Aubrey Plaza - Who is she?

Aubrey Plaza:

She's a stand-up comedian who is starting to get a little bit more famous. Check out her hilarious Sarah Silverman impression:

She's a currently unknown actress who's found some experience with comics mostly. Such as the Jeannie Tate show:

Here she plays Tina Tate on The Jeannie Tate Show:

She might be unknown now, but after "Parks & Recreation," "Funny People," and "Scott Pilgrim VS The World" are seen, she's going to be very famous.

Aubrey Plaza of Small Wonder Productions is an actress and stand-up comedian who began acting at age 8.

She might have first met Andy Samberg when she interned at Saturday Night Live as a set designer.

Aubrey Plaza is an actress and comedian who has worked extensively with the Upright Citizens Brigade. On January 14, 2008, The Hollywood Reporter printed Plaza would join the cast of the untitled Office spinoff. She will play an intern in a small town's park and recreation department. Her boss will be played by Amy Poehler.

Also in January 2008, Plaza was added to the cast Scott Pilgrim vs the World. In Scott Pilgrim she will play the secondary character's (played by Michael Cera) girlfriend with a hot temper.

Here Aubrey is in Anti-Drug Dog, a fake commercial:

So she probably got onto the show (Parks & Recreations) due to her work with the Upright Citizens Brigade, which is owned by Amy Poehler. So Amy Poehler is still her boss (on the new show too).


"The Internet is pretty much how I got where I am." —Aubrey Plaza, on her career

"I play a kind of a young Janeane Garofalo. The great thing about the part is that she’s the girlfriend, but she’s really funny too. And Judd lets me say crazy things." —Aubrey Plaza, on her role in Funny People

And here is Aubrey as Daddy's Little Judge:

Plaza, 24, is the daughter of Bernadette Plaza of Woodbrook and David Plaza of Alapocas; and her younger sisters are Natalie and Renee (see Renee's comment below).

Plaza, a veteran in improv and in acting, is in the upcoming Judd Apatow movie "Funny People."

She graduated in 2006 from New York University and while living in New York has done a variety of things: A set design internship at "Saturday Night Live," a play (the Natalie Wood role in what she called a bad adaptation of "Rebel Without a Cause" -- so bad that when one character yelled "shoot him," the audience would chime in), a walk-on on "30 Rock," (she was leading a tour, just like she used to do as an NBC page), independent film, work for the Web (such as "Jeannie Tate," a series about a soccer mom with a talk show in her minivan) and live comedy (such as Bombardo, an all-female improv group).

As a comic, Plaza said she was inspired by Janeane Garofalo and used some of her bits early in her career.

She's been to Los Angeles enough to appear before casting directors ("it's like dating") that she cracks wise about that city, too. "I like driving in L.A. At least you have normal thoughts in the morning: 'I hope I'm not late.' In New York, on my way to work in the morning on the subway, I hope that homeless guy doesn't hit me with that mannequin hand."

Plaza's breakthrough role might be that part in "Funny People": A young Delawarean who improvises and does stand-up comedy (does that sound familiar?).

The cast did some public bonding together, which generated this squib in Entertainment Weekly about "three of its leading actors, Seth Rogan, Adam Sandler, and Jonah Hill. ... The yuksters made two appearances at the L.A. outpost of Upright Citizens Brigade (capacity: 92) along with 'The King of Queens' star Kevin James and newcomer Aubrey Plaza, all so they could hone their stand-up skills."
