House just might be a little funnier in Season 8, with stand-up comedienne/actress Charlyne Yi joining the cast.

Yi will be another new member of House’s diagnostics team, following the recent casting of Odette Annable. The two ladies will be filling the voids left by the departure of Amber Tamblyn and the now part-time status of Olivia Wilde. Wilde is expected to appear in only a handful of episodes this season.

You may know Yi from the films Knocked Up and Paper Hearts and from NBC’s Love Bites. She will first appear in this season’s second episode.

Are you excited to see Yi on the show?
