Biography

Petite and wide-eyed with a mass of curls, Andrea Martin created several memorable characters as part of the troupe writing and performing on "Second City TV/SCTV/SCTV Network" (syndicated 1977-81; NBC 1981-83). Two of her more memorable creations were the gibberish-spouting cleaning woman Prini Schlerosi and the leopard-skin-clad, tightly wound TV station manager Edith Prickley. During the course of the series run, Martin was nominated for 10 Emmy Awards for her writing (winning back to back awards in 1982 and 1983) and one for her characterizations.
