Kristen Schaal Looks Back At Her Missed Connection With Spider-Man


Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler are returning to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with their show Hot Tub With Kurt and Kristen for the fourth time, and so too does Kristen’s heart turn back to what could have been. “I did just find out I went on a date with Andrew Garfield, who is the new Spider-Man,” Schaal says, referring to the show’s now-defunct bit Win a date with Kristen Schaal. “He was in the crowd when we did it at the Soho theatre in London and he got randomly selected and then won through the tests and I went on a date with him. But I didn’t realize – it was sort of before he broke, it was before The Social Network – and it was all a blur to me. But that was exciting to find out. He’s cute, I’m sorry it didn’t work out.”
