Mindy Kaling & Mike Schur Bond Over 'Office' Past, Compare 'Mindy Project' and 'Parks & Rec'

Way back when, The Mindy Project creator and star Mindy Kaling and Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine creator Mike Schur were writers together on The Office. More recently, they caught up with each other at a Fox press event at Soho House in Los Angeles. As is often the case when two such funny and intelligent people with a deep history together interact, the conversation was full, and funny, and full of random bits of insight. Our favorite part, though, was when Kaling and Schur discussed the differences in their shows.

Comedy voices, y'all — they'll go in all sorts of different directions. It's like a whole different kind of "diversity in comedy" conversation.

You can read the full conversation over at Vulture to learn things like what Schur thought of Kaling's pajama outfit, the effects quitting smoking had on his fashion choices, and what Schur thought about Kaling's Osama Bin Laden reference.
