Jenny Slate joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in the 2009-10 season from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, the improv/sketch theater co-founded by SNL alumni Amy Poehler, where she performed her one-woman show “Dead Millionaire” to sold out crowds in the New York City and Los Angeles theaters.
Slate partnered with Gabe Liedman, and together they had their own weekly show at the Rififi, “Gabe & Jenny.” Recently, she appeared in a Verizon TV advertisement, in which she and her co-workers shout at one another due to technical failure.
Slate previously appeared in Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s parody sketch, “7th Floor West;” and had recurring arcs on HBO’s Bored To Death and the Fox comedy series Brothers. She is the author of the popular childrens’ book and short film series Marcel the Shell with Shoes On.
Originally from Milton, Massachusetts, Slate graduated from Columbia University.
