American actress, writer and comedian who studied in Paris with Marcel Marceau for one year, then moved to Los Angeles to do improv. An original cast member on TV's hit show, Saturday Night Live, she performed on the show for several years before leaving both the show and New York in 1980.

Between 1980 and 1985 she received an occasional film role, as well as cosmetic surgery on her nose. In 1985 she returned to L.A. to do a movie, Perfect, in which she played an insecure workout addict. The following year she returned to TV in a late-night syndicated show called, The Canned Film Festival. In 1987 she entered rehab to kick a substance abuse successfully.

Living in L.A., she was married to actor-writer Chad Einbinder from 1991 to 2016, and raised their two daughters, Lena and Hannah. She had curvature of the spine, and wore a body brace at age 13. Her older twin brother Paul is a marketing executive. Her sister Tracy Newman is a writer and musician.

In 2021 her memoir May You Live in Interesting Times was released on Audible.
