Arden Myrin

Arden Myrin ( /məˈriːn/; born December 10, 1973) is an American comedian and actress known for her role on the television show MADtv. Myrin was born in Little Compton, Rhode Island, a seaside fishing village. She was the younger of two children; her father was an accountant, and her mother was a real estate agent. As a child, she staged her neighborhood plays, and she enjoyed seeing Annie on Broadway. She attended the Friends Academy in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, where she graduated in 1988. She then attended Middlesex School in Concord, Massachusetts for high school. Afterwards, she attended Colorado College, a small liberal arts school, where she received a degree in theater and studio arts and she was elected commencement speaker at her graduation. During one college break, Myrin began to study improvisational comedy and worked as an intern on NBC's Late Night with Conan O’Brien in 1993-94, where she admits she "mostly ran the Xerox machine". Soon after graduation, Myrin briefly moved to Chicago when she became a member of the Improv Olympic and later re-located to Los Angeles where she was part of the same group.
