Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead knows exactly what her scene would look like if she got a cameo on Girls. "It would have to be set in this nightclub in Minneapolis, where I grew up, called First Avenue," the comedienne told the Cut on Monday night at the Upright Citizens Brigade. "It was like the place to go, and all the great bands played there, but if you had any kind of zit cream on your face it glowed like, purple glow-in-the-dark. And so everyone's rite of passage was going to First Avenue when you didn't know [about the glowing zit cream], and you're there, and you're thinking you're all hot, wearing something whore-y, and everyone is checking you out. But really, they're laughing because your face is glowing. And that's my quintessential Girls scene."
