Abby Elliott was born with a bit of a head start in the comedy world, as the daughter of Chris Elliott and granddaughter of Bob Elliott, both respected comedians and writers themselves. Still, she forged her own path, even if it wound up going to a few places familiar to her relatives. After growing up in Connecticut, Elliott went to college in New York City for one semester before she dropped out. In 2006, she studied comedy with the acclaimed improv troupe The Groundlings and performed in sketch comedy groups at the Los Angeles' Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. She also worked with her father on a few TV show pilots, though none of them panned out. What did pan out were a few voice-acting gigs on shows such as "King of the Hill" (Fox 1997-2010). Cutting her teeth in the world of comedy, Elliott eventually joined the cast of "Saturday Night Live" (NBC 1975- ) in 2008, making her the third generation of her family to appear on the series. On SNL, Abby offered a number of memorable celebrity impressions, such as Angelina Jolie, Rachel Maddow, and Zooey Deschanel. While a cast member on SNL, Elliott appeared in a few films, including a bit role in the Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher comedy "No Strings Attached" (2011) and a leading role in the improv comedy "High Road" (2011). In 2012, she left "Saturday Night Live" and began appearing in a few television shows, including a five-episode run during the final episodes of "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS 2005-2014). Elliott also appeared in the Michael Bay reboot of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" (2014) as April O'Neil's roommate and in the indie comedy "Sex Ed" (2014). Elliott returned to series TV as the co-star of "Odd Mom Out" (Bravo 2015- ), a sitcom set on New York's fashionable Upper East Side based on the bestseller Momzillas, written by series star Jill Kargman, and in a supporting role on children's animated series "Star vs. the Forces of Evil" (Disney XD 2015- ).
