Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Although best known as one-half of the Academy Award-nominated screenwriting duo behind the hit comedy "Bridesmaids" (2011), Annie Mumolo was already a hardworking comedic actor prior to her big break. In addition to her memorable appearance as an anxiety-ridden flight passenger in "Bridesmaids," Mumolo also nabbed several guest spots on shows like "Out of Practice" (CBS 2006) and "Modern Family" (ABC 2009- ) throughout her career. Furthermore, Mumolo also had a very prolific career as a voice over actress, having voiced roles on such notable animated shows as "American Dad!" (Fox 2005- ), "Handy Manny" (Disney Channel 2006-2013), and "The Looney Tunes Show" (Cartoon Network 2011-13). In 2014 Mumolo landed her very first series regular role on the comedy "About A Boy" (NBC 2014-15), which served as even further evidence that she was on her way to breakout success as a comedic actress. Born into an Italian-American family in Irvine, CA, Mumolo first began performing comedy while still in grade school. She found that she enjoyed making people laugh, and from there she set her sights on a career as an actress. After a brief detour as a history major at U.C.

Born into an Italian-American family in Irvine, CA, Mumolo first began performing comedy while still in grade school. She found that she enjoyed making people laugh, and from there she set her sights on a career as an actress. After a brief detour as a history major at U.C. Berkeley, where she would later earn her B.A., Mumolo moved to Los Angeles in the late 1990s to pursue her acting career in earnest. She became a member of L.A.'s famed comedy troupe The Groundlings, where she honed both her performing skills and her comedy writing chops. By the mid-2000s, Mumolo started landing small parts in movies and TV shows, including "Bewitched" (2005) and "Two and a Half Men" (CBS 2003-15). She also started lending her voice to various animated TV programs like "Random! Cartoons" (Nickelodeon 2007-09) and "The Penguins of Madagascar" (Nickelodeon 2008- ), before she and fellow Groundlings alum Kristen Wiig decided to team up to write a female-driven wedding comedy. "Bridesmaids" grossed nearly $300 million worldwide when it debuted in May of 2011. The film earned Oscar nods for Mumolo and Wiig for their screenplay, as well as a Best Supporting Actress nomination for the film's co-star, Melissa McCarthy. In the years following the smash success of "Bridesmaids," Mumolo continued to work steadily as a guest star on sitcoms like "The Goldbergs" (ABC 2013- ) and "Rake" (Fox 2014), before nabbing her first series regular role on "About a Boy." The show, about a depressed single mother and her awkward son who move in next door to a thirtysomething bachelor, debuted on NBC in February, 2014, and is based on the novel of the same name by the British writer Nick Hornby.
