Yes, Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is one of the best comedies on television, and most of its praise belongs to star Ellie Kemper and creator Tina Fey. Yet there never would have been an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt in the first place without Tituss Burgess, who plays Titus Andromedon. Is the character’s name in the title? No, it isn’t, but that doesn’t mean the former faux Iron Man can’t be, and usually isn’t, the star of the series — as well as the rest of the internet. From savage Yelp reviews to a special brand of Pinot Noir, Burgess is simply the best.
