    We've heard that laughter is the best medicine — and boy, do we believe that, after hanging out with actress Carisa Barreca from The Second City. The self-professed "happy, wine-drinking baker" says being funny is simply a part of her personality, which makes her job as a comedian a breeze. Also simple?

    As if we needed another reason to love her, the down-to-earth stunner claims that 98% of all her skin-care products and makeup (including her signature red lipstick) come from Walgreens.
