Keeping It In The Family

| Filed under: TV News

Wonder how she got the job????

Debuting on this week's SNL is Groundlings veteran Abby Elliott, who will also become the first to start an SNL familial legacy.

Abby is the daughter of former cast member Chris Elliott.

She will be joining the team along with fellow Groundlings Michaela Watkins. The two were recruited after a months long recruiting process and will hopefully help fill in the gap left by Amy Poehler's recent departure.

The new blood bodes well for the show, which is experiencing a resurgence in ratings thanks to the U.S. presidential election.

Let's hope that the new additions can keep the show going strong well into its 34th season.

This video is Abby's hilarious impersonation of our fave hot mess Kirsten Dunst.

    Her Angelina Jolie was funnier…the voice wasn't as good, but the mannerisms were HILARIOUS and ON POINT



  11. 11

    cool….im iss chris elliott…..he was tooo funny



  12. 12

    Oh SNL the only show where the ol' impersonation auditioning is ligit. i love it and hate it all at the same time.

    samberg does it better bitch, samberg does it better. the last wahlberg movie i saw post "wahlberg talks to aniamls" viewing, i couldnt stop laughing. now when i see dunst, i'll be like "yeah, that still isnt funny."



  13. 13

    That was dumb, maybe because who cares if you can impersonate Kirsten Dunst….she looks like Nicole Richie



  14. 14

    is this supposed to be funny?



  15. 15

    She reminds me of nichole richie and drew barrymore for some odd reason. I think im tripping haha!



  16. 16

    i felt like i was about to watch a porno..that was stupid



  17. 17

    Cant see the video, Chris Elliot is cool so I guess his daughter should be.



  18. 18

    That was so not funny…Perez you are just desperate to make fun of Kirsten.



  19. 19

    gawd shes really good at the facial expressions. loves it. maybe i'll actually start watching the show now.



  20. 20



  21. 21

    that was so stupid.



  22. 22

    besides girls arent that funny, when have you heard any woman be credited on SNL before tina and amy. they were exceptions, but this girl is plain and has no spark i tell ya.

    she's just to fill in spaces till the next belushi,meyers,hartman,murray,murphy,sandler,farley,aykroyd, chevy,ferrell,parnell,hadar whoever comes along. notice none above are females.

    so yeah 2 out of how ever many funny as shit men have been on snl, i dont see how this one girl has a chance.she doesnt wow me.



  23. 23

    the voice was on



  24. 24

    Re: Lilly1978 – Si!



  25. 25

    she really hit the nail on the head on that one!

    26

    It's a strange person to imitate BUT it is spot on…



  27. 27

    About as funny as watching paint dry….. YAWN!!!



  28. 28

    She did sound like her!! Is it me or does this girl look like Nicole Ritchie? They should have her do Nicole for one of her show impersonations.

    AND BRING BACK MAYA RUDOLPH!!! SHE IS THE BEST ON THAT SHOW!!



  29. 29

    So sad that she is joining a co. that is going bankrupt and losing viewership

    I wonder if she can uphold the NBC/MSNBC motto…?



  30. 30

    Ummm…ok….I watched this one then the Angelina Jolie one, and I just don't find her funny.



  31. 31

    close your eyes and girl sounds EXACTLY like Kiki

  32. ass says – reply to this


    32

    You mentioned that she's a Groundlings veteran, imply that she does good impressions, and then you insinuate that she got the job because of her father.
    -
    Fuck Perez, do you even listen to yourself any more?!



  33. 33

    She's a cute girl but SNL needs to hire some sistas! COme on, one in 30 years? WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  34. 34

    Holy crap was that the least funny thing I've ever seen. This is the best SNL can do?



  35. 35

    ?? Erm, I didn't think it was that great, and wouldn't have known who she was impersonating if they hadn't said it. It was way too low-key to be anything remotely funny, she really needs to kick it up a few notches. I'm hoping that this is just her on a bad day, or SNL is heading for the toilet.



  36. 36

    I dont' know….not too impressive…. I'd have to see more



  37. 37

    nothing beats the 70s SNL!!!!!



  38. 38

    I LOVE Chris Elliot. I wish her the best!



  39. 39

    she sounds just like her!

    Re: jackie kay – "besides girls arent that funny, when have you heard any woman be credited on SNL before tina and amy"
    ***IS THIS A SERIOUS QUESTION???***Well let's see, before Tina & Amy there was Gilda Radner, jane Curtin, Lorraine Newman, Jan Hooks, Victoria Jackson, Molly Shannon, Sarah Silverman, Cheri Oteri, maya Rudolph, and Ana Gasteyer just to name a few…go rent some old ones & you will see what I mean



  41. 41

    Cool!



  42. 42

    You're kidding! How old is she?? (Elliot was that guy who got his start wanderig around Letterman's set, right?)



  43. 43

    Not sure who her mom is, but the mom must be super hot because this girl is really good looking and Chris Elliot (although funny) is a mess to look at.



  44. 44

    She kind of resembles Nicole Richie actually….



  45. 45

    Dude…not funny. Just a girl talking like a funny girl. Not funny what-so-ever.



  46. 46

    Oops….meant to say "just a girl talking like ANOTHER girl"…not a "funny" girl. Ha.

    I need coffee…



  47. 47

    Chris Elliott is so HOT! He makes me laugh like few others! I had no idea he was married let alone has a daughter this age! Wow! Good luck to Abby!



  48. 48

    Chris Elliot is one of the funniest F-ers ever, but his time on the SNL was more of stop-gap than full cast member. He was already established by the time he got on the show and needed something to do during a lull. I looked at it as down-grade for him at the time.

    Re: perezlova

    That's EXACTLY what I was thinking!! The guy behind the camera sounded SO creepy! It felt like one of those - "Her first porno" interviews. Icky!!



  50. 50

    I love SNL, and I always have. I think the cast is hilarious, but seriously, there are two non-white people on it. It's so bad they always have to stick Keenan Thompson and Fred Armisan in dresses.

    Re: yovovi – I couldn't agree more, but I think you may be forgetting the great and hilarious Ellen Cleghorn, so that's TWO in over 30 years.
