Biography

As one of the stars during the later years of "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ), Kristen Wiig created numerous hilariously offbeat characters - from serial braggart Penelope to mischievous grade-schooler Gilly - that had the live audience and viewers at home laughing before she could deliver a punch line. Wiig immersed herself not only in her subtly deranged original characters, but also in her spot-on celebrity impersonations that ranged from politician Nancy Pelosi's deadpan stare to Kathie Lee Gifford's belligerent morning show antics. Wiig's comic wit and charm also translated successfully on the big screen, with hilarious appearances as a snotty television executive in "Knocked Up" (2007), a loopy yoga instructor in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (2008), and an overwhelmed maid of honor in "Bridesmaids" (2011). Like "SNL" legends Gilda Radner, Molly Shannon and Tina Fey before her, Wiig made her own mark in the world of comedy and proved that being seriously funny was far from just a man's game.
