Jill Talley played an oddball assortment of characters on the HBO sketch-comedy series "Mr. Show", the brainchild of comedians Bob Odenkirk and David Cross. Talley was married to fellow cast member Tom Kenny, who later provided the voice for the title character of Nickelodeon's quirky "SpongeBob SquarePants". After "Mr. Show" ended its run in 1998, Talley, like her husband, increasingly found work as a voiceover artist. She provided the voice of Giselle in "Stripperella", the Pamela Anderson animated series, and of Gretchen in "Camp Laszlo", Joe Murray's follow up to "Rocko's Modern Life". Later Talley joined SpongeBob and company on her husband's series, supplying the voice of Karen, the long suffering computer-spouse of Sheldon J. Plankton. In 2005, Talley lent her pipes to Sarah Dubois in the race-skewering cartoon "The Boondocks". Born in 1962 in Chicago, Talley started out as an improv comedian at The Second City. It was while with the troupe that she met her future husband, and the pair made a notable appearance as husband and wife in the Smashing Pumpkins music-video "Tonight, Tonight." Talley's first break in TV came when she was cast in the short-lived sketch-comedy series "The Edge", alongside Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Nealon, and Alan Ruck.
