Gasteyer recently starred on ABC’s Suburgatory. She also currently acts as Brand Ambassador for Weight Watchers Online.
Gasteyer has starred in a range of theater productions since her triumphant Broadway debut in the revival of The Rocky Horror Show.

Her credits also include Tony-nominated Broadway productions of The Royal Family and The Threepenny Opera, Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues, and Manhattan Theatre Club’s Kimberly Akimbo. Gasteyer starred in Funny Girl at the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, and in Passion at The Chicago Shakespeare Theater, which earned her a Jefferson Award nomination. She has performed in musical acts Elegant Songs from a Handsome Woman and Let It Rip, and lent her voice to the Actor’s Fund benefit recordings of Hair and Reefer Madness.
Prior to joining SNL, Gasteyer honed her comedy skills at The Groundlings, the famed Los Angeles improv-sketch comedy group.
