Ana Gasteyer

Ana Gasteyer will be seen on the big screen in Raising Helen, directed by Garry Marshall. Her previous film credits include What Women Want, with Mel Gibson, Woman on Top, Dick and What's the Worst That Could Happen?, opposite John Leguizamo and Martin Lawrence.

Gasteyer is best known for her incomparable work on Saturday Night Live. During her six-year stint, she created some of the most famous SNL characters, including middle school music teacher Bobbi Moughan-Culp, NPR radio host Margaret Jo, Lilith Fair poetess Cinder Calhoun, as well as spot-on impressions of Martha Stewart, Celine Dion and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

On stage, Gasteyer most recently garnered rave reviews playing the legendary role of Fanny Brice in Funny Girl at Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera. Other stage credits include Eve Ensler's acclaimed Off-Broadway hit The Vagina Monologues. Following her triumphant Broadway debut as Columbia in The Rocky Horror Show, Gasteyer has continued her work on the New York stage in Manhattan Theatre Club's hit production of Kimberly Akimbo by celebrated playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. Most recently, she starred Off-Broadway with Anna Paquin in Roulette, written by Paul Weitz (co-writer/co-director of About a Boy).

In the fall of 2002, she co-starred in the one-night-only, star-studded Funny Girl Actors Fund benefit concert, joining Whoopi Goldberg, Ricki Lake, Jane Krakowski and others as one of the many celebrities tag-teaming the role of Fanny B rice.

Prior to joining SNL, Gasteyer honed her comedy skills at The Groundlings, the famed Los Angeles improv-sketch comedy group.

In addition, Let It Rip!, Gasteyer's one-woman musical extravaganza, will encore this spring at Joe's Pub in New York City.
