One of the original cast members on Saturday Night Live in The Seventies. She was the Phrase Catcher for the line, "Jane, you ignorant slut!"[1] She later starred as Allie Lowell on Kate And Allie and Dr. Mary Albright on 3rd Rock from the Sun. Most of her work is in comedy and she tends to specialize in characters who are Comically Serious, leading to her nickname "Queen of Deadpan".

  1. This was directed at her by Dan Aykroyd during the "Point/Counterpoint" debates on Weekend Update, as a parody of Ad Hominem attacks. Her reply was, "Dan, you pompous ass!"
