Alanis Morissette show sheds angry image

NEW YORK, March 23 (UPI) -- Singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette sheds her longstanding angry-chick image in the new unscripted TV comedy, "We're With the Band," Rolling Stone reported.

The Comedy Central show, in which Morissette and Tom Hanks are executive producers, follows amusing situations the pop star and her bandmates encounter on- and off-stage.

Morissette's other plans include an acoustic version of her groundbreaking "Jagged Little Pill," which will be released June 13, 10 years to the day after the album bowed with the jilted-lover anthem "You Oughta Know."

Morissette said the 1995 release struck a sensitive cultural chord.

"Because rage is such a taboo emotion--and often a misunderstood one--it was understandable that everyone freaked out," Morissette told Rolling Stone.

Morissette is happy to laugh these days in the TV sitcom that was compared with "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

"Well, the older I get, the funnier things get," Morissette said. "So I think there is a levity that has come as I grow and hopefully mature."
