Andrea Savage was a comedic actor who appeared in some of the most popular sitcoms and big budget film comedies of the 2000s. A native of Santa Monica, CA, Savage attended New York's Cornell University, where she studied law and politics, before deciding to give up the 9-to-5 lifestyle entirely to pursue a career in comedy. With that newfound focus in mind, Savage left upstate New York and began taking improvisational comedy courses at L.A.'s famed Groundlings Theatre. Within a few years, Savage had worked her way up to becoming a regular performer on the Groundlings stage, and not long after that she started landing guest spots on television shows like "Sweet Valley High" (Syndication/UPN, 1994-97), "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" (ABC/The WB, 1996-2003), and "Suddenly Susan" (NBC, 1996-2000). Savage continued to nab small parts on popular sitcoms throughout the 2000s, in addition to appearing regularly on the Groundlings stage. It was also during this time that she started performing standup at comedy clubs all across her hometown of Southern California. Then in 2008 Savage appeared in Adam McKay's buddy comedy, "Step Brothers." The film, which starred Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in the title roles, was a huge hit at the box office, and only further raised Savage's profile in Hollywood. She followed her "Step Brothers" success up with a supporting role in the critically-acclaimed black comedy "Dinner for Schmucks" (2010), as well as multiple appearances playing various outlandish characters on the sketch comedy show "Funny or Die Presents" (HBO, 2010-11). Savage continued appearing in small roles on hit comedy shows throughout the 2010s, most notably "The League" (FX/FXX, 2009- ), "American Dad" (Fox, 2005- ), and Nick Kroll's sketch series "Kroll Show" (Comedy Central, 2013- ). In 2014 she landed a starring role as an over-the-top homemaker in the spoof series "The Hotwives of Orlando" (Hulu, 2014- ). The series debuted as a web show on the popular streaming site Hulu in the summer of 2014.
In addition to her acting career, Savage also performed standup comedy all around Los Angeles.
Savage played a South American exchange student on the teen comedy-drama series, "Sweet Valley High."
