – Source

Netflix has ordered a second season of “Haters Back Off,” based on popular YouTube personality Colleen Ballinger’s oddball character Miranda Sings, for premiere in 2017.

The series stars Ballinger as Miranda Sings, Steve Little as Miranda’s overly confident and utterly misguided Uncle Jim, Angela Kinsey as Miranda’s mom, Bethany, Erik Stocklin, as Miranda’s neighbor and best friend, Patrick, and Francesca Reale as Miranda’s sister, Emily. – Source

Wonderful review of Angela in “Haters Back Off” by the Los Angeles Times:

But it’s Kinsey, her hair dyed brown to match Ballinger’s, who owns the show. Wearing a wrist brace for her “undiagnosed fibromyalgia,” preparing for a casual meeting with a man she likes with “conversation cards” (“Hi, Keith,” “Acts surprised”), walking into church holding Emily by the pinky, her Bethany is full of sadness and hope and ragged dignity. She takes the series from a twisted lark to something deeper and grander, where even people who don’t know their YouTube from their Vimeo may find something valuable.

About the series:

“Haters Back Off” delves into the oddball family life of Miranda Sings, an incredibly confident, totally untalented star on the rise who continues to fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous — it’s just no one knows it yet.

Angela stars as Bethany, Miranda’s mom.

The Catnip Times interviews Angela

From TheCatnipTimes.com:

Being a Tidy Insider has its perks. The awesome people at Tidy Cats invited me to go behind the scenes to watch the production of the new Tidy Cats Stank Face Public Service Announcement (PSA) starring Angela Kinsey (below). If you’ve seen the hit TV-series, “The Office,” you’ll recognize her as the actress that played crazy office cat lady, Angela Martin.

Angela is extremely witty, fun, approachable and an overall spunky lady that has been a long-time cat lover… and sadly, her beloved cat Otter, passed away only two weeks after our interview in June. RIP Otter! (photo below)

I hope you all enjoy the interview!

#StopStankFace

Angela has partnered with Tidy Cats to #StopStankFace with TidyLock Protection.

As experts in fighting litter box odor, cat litter leader Tidy Cats® today announced the launch of its new public service effort to combat the devastating effects of Stank Face, the universal expression of disgust caused by litter box odor that indiscriminately strikes cat lovers, their friends and family alike. Tidy Cats cat litter now features TidyLockProtection that locks away the odors that can lead to Stank Face.

To shed light on this important issue, Tidy Cats has partnered with actress and cat-lover Angela Kinsey to create a comedic public service announcement to educate consumers on the devastating effects of Stank Face and offer hope that there is a cure available with Tidy Cats brand litters featuring TidyLock Protection. The PSA can be viewed on Tidy Cats’ YouTube channel.

“Stank Face is a horrible condition from which no cat owner, their friends nor family should have to suffer,” said Kinsey. “As a cat-lover and an actress, I know the value of having a stank-free litter box, as well as the importance of having control over my face. Now, thanks to Tidy Cats with TidyLock Protection, I can live a Stank Face-free life.”
