Kristen Schaal, Great voice actor

I have been seeing (or rather, hearing) Kristen Schaal in a lot of things lately and I think she is hilarious. Her voice and comedic timing is awesome and she make me laugh so hard. I love her character on "Bob's Burgers". Louise, the ****-disturber. She has a great face for voice acting.

Kristen Schaal, Bob's Burgers: Season 3

Kristen Schaal, Bob's Burgers: Season 3...

It's got to be an affectation. Kristen Schaal, She probably started doing it to stand out from the crowd, and because it plays into her comedy where she acts a bit nuts. My intuition is that every actress who has a 'candy voice' is generating it artificially. With an actress like Marilyn Monroe, it might be calculated to sound young, like a child, which is supposed to be sexy, or empty-headed, which is supposed to be non-threatening to men, or breathless (also sexy). To me, I just find such voices annoying.

In the Lego Movie, Sarah Silverman puts on such a voice, but her character is a cartoon teenage girl. To use the voice both in roles and in interviews in real life would be too much.

I could be wrong. I did hear Kristen Schaal imply on a podcast that her voice is real, but I have only once ever encountered something like that in real life. I did once know a woman whose natural voice was a nasal whine. She was a graduate student in my department, around age 30, of South Asian heritage, and she once gave a 30-minute speech in the same tone. It was an impossible time.
