Comedians are wonderful people and a blessing to humanity, it’s one thing to have a sense of humor and another to live by comedy. You can imagine the joy that was burned in the fans when Mo Collins came to the fore, an actress and comedian, not to mention that she won’t look bad if you decide to hang her portrait on the wall.
Mo is perhaps best known as a member of the cast in FOX’s sketch comedy series Mad TV. During her tenure in the series, she became known through several characters.
Mo Collins was born on July 7, 1965, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States of America. Her birth sign is cancer, which is due to her date of birth. However, her birth name was not the rather famous one we know today as Mo Collins, but rather Maureen Ann Collins. Her high school education was fostered at Robbinsdale Armstrong High School. In an attempt to refine her improvisation and sketch writing skills, she decided to attend the Dudley Riggs Brave New Workshop.
She joined the acting fraternity in 1996 and performed in Jingle All The Way in 1996. After going through the applications, theater productions, a series of commercials and couple of films, The City of Angels called and she moved to Los Angeles. Mo Collins is best known for her work on the MADtv project, and she got her breakthrough on the show at the beginning of season 4 in the fall of 1998 and remained on the MADtv train until season 9 in the spring of 2004 when she left the show. Although she left the show, her comedy genius was so sought after that she later returned for several assignments. She returned during the 10th season in 2005, the 300th episode of the 13th season in 2007, the final episode of the 14th season in 2009, and the reunion special of the show for the 20th anniversary in 2016.
She is probably best known for her roles like Doreen, the mother of an oversized toddler with a screaming voice. The annoying, strange, confused woman Lorraine and the seemingly always unhappy character of Trina.
Mo Collins has also made quite a few celebrity impressions during her time, including Martha Stewart, Barbara Bush, Cher, Courtney Cox, Judy Garland (as Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz), Jenilee Harrison, Mary Hart, Teri Hatcher, Catherine Hicks, Angelina Jolie, Jenny Jones, Jane Kaczmarek Dina Lohan, Andie MacDowell, Madonna, Penny Marshall, Audrey Meadows, Mary Tyler Moore (in several “modern-day spin” parodies of the Mary Tyler Moore Show), Alanis Morissette, Pink, Diane Sawyer, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Pamela Anderson, Shania Twain, and Shakira. Because she is very involved in her work, all of her works are very popular, and this has only helped to strengthen her following in the world of acting and beyond among her fans.
Among her other advantages are her role as Starla, who became a secretary as a business model, in the second season of “Arrested Development”, her role as a nurse with a big vagina in “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (“The Ski Lift”, Season 5, Episode 8), her role as a teacher (a teacher who gives her lessons via a live podcast because she is afraid to stand in front of the students) in the Nickelodeon sitcom “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide”, among several others
