Age: 37 years old

Birth Place: Phoenix, Arizona

Aidy Bryant first got involved with comedy at an early age in her home town of Phoenix, AZ, where she discovered comedy improv at a teen theater camp. Attracted by the Windy City's rich history of comedy and improv theater, she moved to Chicago, IL, to study for a theatre major at Columbia College, backed up by spending a semester on the Comedy Studies program at the famed Second City in 2008. Simultaneously she also completed the iO training program in improvisational comedy. She joined the Second City's E.T.C. resident company in 2011, helping pick up a local comedy award nomination for "Best Ensemble" for "Sky's the Limit, Weather Permitting" as well as co-writing and starring in another revue called "We're All in This Room Together." At the same time she also performed improv and sketch comedy with both iO Chicago and Annoyance Theater, posting various sketches online. Her most prominent role came in Ted Tremper's improvised web series "Shrink" which picked up a New York Television Festival Award for "Best Comedy Pilot" in 2012. Bryant landed a small role the second season of the cult favorite sketch show "Comedy Bang! Bang!" (IFC, 2012-). However her big break on television came when she found a home for her quirky sense of humor joining the cast of long running comedy favorite "Saturday Night Live" (NBC 1975- ) in September 2012. While starring on the series, Bryant also found time to appear on "Girls" (HBO 2012-17) in a recurring role, and guested on comedy series including "Broad City" (Comedy Central 2014-18) and "Documentary Now!" (IFC 2015- ). Between seasons, she also appeared in supporting roles in "The Big Sick" (2017) and "I Feel Pretty" (2018). In August 2018, it was announced that Bryant would star in "Shrill" (Hulu 2019- ), a series based on Lindy West's memoir of the same name.
